Xpandable SnapN'Go Tote Bag (Coming soon)!

Gather your supplies now and learn new zipper technique!



SnapN'Go series was inspired by my recent Japan trip. Having launched the Duffle Bag last month, I could not stop at one design, especially since the Travel Bug is back and most countries are opening up for tourists!

Our lifestyle is driving Climate Change at an unprecedented rate. Reducing the usage of plastics will help to reduce land and water pollution and promote Sustainability. More and more countries are encouraging the use of recyclable bags and plastic bags are chargeable.

I wanted more than a recyclable bag since there are plenty of patterns out in the market. I wanted a Tote Bag that I can use when I have even MORE stuff. An expandable zipper compartment is the answer and this is a new technique for me. Glad that perseverance paid off. After two attempts, I managed to ace it!

The luggage sleeve is a MUST especially after my unforgettable encounter with my popcorn buckets shopping bag. I am almost ready for my travels in June. Look out for more Travel-themed bags.

One can always use an extra Tote Bag especially when it is foldable, lightweight, and easy to carry around in their daily bag. Perfect for shopping, traveling, groceries and even better as a gift!
