bag series: the minimalist

There is a reason this is one of our bestselling patterns! - The Minimalist is the perfect purse for those times when you just need to carry the essentials. Whether you're running errands or going to a sporting event, or hitting the town, you can customize it for your daily needs- with three separate compartments and two strap options, it's super versatile! 

Keep your cell phone in the front pocket for quick, easy access. Stash credit cards, cash, business cards, even a passport in the main zippered compartment or in the zippered pocket on the back of the bag. Easily clip your keyring onto one of the swivel hooks and you're ready to go!
