The City Bag - a brief history

The City Bag - a brief history
You know how well laid plans go awry? Somehow, what happens in the end, is not at all what you set out to do? So it was with Snowberry's travel cosmetic/city bag...

One of the wonderful things about the Snowberry art, is that it just makes you want to create stuff with it. For example, not so long ago we invited our retail store partners to make their own Snowberry window displays with the Snowberry art. The results were in many cases, stunning! Well, quite some time ago, we decided to offer a travel cosmetics bag. Most likely, we thought, it wouldn't be so different from the zillion other little cosmetic bags we all see in-store, except it would stand out with some special art. So much for the plan! Almost a year later, and after intense design by our friends at Saben, we were looking at the bag we now have. Superbly hand crafted - every single one, and with the most exquisite materials. This bag had gone from small travel accessory, to heirloom, because without question, it could be passed lovingly down from mother to daughter. But we could only afford a small run, and hence the 25 of each kind. One featuring full-colour embroidery, and one in silver and gold duotone. And because they are unique, each one is individually numbered. It's a gorgeous bag that really, should never have come to life - but thankfully, it did, and equally thankfully, the project manager, who shall remain nameless, still has a job in Snowberry!
