Introducing the stunning range of Carmelina baby changing bags

Thursday, April 25th, 2013

When I shop for a new handbag I like to have something different, something that I won’t see every second person carrying. I also like something that has been well thought out and it must feel luxuriously soft to touch. I am so excited to introduce you to the gorgeous range of baby nappy bags by Carmelina. So why am I so excited? This nappy bag range epitomises everything that I think a nappy bag should be and most importantly the designs are original. Carmelina is an Australian designed diaper bag range created by mother of two, Carmel Margaritis. Carmel developed her range of changing bags when her first child was born. She was inspired to create a stylish, functional and fashionable product- I think the future looks very exciting for this brand. What do you think?

On another note, lest we forget on Anzac day. Please take a moment to pause today, to remember those who gave their lives and those that are in service today or have been in the past. I admire you all and I am ever so grateful for what you have given and continue to give.

They went with songs to the battle, they were young.
Straight of limb, true of eyes, steady and aglow.
They were staunch to the end against odds uncounted,
They fell with their faces to the foe.
They shall grow not old, as we that are left grow old:
Age shall not weary them, nor the years condemn.
At the going down of the sun and in the morning,
We will remember them.

We love the il tutto nappy bag range. What’s not to love!? They are Australian designed and made from the MOST luxuriously soft Italian leathers. The workmanship on these nappy bags is second to none- yes they are a little pricier than some of the more common nappy bag brands on the market, but they are extremely durable and when you hold one in your arms you can feel the quality of the materials. We are yet to have any warranty issues with this range, we believe this is a testament to the quality of the workmanship and materials used to manufacture the il tutto nappy bags. I also admire the love and hard work that goes into designing each il tutto nappy bag. The founder of il tutto, Lucie Trinco, tediously designs each nappy bag, starting from scratch with hand sketches! Her passion and flare for design along with her experience in the fashion industry has culminated into what I believe has created one, if not the, most sought after nappy bag brand in the world.

Check out Lucie’s blog, you’ll see just how committed she is to her craft and I love that she is so personal with her posts and you can really get to know the person behind the brand.
