The selfie, it is a modern phenomenon. In the age of the smart phone and instagram, it seems that everyone, from Joe Blogs on the street to the world’s biggest megastars, are all obsessed with selfies. We take selfies of ourselves (natch), posing with our mates, and if we bump into someone famous, the obvious thing to do is grab a selfie with them. Yesterday (21st June) was even deigned to be ‘National Selfie Day’. So, if ever a time was ripe for a Selfie Bag to be produced, it is now, and that is exactly what the CottonBagCo have done.
The CottonBagCo have designed their very first selfie bag, and in comes in two gorgeous designs. The bag is a hardwearing oversized canvas tote, with strong handles that make it ideal to use as a beach bag, or as a strong shopper. It comes in a white printed version, but I am more drawn to the Art Deco style print of the black version, which has been giving me strong Biba vibes.
So, what makes a Selfie bag into a selfie bag? Well, first it has a safe, security zip pocket that is the perfect place to store your phone – no more searching around the bottom of your bag frantically trying to find it. So far, so what. But it also has a much longer, deeper pocket where you can also store your selfie stick safely, definitely the first time I have ever seen a bag containing this sort of pocket. There is also a reflective sheet which is great to use as a backdrop if you are trying to create the perfect selfie.
The Selfie bag is a wonderful idea with a really gorgeous design. This will be a great buy for multiple usage this Summer.
