On their website they have a link that says: "Why Flat?" It brings you to this picture:
One day, as I was gazing at their wonderful selection, I came across- GASP- YOGA BAGS. Well, of course they would make yoga bags, they DO live in Nelson BC. Unfortunately I already have a non-eco friendly yoga bag, and so does my fiancé, so no passing along my old bag to him. Sigh.
I do own a beautiful cute little flat bag: it's blue and only one of TWO purses
that I own. I do feel fantastic about only owning two purses. I am the minority in my circle of friends. YAY low consumption! My flat bag has been fantastic, I can fit quite a bit in the little bag and the little magnetic clasps are sturdy and work wonderfully.
Here in the city, LoveMe Boutique carries a bunch of different types!
Since my sewing skills are nil (I don't even own a needle and thread) and I probably won't try to make my own yoga bag, I'm thinking this yoga bag would make a fantastic GIFT someday...
