Pretty & Practical Bags

I don’t know about you, but I’m always on the lookout for the perfect bag. It can’t be too dainty or covered with unnecessary hardware, and it has to stand up to a fair amount of daily abuse. Here are a few that I found fitting that description. Oh — and as an added bonus, all are either handmade, sustainable, or both! Decisions, decisions…

    I have way too many bags simply because I am also always looking for the perfect one as well. I'm currently using a Fjallraven backpack on my bike and a moop bag that I take everywhere else, both of which I really love. Never seen the billykirk bag before, but boy is it a beauty.

    Eva, I was recently given a Kanken backpack as a gift and I have been using it everyday since! I highly recommend it- it's super cute and very practical! 😉

    Sarah – Looks like we have similar taste and love for bags!

    Claire – You don't need to do that! But I do love that bag… maybe we need to work out a trade.

    Laura – My husband Kirk has one that he loves. I'd love to have one of my own, but am a little wary of being too matchy with him.
