    Nomad Bag

    Delivery Method:

    Sometimes you just want a soft bag that drapes over your shoulder and wears like a broken-in pair of jeans. This bag is that bag.

    Available in 3 sizes, there is a size that will perfectly fit your purpose: the smallest bag is just right for a day-trip, a jaunt to the mall, for your lunch, or to tuck inside a big bag. It's the little bag you grab when you've got to make a quick trip. The medium sized bag is the classic all-day every-day bag. And the large size is a great tote for your knitting projects, a weekend escape, or for people like me who love a large bag even if all you've got in it is a set of keys.
