I’m a bag girl. In fact, my previous blog was wholly inspired by my inability to find a professional, yet feminine work bag. Seriously, go to Coach and ask for a “business bag” you’ll get directed right to the men’s section. Infuriating. However, in the past few years, I’ve noticed an uptick in smaller designers making bags for the professional woman that weren’t repurposed diaper bags or totes. The creation of C+Q added another criteria to my bag hunt: socially conscious.
Meet the holy grail of professional bags: The Graceship. Incredibly gorgeous handbags that are vegan, sustainable, lead & chemical free, produced in a healthy, safe working environment, AND priced under $200. It honestly sounds too good to be true but just look at these bags! Sign me up!
My favorite is the London! It reminds me a lot of classic Mulberry satchels without the hefty price tag! I love how the interior is filled with pockets that have the professional woman in mind. For example, the London has a laptop sleeve that fits laptops up to 15″, business card holders, a cell phone pocket, charger pocket (!!), and pen holder. Perfect, no?
What are your favorite socially conscious & professional brands?
