Friendship Beads Funky Bum Bag
Ethically made in small quantities at our studio in Newtown, Australia.
The notorious Bum B.A.G has long been a divisive figure in fashion. Those with the necessary effortless cool to rock one will testify at their incredible convenience. The new-school carry-all, this Funky Bum Bag is a lifesaver whether you're heading down to the beach, walking your furry best friend or bouncing over to brunch!
DESIGN: Our Friendship Beads Funky Bum Bag has it all - a gorgeous print with a great story behind it, enough space to hold all your essentials and then some, and a YKK zip to keep everything contained and secure. To top it all off, an Alice McCall donated buckle closure that makes popping this Funky Bum Bag on and off a breeze.
FABRIC: Outer: Donated cotton/elastane blend, spliced with fabric donated from Bianca Spender (one of our industry partners working to divert waste fabric) that's been saved from landfill. Lining: assorted donated fabrics, so the interior of each purse is a unique surprise!
PRINT: The Friendship Beads Print, features the ‘Friendship Beads’ print design by Kenyan-born surface and textile designer Jo Kalute, in collaboration with The Social Outfit. Please note that print placement may vary, as we cut our garments to reduce fabric wastage.
