This August, Atlanta Apparel will house collections of inspiring new Cruise, European Resort, Holiday, Winter, Premiere LUXE and Emerging Designer fashions at their market. Three times a year America’sMart hosts this fabulous showcase of products to make up the #1 order-writing market offering exposure to qualified buyers.

U Koala Bag, the hands-free leg holster bag inspired by the Koala Bear, is pleased to announce their participation at this event for a second time as an exhibitor in the Emerging Designer market. In January, they won the Emerging Designer Buyer’s Choice Award at the event, a selection made by ballot voting. The juried Emerging Designers collection featured a select group of fashion innovators who submitted fashion sketches, a look book or product samples for consideration.

At the market, the company will be showcasing their expanded collection including bags made in cotton canvas, microfiber, nylon, polyester, synthetic leather and authentic leather. Since its debut in 2013, U Koala Bag has enjoyed success all over the globe. Originally only available online, U koala bag is now available in more than twenty-five stores all around the world, including the Boutique of Leathers, La De Da, Inc., Roberta Weissburg Leather, Paris Isabella Clothing, and L&D Iron horse Leather.

U koala Bag and its designer, Yan Ma, have also attended numerous trade shows, including ASD Las Vegas, the world’s largest consumer-goods trade show, and the 2014 Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Tradeshow.

Yan Ma designed the U koala Bag to be hands free, making it just as ideal for strenuous activities like hiking or riding a motorcycle as it is for taking a leisurely stroll through the park. The U koala Bag is a true merging of the best of fashion, craftsmanship and utility. Yan Ma’s special ability to uniquely combine aesthetics and functionality renders attractive handbags for her collection that are also useful. They are excited to take part in the Outdoor Retailer tradeshow this year and have more people find out about their product.
