These packs are lightweight, making it convenient to carry around. The collection also has totes and clutches stamped with the Fleabag logo. As with its products, Fleabag’s new collection is made using organic materials and recycled leather, with the other vintage parts and accessories sourced from local businesses across the USA.

As an example of its support to other small-scale businesses, Fleabag owners Shira Entis and Alex Bell teamed up with local net-maker Erwin Menesses Jr. in creating the Seafarer Bag. Made from organic hemp canvas with leather straps and accessorized with dyed net, the bag is helping Menesses revive his net business after the 2010 Gulf Oil Spill reduced his profits by almost 95%.
