I was provided this Fair Trade Urban Explorer Bag for review. All opinions are mine and mine alone.
Sling bags are one of the most flexible type of handbags that I’ve tried. A sling bag is a type of handbag that is worn over one shoulder with a strap that lays around the chest so that the bag rests on your lower back. It is similar to a messenger bag but is generally smaller. Sling bags usually have one large center compartment as well as smaller compartment on the front of the bag.
Unlike many handbags, the large center compartment isn’t divided. That’s what makes a sling bag such a versatile bag. I can use it as a traditional handbag or to hold my iPad depending on what I need. My daughter can use it as a mini messenger bag if she heads off to the library with a text book and notebook. If I had little children, I could toss a few diapers and a package of baby wipes in the bag as I headed to the park.
Fair Trade Urban Explorer Sling Bag
I received a gorgeous fair trade urban explorer sling bag from Our Family World Bags. I really love that each bag is completely unique because it is made from recycled fabric scraps. No two bags will be the same. I love unique fashions. I have no desire to see a friend with the same bag or shirt that I have. Here are the details of this adorable bag:
- Three overlapping pockets on outside with loop case using hand-made African beads.
- Durable plastic zip top.
- Handle drop 20″.
- 100% cotton
- Dimensions: 10.5″H x 12″W x 1.5″ D
I am absolutely in love with this bag. The colors are bright and vibrant and will easily go with a number of different outfits. The African beads are a beautiful touch and they add both style and visual interest to the front of the bag. Functionally, the beads help hold the contents of the pockets inside.
I’m so glad that this sling bag is fair trade. The Fair Trade Urban Explorer is part of the Global Mamas collection. Your purchase helps women in undeveloped nations provide a better life for their families! They also donate $2 from the purchase of each and every bag that they sell to foundations that help children and families in need.
