Namaste Inc. Handbag Review & Giveaway



I love namaste handbags. Although the company is known for making handbags to store knitting supplies (great for those who like to carry their knitting stuff with them), they also make bags that are prefect as diaper bags.

I recently received their Hermosa bag in eggplant to review. First of all, I love the color of this bag. At night, it looks like a black purse, but when the sun light hits it during the day, you can see the beautiful dark purple color.

It is hard to tell from this photo, but the bag is huge. While it works great as a diaper bag (with lots of room for diapers, change of clothes and other baby essentials for baby G), I think it will also work well as a business bag because it has enough room for paperwork, files and a laptop.

The inside of the bag has this cute print that I totally adore. The bag also has lots of compartments. On the inside, there is a place for my cell phone, a small pocket for my car keys and a zipper pocket that I am using for teething necklaces and diaper rash cream. On the outside, there are 2 side pockets (which could be used to hold baby bottles). The front has 2 zipper pockets which I am using to store my wallet and other loose things that I often reach for (like gum, lipstick and pens).

How big is the bag? Well, big enough to fit a baby in it :). But don't let that deceive you. The bag is very deep but not bulky so it is comfortable enough for me to carry it over my shoulder.

In addition to getting the bag to review, the company also sent me the "Mommy on the Move" kit to review. It came with a baby wipe case and a changing pad that matches the color of my bag.
I love the both the bag and the changing pad are so easy to clean up. When there is a mess, I just need to wipe it down and everything looks new again. If you are a mom, you understand how messy kids can get. My friend told me that on her silk diaper bag, one of her kids ate some tacos and put his greasy hands on the bag. She ended up paying $35 to have her diaper bag dry cleaned. With my namaste bag, I just need to wipe it down to clean it!

I love my namaste bag and I know you will too. To buy one for yourself, please visit the namaste website to make your purchase.

Many thanks to namaste. The company has generously offered a $91 gift card as a giveaway prize to one of my lucky readers (US residents only please). You can either use this gift card for the bag I received to review or for another other bag you like.

Don't put too much in it. I tried to carry a laptop and some books, and the handles stretched way out of shape.

Probably my favorite bag is the Hermosa (in eggplant, like yours), but I also like the Urban Hipholster in the blue color. Perfect for carrying a small project!

tashystation said...

I would love to get the Zuma, in peacock or turquoise. It is such a spacious yet stylish bag.
