Wednesday's Work-Appropriate Bag: Nau Bags

One of my best friends forwarded me an email about Nau bags that originally came to her via Thrillist. According to its website, Nau uses environmentally friendly fabrics to create functional, elegant design. Nau sells women's and men's clothing, and accessories.

My favorite of their current offerings is the new Motif Courier (pictured). Nau's description says it all: "A refined take on the classic messenger bag, the Motil Commuter shapes technical fabrics into a cleanly integrated design. Pared down and water repellent, this shoulder bag moves easily from the saddle to the office or studio, carrying comfortably all your daily gear." The messenger bag comes in the pictured caviar. It is made from woven from durable recycled polyester and comes complete with a 17" laptop sleeve. (However, the shoulder strap has recycled wool padding -- I've yet to decide whether recycled animal products are or are not vegan . . . I guess technically they aren't, but, then again, the exact item wasn't made by using an animal -- thoughts??) The bag is $225; find it here.

Whoo hoo, glad I could help! I kind of want one of these bags for school.

Not harmful to animals, but not vegan, either. (And don't tell anyone about the wool.)
