Finally, for about what you'd pay for the "uninspirational, dull coffins" that are your typical snooze-worthy laptop bags, clever Irish designer Anna Vahey Casey & fashion-conscious Texan Jeri Barr put their heads together and dreamed up J'Tote.
Not only are the bags stylish & even eyecatching, but well thought out design-wise with roomy compartments for folders, writing pads, paperwork, gadgets & powercords...as well as makeup & other must-schelp-withs. Even the names of the bags are fun & romantic - such as Afric, Melania (a 4th & 5th century philanthropist), Saoirse (pronounced seer-shah & means freedom), and Derville (true desire).
Currently, they are donating a percentage of the proceeds of each bag sold to a charity that helps special needs kids have their first outdoor nature experience.
