What does a terrific tote bag have to do with Passover? One word.
Every year, I “keep” Passover and abstain from eating chametz (although I decided last year to admit that I eat Kitniyot for my health)
Today, most women I know are hypermobile for work and life all the time, including during Passover.
“Passover food” schlep
During Passover, I need a bag to carry my normal life stuff plus all my “Passover food”. Most women today schlep kosher-for-Passover food for themselves and their family. My Passover food includes quinoa-cranberry-mandarin salad and for dessert a container of Tapioca rum raisin pudding.
That is a photo of me in Tokyo during Passover in 2016 holding my box of Manischewitz tam tam crackers on a pedestrian highway bridge. I carried this box of snack crackers around in my bag for 7 days and it was….well awkward.
I need a bag for Passover that will make my life a little bit easier.
The Oliver Thomas Wingwoman Tote
I found the perfect bag for Passover (and the rest of the year too): The Oliver Thomas wingwoman large tote.
Oliver Thomas is on a mission to create joyful and functional and attractive bags for busy women.
Here are a few things we like about Oliver Thomas bags:
- Their bags are super lightweight and have a special shoulder snap strap that keeps the bag in place (tell your Mom that the Head of Orthopedic Surgery at Mass. General even validated this bag as healthy for our back and shoulders).
- Their bags are durable, water resistant, and machine washable.
- The tote bag has a “My Secret Stash” pouch and additional compartments in every bag to keep us organized and to give us some privacy!
- The bag has an internal key clip so we will not lose our keys every other minute.
- 100% vegan
