It's easy to see that this handmade bag has been designed by someone who loves travel, photography and bags, and have therefore created something which met all of their needs. Upon opening it, I could very much feel how this had been born out of a love of cameras and style, as whilst it comes without the usual bag partitions, the bag has been separated and laid out in a way where everything has a very natural place.
Can we just take a second to talk about how stunning the patterned lining is? It's made from a recycled cotton, and really finishes the bag off nicely with a lovely vintage vibe. It's the perfect contrast to the bag's brown exterior, with the green piping detail finishing it off perfectly.
In terms of being practical, the body of the bag is a wonderful size for comfortable housing a DSLR camera with a mounted lens. There is also a long pocket to the back which is perfect for a second lens or external flash. The opening flap has a netted compartment on the reverse where you can see and store your memory cards, batteries and cleaning apparatus safely, with a second pocket on the front designed for stashing those daily essentials such as keys, coins and travel cards. All of the flaps and pockets fasten safely with gold poppers, with the bag measuring 25x22cm, with a width of 12cm.

This particular bag retails for £68.95 plus shipping, which is incredible for something which is handmade to such a high quality. Even if you're not likely to be carrying a camera about with you, it's still the perfect size for storing books, tablets, kindles and so on. The layout makes everything so easy to find, and I know this will get a lot of use of my camera free days too.
