Right now I love long strapped bags which leave hands free for doing other things like shopping, reading on transit, eating, etc. I wonder about us women always having to carry big bags containing everything with us when men only have a wallet in their pocket. But I myself will not travel without my wallet, lip gloss, tissue, pen, novel, you get the point. So I've designed a convenient bag for those teen girls and women who need a bag, but only for necessities and want to travel hands free.
The S Sak, which I call my design, is made of two to three fabrics for attractiveness. The strap is sewn in diagonally and made of two fabrics as well. It is lined with the contrasting fabric. The entrance to the bag is made of the same contrasting fabric as the lining and opens and closes with a drawstring. What's good about this sak is it's washable, it's attractive, functional, and it's worn diagonally to prevent the strap from slipping off. (When I carry the long strap bag the traditional way, over one shoulder, I'm forever tiring of slipping the strap back in the correct place.) The S Sak is a type of backpack with one strap and one storage space on purpose, so females can only carry what's absolutely needed.
Till the next blog.
