Happy! is a medium size bag suitable for all occasions. The name comes from the ‘smiling’ pocket on the front of the bag. The bag is perfect for shopping or a trip to the library. The outer pocket can store quick-reach items like keys or phone and easily retrieved without the need to open the bag.
Small darts give this bag its smooth curved shape and volume. It’s closed with an optional magnetic snap. This design will appeal to young active women who are always on the go.
