Meet the Meco Tote

It’s Day 5 of our advent competition and today we are introducing Catherine and Emma, two Berkshire based mums, and the masterminds behind Meco! These two lovely ladies together created the perfect handbag, which is not only super practical but also very gorgeous too! This fabulous creation is called a Meco tote.

The gorgeous Catherine and Emma

The Meco tote is a new concept in handbag simplicity. Made from silicone, each one of the six sumptuous colours looks fabulous carried by the hand or over the shoulder, and contrasts perfectly with the understated handles. It also has a hidden magnetic clasp which is an essential security feature. The tote measures 36 centimetres high x 30 centimetres wide x 11 centimetres deep, (excluding handles), making it the perfect size for every day use!

The Meco Bag

This enchanting tote wears unbelievably well; you can throw mud at it, pour coffee on it or even colour it in with felt tips and it will wipe clean with a little soap and water! It doesn’t scratch, fade or stretch and is harder wearing than leather. What a dream come true!

The Sea tote

Oh wait, there’s even more glorious news! The bag is 100% vegan and cruelty free,  and the silicone used to create the tote is a natural, sand based material which is recyclable. The PU handles are also less harmful to the environment and more durable than PVC – AMAZING!

We are in love. To be in with a chance of winning a Meco tote, pop over to one of our social media pages (Instagram, Facebook or Twitter) and follow the competition directions! BEST OF LUCK! (This competition launches at 5pm tonight)

Earth Kind Originals & Portlebay Popcorn

If there’s one thing we like better than making and selling all of our lovely handmade produce, it’s working with other people who love to do the same.

Earth Kind Originals are a Cornish fashion label, that specialise in using organic and sustainable fabrics in all of their clothing. Founder Helen Davies first set the up the business in her parents’ garage back in 2009, and has since upgraded to becoming an award winning ethical fashion label, selling direct from there store in St Just, and through independent retailers around the UK. Go Helen!

“Long coastal walks with Buster the EKO spaniel, wild swims and surfs on blustery winter mornings, reminds us of why we do what we do. We aspire to promote a well-balanced lifestyle and feel good factor in everything we do, and we hope our brand reflects this”

Just like us, Helen and the team draws inspiration from the wild and windy seaside, with the Cornish landscape reflected in their style, their natural materials and of course is a welcome escape from the office!
