Dabbawalla Bags™ dabbawallabags.com manufacturer of a whimsical crayon colored line of children’s totes unveils its newest design that every gal will want to carry. Tweens will love Dabbawalla’s new Lunch Purse (MRSP $28) because it’s cool. Their moms will love it because it is machine washable, stain-resistant and naturally insulating.
Inspired by the classic Japanese Knot Bag, the Lunch Purse sports a convenient strap-through-strap design and spacious interior that is designed for double duty. The ageless appeal and modern style of this bag makes it the grab-n-go choice for both moms and tweens who wish to tote their lunch along with all of their essentials. “Whether it is lunch, a book, phone or car keys… they can drop them all in the bag, slip the strap over their wrist and hit the road,” notes President, Susan Givens. She adds, “I saw the original Knot Bag when traveling in Asia years ago and loved the simplicity and functionality.”
The company is partnered with a family-owned and operated sewing facility in rural Taiwan, where workers receive benefits and fair trade wages. Each bag is fabricated from eco-sponge neoprene and individually crafted by a talented seamstress who takes great pride in her work to ensure that the finished product meets exacting standards. All materials used have been fully tested and exceed CPSIA standards for safety and are free of PVC, lead and Phthalates.
