These bags are “hip”! Not only does our Balance Hip Bag keep your keys, wallet, snacks and more hands-free yet close-at-hand, each bag diverts plastic water bottles AND plants trees—meaning you look good while doing good for the planet.
Designed by Michelle Lowden (Acoma Pueblo), the Balance design is influenced by traditional Acoma Pueblo pottery, which shares patterns and designs from nature. Michelle’s design is a meditation on intentionality, and the mandala-like symmetry embodies the balance we all strive for.
Whether you call this style a hip bag, fanny pack, sling bag, cross pack, belt bag, or bum bag, you’ll love our Balance Hip Bag for several reasons. First, these hip bags are extra roomy, ensuring you have enough space for your wallet, phone, and even a water bottle. Secondly, these bags are made of recycled PET, which means they save water bottles from the landfill, and are created with a carbon-neutral practice through SeaTrees.
