Parachute Bags

by - August 05, 2013

It's my truest confession that I am a woman who has a love affair with bags. I just can't get enough of them. They overflow on my bag rack and sometimes I have the ones I'm currently using on the floor or my study table. But to be fair, I use them all and love them all. :) But we have to admit that the urge of buying is sometimes brought about by the thought of finding the perfect one, because nowadays, most people need bags that are convenient, sturdy, we can use any time; especially now that eco-friendly shopping is a must at stores, and of course, as an added bonus, has a cute design.

bags, bags, bags! where to begin???

Without any bias, I found a brand last Friday that carries bags that truly amazed me! That brand is none other than, Parachute Bags. Given the fact that their bag designs are already cute, it was awesome that they offered more than just that.

I'm currently craving for this dessert! Wish I knew what it's called.

Friends from different social media platforms gathered that day at Wood Fire Bistro at Rockwell for a night of good food, fun company and awesome bags!

Parachute was launched in November of last year and I know I first saw their stuff at Rustan's children's department and Market Market and another honest confession, I never really got the chance to probe their products well to know what they really had to offer. But I'm happy I got this chance to know more about them. Sympre naman the Artsy Fartsy in me got excited!! :)

Nifty clever bags, indeed!!

Why are they called Parachute Bags? Well, each bag can be converted from one style to another. Perfect for traveling or shopping, it looks like a simple pouch at first; you can put it in your luggage or handbags itself and when it's time to use, open it up and you've got an extra carry-on!:) 

I'm familiar with reversible bags, mind you, but this one just takes the cake! The prints are adorable and they actually turn into a whole new bag and not just the print.

Parachute supports and channels the spirit of eco-friendly shopping. Parachute uses eye-catching shapes and colours, featuring bold characters, strong prints, and lightweight material. Keeping their busy customers in mind, Parachute bags are portable and at the same time, stylish.

From that tiny pouch on the left, I can convert it into a big bag!

Like I said above, the bags are truly amazing! I can't imagine being able to convert a backpack into a tote bag or a messenger bag turning to a backpack! It's the coolest thing ever! But of course, they also offer bags that you can just tuck-in into a pouch and take it out whenever you need an extra bag. That's what mine does; see the little pouch with cute carnival prints, then when you pop it open, you have a big Mommy bag to carry around. Two personalities rolled into one!^_^

The brand offers different bag designs for all walks of life. May you be a student, child/kid, mommy and even men have something to look forward to when it comes to Parachute bags. :)

You now have more options when it comes to the design of your shopping bags. No more plain, boring totes at the market and you can start lessening the paper bags. More more Parachute bags na lang!;) *excuse to buy a new bag ;)* hehehe!
