I have an obsession with bags. I love all kinds of bags, but especially the new style diaper bags since they are large and filled with pockets. My kiddo has been out of diapers for a long time, but carrying around a diaper bag still has it’s pluses! Like, I always have a snack for emergencies. I keep a stash of bandaids, boo boo cream, wipes, tissues, crayons, coloring books, sunscreen, books, drinks, socks, coupons... It’s my own Mary Poppins bag.
One of my favorite bags is my Samantha Bag from Kokopax. I love the fun pattern of the bubbles three. The sleek bag also comes with a changing pad that matches the water resistant interior fabric. The bag has a zippered pocket, three extra-deep pockets, and a beverage compartment. It also has a leather magnetic closure. The outer layer is 100 percent cotton canvas and comes in eight custom fabric designs.
Kokopax was founded in 2007 by Sarah Spoor. Sarah was introduced to a lightweight carrier that her parents used to carry her in while taking care of her four young children. The vintage carrier inspired her to create an updated model that was stylish and modern. Sarah understood the importance of being able to take care of her older children, cook, attend school functions, and travel freely while being able to carry her infant easily.
Kokopax now has three style carriers: the eco-classic carrier, classic carrier, and the city carrier. The classic carrier is the original design. The eco-classic carrier is the same design, only with oeko-tex standard 100, eco, and gots certified dyes. The city carrier is an updated version of the classic which is great for indoor and outdoor use. The carrier has a five-point harness, lightweight frame, adjustable and padded shoulder straps, sturdy kick stand for easy loading and a handy pocket. The city carrier comes in four fabric patterns.
Kokopax carriers have been a big hit with celebrities. Last month, Ellen DeGeneres gave Victoria Secret model Miranda Kerr a Kokopax carrier complete with angel wings. Read more of the story here.
You can purchase the Kokopax carriers online for $99.99-$179.99.
