It’s stylish, it’s cute, it’s eco – it’s a Merah Muda tote

Merah Muda mini tote bag girl child handbag bag

Both my daughters love a pretty handbag. Maybe it’s genetic (I too am partial to a pretty bag) or maybe it’s practical (they love carrying a lot of things around with them) but whatever it is, I know they will want one of these totes.

These lovely bags from Merah Muda started life as t-shirts but have been transformed by Los Angeles mum Misha. Merah muda means pink in Indonesian (Misha’s husband is from Bali) and it’s one of her favourite words.

Not everything she makes is pink though – Misha does a fabulous selection of totes and messenger bags for kids and adults. All her products are handmade from recycled tees and most are machine-washable.

They really are gorgeous, with prices starting at US$18 for the mini totes at Merah Muda’s Etsy shop. Shipping to Australia is available.
