It's official. We have launched BagWise.com, the UK's newest online start-up bag specialist store. Showcasing high-quality modern everyday bags from independent brands worldwide, our aim is to carve a niche in the UK’s online bag market by bringing bags that don't just come with a price tag, but also with a story.
From what started as an adventurous idea over coffee in East London a year ago, a fully functional online bag specialist store developed. Everyone, from fashionistas to businessmen, from cyclists to travellers and even the most authentic trendsetters, can now find high quality brands which are normally hard to find in the UK. Take Kletterwerks for example, an outdoor functional bag brand that make backpacks built to last. Their bags are made using high quality, durable Cordura material, and are built for any adventure, be it the great outdoors or for an everyday city lifestyle.
An enthusiasm for quality products like these, is the driving force to making sure bags are lifelong companions and initiated the idea of our 'Recycle a Bag' campaign. This gives people a chance to donate their old bags to a good cause and in exchange get a discount on a new one from us.
Inspired by urban culture, fashion and lifestyle, our product range is full of distinctive bag brands that are unique to the UK market. We are proud to say that we will be the very first British based online store to stock collections from aunts&uncles (Germany), Mensch Made by Doreen Westphal (Netherlands), Bellroy (Australia), Kletterwerks (US), The Earth (South Korea), Crumpler (Australia), Slang Barcelona (Spain) and Planka (Sweden).
Our aim is to make BagWise.com the main online gateway in the UK for independent, functional, innovative and quality niche bag brands. Our followers can expect to see more brands added as we grow.Date: 11/11/13
