Eve's Bags: Punchy & Parisian

Eve’s Bags: Punchy & Parisian

Some girls are crazy about clothes, others love their jewellery and makeup. For me, it’s always been about bags and shoes. That’s not to say I don’t love a nice pair of earrings or a cute dress, but the one (or actually two) things I can never resist are bags and shoes. Especially if they’ve got an original, artsy twist. Mostly because I like to think I’m a bit different from the masses and partly because I’d secretly like to be an artist myself (wishful thinking since I got zero drawing, painting or other visual arts talent, alas).

So although I’ll probably never be the next big thing on Planet Artist myself, I can however feature the work from artists I love on my blog. If you’ve been following me for awhile you know I do so once a month with a design from Diseño de Sharona for example.

Those of you giving the whole ‘creativity thing’ a try yourselves – whether it is a blog you write or a painting you’ve made and then shared on social media – know that it’s pretty bloody scary to put yourself out there like that. That’s why I truly admire people who express themselves creatively, opening up to a world that isn’t always easy when it comes to criticising other people’s work.

Since there are so many talented, young artists out there that (in my humble opinion) deserve a lot more attention, I’m always super happy when I can feature someone here. Like Eve Damon. I came across her work – and bags – a few months ago and I immediately became a fan.

Paris in New York – love it

Personally, I love a good tote bag. I’m one of those people who loves to throw anything in my bag: my laptop, wallet, a bottle of water, keys, a notebook (always), pens, chewing gum, you name it. Needless to say, my tote needs to be pretty strong! And big enough to carry my everyday essentials at the same time. Oh, and have that original twist I mentioned earlier.

Eve’s bags tick all these boxes: they’re made from eco-friendly material, come in different colours and – my personal favourite – each bag has a cool statement kind of thing written on it. Think of ‘I Believe in Paris’ (yep, the one I had to have), ‘Vegan Whatever’ or ‘I Love Paris & Chanel’ for example. Pretty punchy words, which is why I like em so much.

Anyhow, my I Believe in Paris tote has been traveling the world with me lately and is still going strong, as you can see in the pictures. If you like Eve’s bags, do check out her website, Etsy shop or Instagram! She also makes these incredible scarfs – and does customised versions – so go and have a look.

Before you go, if you know an artist or are one yourself and you’d like to be featured on my blog, please do let me know!

  1. My daughters are obsessed with purses and bags these days… they are only 3 and 1 so I know we will have trouble on our hands in a few years!! I do love a good tote, especially for kids stuff because its all nice and roomy!

  2. I’m a bag and shoe girl too… I have far too many to count and always find it hard to decide which one to take away with me. I love that Eve’s bags are roomy enough to take to the beach and the straps are long enough you can put them on your shoulder. The eco friendliness is a huge plus.
