White Apple Designs

Creative recycled bags are always on my radar. Especially when they are made by enterprising individuals who put a personal touch to each item they create. White Apple Designs has done a wonderful job on their recycled bags and d├ęcor. They are run by a couple in Encinitas, CA and provide affordable, attractive and earth friendly products.

I got to try out this messenger bag made from 90% post-consumer recycled material. The outside is made from a coffee bean bag and the inside is a fun, festive print. The strap is made from seatbelt material and is surprisingly comfortable. This bag has a very large capacity so even with significant weight, my shoulder doesn't get worn out by this strap. The strap adjusts length easily and is expertly stitched at the base for a quality and lasting hold.








The front has three pockets under the flap for easy access to wipes, changing pad or snacks. There is a great little detail stitched in to the pocket on the right of this bag. I love it!
 
 
 
The inside is a good quality, heavy weight fabric with a playful and bright print. The bag is fully lined as well, so your goods are protected.
 
 
 
When I first got this bag I was surprised how large it was, and was greeted with a pleasant earthy smell that comes from the burlap coffee sack. After a few uses, that smell is gone but the style is wonderful. I get so many compliments on this bag and it's fun to tell them it's handmade in California! Usually, I pack this bag with three cloth diapers, a change of baby clothes, wipes, changing pad, lotion, snacks, a water bottle and still have room for more. For the price and the craftsmanship, this bag is a great deal. I love the work and thought that White Apple Designs has put into their products and recommend them if you need a fresh spring diaper bag or tote, head over to their Etsy site and check them out!
 
White Apple is generously offering a bag in a giveaway!
 
The giveaway ends on the 12th.

I love the messenger style bags, also the wedding packages are genius, half tempted to get bags for the whole family that way! It would be great for everyone to each have a bag for the pool this summer.
