Although Figlia & Madre nappy bags are kitted out with all the usual accoutrements of a normal baby bag, looking at the outside, you’d never know it. These beautiful leather handbags are just for grown-ups.
Designed in Melbourne and made in Bali from soft goat leather, Figlia & Madre bags are for mums who want all the utility of a baby bag, and all the beauty of a piece for a grown-up lady.
There’s one style – the wide Essential Tote ($359) in black or tan. The easy, sleek shape of the bag means it looks equally good when you’re in skinny jeans and sneakers at the park, or when you’re suited and booted for work.
The bag is adorned with a simple zipper pocket on the outside, but on the inside, it’s all pockets and practicality. The bag has six pockets to keep various baby necessities in order. The lining is nylon, so it’s easy to wipe clean.
There’s an insulated bottle holder, a padded change mat, and detachable leather stroller straps. For a cross-body look, the bag comes with a long leather strap that clips on, and the whole lot can be stored in a dust bag when you’re not using it.
If your kids are under four though, we can’t think of any time when you won’t be using this bag.
Figlia & Madre is available online and ships in Australia for free.
