After years of searching for her perfect size beach bag, Lucy Stewart, the founder of a new beachwear company, Honor Beach, decided to make her own. ” There were many lovely beach bags around, but I could never find any quite big enough or in a fabric I liked”
The idea was to create a bag big enough for several towels but also sturdy enough to hold buckets & spades or beach toys. Along with the sizing, a few other criteria had to be met. The bag needed to be lined, so if sitting on a tidal beach with wet sand, the contents would be protected. Also, there needed to be internal pockets for holding keys, a phone and any other bits and pieces we need on the beach. The bags also come with a handy detachable shoulder strap. ” I just know that feeling of walking to the beach with small children trying to carry everything and hold hands at the same time, so tried to come up with a beach bag to help with these practicalities.” Lucy said.
Having said that, the bags also look great too. They come in three colour ways with a chevron zig zag design – a fun, colour popping Neon Pink and White, a more classic Navy and White and a very pretty Pale Grey/Yellow and White.
Once the bags had been manufactured, Lucy then decided to add a zipped pouch as an optional extra. In matching fabrics, these pouches can be used as a make up bag, for suncreams or even as a purse so you don’t have to take the whole bag if you head to a restaurant or beach bar. They can be clipped in to the co-ordinating Honor Beach Bag.
From my point of view at Luxury Travel Diary, trips down to my local Sandbanks can be a right pain if you haven’t got a big enough bag. And big bags tend to be so ugly! This bag is both big enough and looks just lovely so I can pack everything I need whilst maintaining my stylish look. I still have to figure out how to wear heels without sinking into the sand, but for now my designer flip flops complete the look!
If you feel like matching, The bags also compliment the Honor Beach range of kaftans, shirts and cover ups that can all be bought online at www.honorbeach.com.
