When I said Hello Sunday I wasn’t referring to the weekend, I was actually meaning the fabulous Australian store that is rocking the ethical and eco lifestyle.
Hello Sunday is a values driven creator of thoughtful products which fuse natural materials, ethical manufacturing and beautiful graphics. Focusing on products that add value to life as naturally as possible. Producing textile goods from cotton, leather and brass. Their Essensory candle décor ranges are created from porcelain, glass, paper and soy wax.
I was sent one of their beautiful Tote bags and opted for the Papaya Bucket Tote in Cactus design. A great size with large inner pouch and pocket, this tote is illustrated and silk screen lined.
The straps are vegan leather and the tassel is stunning (I do have a lot of tassels on things and this is most definitely one of the more well made ones!) Measurements are 430x380x150mm with a 400mm strap so a great ‘throw over the shoulder’ style bag.
I took it with me to both the spa and the beach, so it had at least a towel, costume, book, phone, hair brush, purse and keys yet there was still ample space for so much more. The magnetic clasp at the top is stitched into place inside the lining making it less likely to come away and it certainly packs some force.
The colours are muted so work well with everything and I think would be equally as great on a night out for a meal as it would be during a day at the beach.
The great thing about Hello Sunday is that as well as searching the world for the freshest artistic talent to bring shoppers unique designs they also ensure their factories workers are treated with kindness and respect.
They have a blog themselves which features write ups about the artists and ideas for travelling or being more mindful.
I was gifted the bag for the purpose of this review, all views and opinions are my own and genuine.
For those who prefer a more traditional home-like experience when on vacation, a timeshare can make sense. If you’ve gotten many years of good use out of your timeshare and now want to get rid of it, a timeshare cancellation company like Timeshare Freedom Group or Lonestar transfer may be able to help.
