It’s the age old problem, too much stuff, too small a bag. So what do you wear when you have a ton of stuff to lug, but don’t want to destroy your fancy day bag?
The Gabrielle Satchel from Pansy can be worn four different ways – satchel style, messenger style, shoulder bag style and as a backpack. Grab the faux leather handle and tote your iPad to work, sling it against your hip for a stylish commute, and pack all your essentials to carry backpack-style for a weekend away…or maybe for a bike ride to pick up some vegan donuts.
The exterior is made from supple organic twill, and the eco-friendly faux leather accents protect corners and flap against constant wear, which means no frayed edges – just a long-lasting bag with long-lasting cuteness. Faux leather is inherently weather resistant, chemical free, durable and vegan. The small pocket right under the flap gives easy access to things you need fast like a cell phone, metro card, or sunglasses. Four large pockets on the inside of the bag keep you from scrambling to find your everyday stuff, while a large zipper pocket on the back exterior wall keeps prized possessions (journal, passport, love letters…) close to you.
When worn as a backpack, the Gabrielle Satchel is designed to fall comfortably mid-back. You might even forget it’s there until someone asks where you got it! And you can spot clean it easily with mild soap. Pansy Maiden makes really cute vegan, earth-happy bags that are so wearable and affordable, and hand-made right here in the US of A! :) We love that they make utilitarian fashion somehow femmey!
