Mum's The Word On Baby Bags March 13 2014, 0 Comments

Baby bags can be a drab and uninteresting affair, but this summer, we've had our ATHINAEUM Grande Maletta being lovingly toted around by some super hot mamas around Australia.

And boy, have they been loving them! Linda Tahija of Linda Tahija Jewellery says of her Grande Maletta "Oh I am in love with mine! Perfect for all the baby things I need to carry around!"

Saskia Burmeister (pictured below) raved about her unique Grande Maletta saying, "Love love love my Grande Maletta so much!"

So, looking for a unique, handcrafted, upcycled, ethically made mama's bag?

Just buckle bub in the pram, slip the extendable strap over the handles and you're good to go with an ATHINAEUM Grande Maletta!


Design Note: The inside of the Grande Maletta is not designed with the multiple pockets of a regular baby bag however it has two 15cm x 15cm internal pockets on either side of the lining. One is zippered and one is open. The rest of the space is totally fre to chuck in as much stuff in as possible. Please note that tasseled front pocket is a great place to hold your phone, wallet and keys. The best thing about this bag is that after the baby is all grown up you'll still be able to use it like a regular and cool handbag or getaway bag!
