" I was using a canvas tote, but it always gets so wet"
Talking of water, did you know it takes around 243 litres to make an organic cotton tote?
It takes 2.6 litres to make one of our totes, thats 100 times less- AND they're waterproof!
Plus, all our fabrics have already been used for their original purpose [as bouncy castles] and were already considered 'waste' and heading to landfill before we intercepted!
We've heard people say these bags are like the Tardis, bigger than you think!
I take one to work every day and heres what i get in it [comfortably!]
- laptop, [ plus charger] A5 diary [rammed with pointless bits of paper], camera, [as in proper camera, not phone, with considerable lens!] purse, keys [on substantial lanyard to prevent constant losing], lunch, reusable coffee cup, hand cream... you see... LOADS!
These make a great reusable and tough alternative to a plastic carrier bag
simple and stylish enough to be worn on a day to day basis, as a gym, swim or baby bag... pretty much any purpose you can think of!
Each one arrives with its own 'I Was A Bouncy Castle' label of provenance, so if its a gift- you don't need to do the explaining!
features: wipe clean inside and out, reusable and water resistant, with hard wearing 25mm webbing shoulder straps -inner slide phone pocket and full top zip closure, in a complimenting [probably clashing!] colour way... colour may vary, due to the recycled nature of our fabrics-which is also why there may be a few characterful crinkles too!

How can I remove crinkles from my bag?
Please do remember- our fabrics are ALL salvaged- the odd mark and crinkle adds to the character and should be expected. If you would like to flatten the fabric of your bag, we recommend placing it face down, underneath some books/magazines on a flat surface, overnight. The remaining creases will drop out gradually during daily use
