When I was asked to review a handmade bag by Krukrustudio, I was beyond excited.
I spent ages drooling over their amazing styles before finally deciding on the Instagram one (pictured below). If you follow me on social media; you’ll know I am a complete Instagram addict, so this design really screamed out to me!
Krukrustudio make each bag to order, and it takes 7-10 days to be shipped (from Russia). It took 12 days for my chosen bag to arrive, and it was well worth the wait!
The bag is 8.3in x 8.3in x 1.7in (large enough to hold an iPad mini)! The adjustable strap measures up to 1.24cm and it has high quality metal clips, which make the strap removable. The bag has a high quality zip fastening, and there is an unzipped pocket inside. The exterior of the bag is made from Spanish Wool Felt, while the lining is polyester.
The “Lens” part of the bag sticks out around an inch, and is fairly rigid. The “flash” and the “lens” are coated with flexible, clear plastic. I was amazed at the high quality of the bag. It really is a work of art! Here are some photos I took with a red background for added contrast…
The bag is available to purchase from Krukrustudio’s etsy store or directly from their website. It is priced at around £80 (prices vary slightly day to day as exchange rates fluctuate). There is a tiny label sewn into the side of the bag with the brand name on it – you can’t see it from the front, though.
I have been using the bag daily for a couple of weeks now, and love it! I’ve been stopped and complimented on it several times, and can’t help but smile whenever I look at it. The bag easily holds my car keys, purse, a couple of nappies, a pack of wipes, a filofax and a toddler juice bottle! (Or an iPad Mini – if you don’t have to carry toddler supplies)!
The only thing which could have made the bag better would have been a zip pocket on the rear, so I could quickly access my phone without opening up the main compartment, but I really am splitting hairs to find a flaw. If you’re as geeky as I am, I bet there’s a bag you’ll love on the Krukrustudio etsy store. I have already bookmarked this beauty for when my laptop bag needs replacing…!!
