I've never been one to carry a briefcase or laptop bag. I mean I have, but it didn't excite me. Up to now, a laptop bag has been purely utilitarian--something I needed, but not necessarily loved.
Then last weekend at the Dallas Farmers Market I met Caroline with VerverWerks.
I noticed the bags right away and was immediately drawn to the colorful straps and fabric inside the bag. After talking with Caroline (who is adorable, by the way) I told her I had never seen anything like this before. She went on to explain that she started designing and making messenger bags and cross body bags after spending time in South America and appreciating the local culture and textile handicrafts. She wondered how she could incorporate the craft into every day use. This is what she came up with. I love that you're able to mix and match straps with bags, and add fun bag charms. You should probably stop reading right now and go to her website to get the full picture, but come right back because I have exciting news at the end of this post.
Long story short, I fell in love with Caroline and her story and her spirit right away, and the bags are MAGNIFICENT.
Each bag comes with two (TWO) straps--one patterned, colorful one, and a solid leather one. This way, if you need to seem more professional or you're not in the mood for pattern, you have options. My thought is HOW COULD YOU NOT BE IN THE MOOD FOR PATTERN, AM I RIGHT?
Options, you have them.
