I wear my bags hard. The ones under my eyes and the ones on my shoulder. About a month ago, my 2-year-old tote bit the unrepairable dust, and like magic, a few days later, @samuibags
offered me this Full Moon Backpack as part of our yearlong partnership. I was pleased, so was my mum (who happened to be there when I opened it), as she had been scolding me for about three years about getting a backpack so I might distribute the weight I port around evenly … I ignored her (as usual) and continued to complain about my shoulder and neck pain instead. Along with my laptop, my usual shoulder bound paraphernalia includes a reusable water bottle, a reusable coffee mug, and some reusable produce bags, along with the girly stuff most gals have on their person. So, it’s heavy. And I’m getting to that age in life where things need to be practical to accommodate my swiftly ageing body, yet I am still young enough that I care equally that it looks ‘cool’… leaving me in an internal practicality vs aesthetics debate often. This @samuibags
; however, hits two birds with one stone in that sense, as it's made with beautiful traditionally woven weaving techniques, the same ones used to create ceremonial clothing. It’s undoubtedly aesthetically pleasing, and you can feel the quality of the fabric and stitching each time you touch it. Each one is handmade in rural Thailand under ethical working conditions by artisans earning fair wages, creating a positive embrace bound to infuse the items with that lovin’ feelin’ and brighten up each day.
