What makes the perfect weekend bag?

The staycation is here to stay and that means we can make plans for weekends away without the stress of international travel. Staying local means that you can get away overnight somewhere that’s not too far away.

You may not want to pack a full suitcase for a short trip. This is where the weekend bag is the perfect solution. Picking the best weekend bag depends on a few factors.

Space for overnight clothes

Space is the key factor for your weekender. It needs to have enough space to hold the clothes you need, but not so much that you end up taking too much. You don’t want an aching shoulder when you carry it. The perfect weekender is roomy enough for a change of clothing (or two).

Plenty of pockets to pack in

Now that we call carry about a lot of tech gear, between phone, kindle or tablet, charger, camera, purse, makeup, we need pockets to stash these in. The perfect overnight bag has a choice of pockets for items that you want easy access to and those that you want to be secure.

Quality material and durability

A weekend bag needs to be made of sturdy material, especially if you are using public transport. Even if you aren’t, it needs to be able to cope with being transferred around in luggage carts at hotels, in car boots, and on floors or counters while you check in.

A style to suit you

The style of your weekend bag is up to you. You might want a bright bag that stands out so you can spot it in the crowd or a neutral colour that will go with every outfit. When you are away there is every chance you will meet new people and you might as well say something about who you are!

Nushi makes a lovely tweed overnight bag, called Foxglove with lots of space. It has a secure internal pocket for more valuable items and a clasp fastening. The lining is a practical polyester suede and the tweed is durable.

Rose is an animal print weekend bag in soft animal print faux fur. Rose makes a statement but is one of our most popular handbags. It is roomy, and has two pockets, one internal zipped pocket and one external pocket flap that is easy to access for keys, etc.

Both bags are unique, handmade in our workroom and we know that you will love them!
