A new Duffel Bag line has been introduced, intended for use by the world traveler. The bag is a perfect option for eco-friendly travelers because it is lightweight and made from 86% recycled content. Available in five colors, the bags can be stuffed into the front zipper pocket and each includes a carabiner.
The Blossom Collection consists of Lotus Flower, Cherry Blossom, Green Tea and Chai designs. Bags are produced, according to the company, by using sublimation techniques which give a softer hand feel. Each bag features blossoms in full bloom. With no shortage in style, the bags can hold up to 40 pounds.
DesignByHumans are a line of limited edition reusable bags. These bags feature creations from artists around the world and have been made available only through ChicoBag. Each bag pays tribute to the name and city of its creator. Made from woven polyester, each bag offers easy opening and stuffing.
The Timeless Collection includes five classic black and white prints, which were created in ChicoBag’s signature Vita style. Featuring shoulder-length straps, the bags are an excellent addition to the wardrobe of those who are fashion savvy. No special folding is required and the bags can be machine washed and hung dry.
The company releases “their most unforgettable reusable bag yet,” the Micro. This lightweight bag made with durable micro-ripstop fabric provides high performance, in that it can be compacted down to the size of an egg. Says ChicoBag founder, Andy Keller, “I set out six years ago to design a compact reusable bag that would be impossible to forget. The Micro is a bag that really fulfills this goal.”
