Offering trendy on-the-go adults a stylish option to the brown paper bags or plastic shopping bags you're used to, is Canadian start-up Modern Mary. Their 100 per cent Made-In-Canada products use soft, genuine leather and feature removable utensil pouches, secure zip-top closures, and roomy, water-resistant, insulated interiors.
“In 2013, I used a lululemon bag as my lunch bag (don’t act like you haven’t before). Working at a trendy downtown office, I knew I needed to step up my lunch bag faux pas," says owner and founder of Modern Mary, Teresa Santarsia. “Modern Mary products are well-made classic pieces with modern designs. I wanted a lunch bag that was stylish and gender neutral – a piece that helped to express my personal style and stand up to my must-have list.”
These stylish food clutches even follow the colour trends as seen in high-fashion runway collections, with favourites ranging from electric yellow to sapphire blue. Neutrals like neutral black and scotch-hue crocodile embossed leather are colour options for those who are less risqué in their colour play.
Available in two sizes, piccolo (small) and grande (large), Modern Mary retails from $155-$188 and is available on their website, modern-mary.com.
