WINNER: PLATINUM BEST CHANGING BAG DESIGN

WHO: TIBA + MARL X SELFRIDGES  – FRANKLYN TOTE

WHAT: A hybrid tote-pack, changing bag that moves seamlessly between handheld tote and hands-free backpack. Designed exclusively in collaboration with Selfridges, this sleek and unisex bag has a contemporary, sports luxe feel that informs everything from it’s ultra cool exterior to it’s generous pockets and high spec, super practical interior.

WHY: This tote-pack just oozes quality. From the robust technical nylon fabric to the oversized zip pull and the clever internal compartments, every single detail has been designed with incredible care and extra flair. Our judges could spot the attention to finish and cool luxe feel of this bag a mile off and wrote in their judges’ notes:

A brand that continues to absolutely boss the market of changing bags! Great design and concept.
Gemma Metcalfe, founder of female empowering lifestyle store Mutha. Hood

Best Changing Bag Design | Junior Design Awards 2019
WINNER: GOLD BEST CHANGING BAG DESIGN

WHO: Jem + Bea – Edie Eco Holdall

WHAT: Jem + Bea’s first first sustainable bag made with GRS (Global Recycle Standard) Certificate nylon that has been developed using recycled yarn and microfibre from disused fishing nets. A roomy interior and the option of sturdy grip handles or an over the shoulder strap makes this a great unisex travel bag for parents on the go.

WHY: Our judges loved the sleek and minimal feel of this holdall, which also has more than a hint of luxury thanks to its subtle embossed logo and high quality details like silver hardware and a vegan saffiano leather trim. The panel commented in their notes:

As well as the sustainable fabric choice, I love the fact that you could use this stylish bag way beyond the baby years. Sustainability on two very important levels.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
This is such a fantastic holdall and would be perfect for a weekend away or just for hanging over the buggy handles when you need to pack the full kit and caboodle.

Best Changing Bag Design | Junior Design Awards 2019

WINNER: SILVER BEST CHANGING BAG DESIGN

WHO: Bow and Rattle – Heather Changing Bag

WHAT: An Irish changing bag brand with a classic feel, created by mother of two Caragh O’Driscoll. Each bag is crafted from vegan leather and includes waterproof linings and luxury hardware. The bags are equipped with a thermal bottle holder, wipeable changing mat and a clear zipped pouch for wet items and extra storage.

WHY: Lots of the judges couldn’t resist taking this bag for a ride in the crook of their arm! Many commented that they loved the fact that these changing bags really didn’t look at all like changing bags from the outside and there was a lot of love for the pink colour-way. Our judges commented:

Love this new brand! Stunning design and colours with all the functionality and added extras. This will take you beyond the baby years.
Georgia Dayton and Zoe Hardman, founders of Made my Mammas
I love the simplicity of this design and the fantastic range of colours. The perfect option if you like classic luxury with a twist.

Best Changing Bag Design | Junior Design Awards 2019
WINNER: BRONZE BEST CHANGING BAG DESIGN

WHO: Kerikit – Lennox Bag

WHAT: Kerikit’s best-selling leather handbag/changing bag that combines easy elegance with fantastic practicality. Designed to be worn over the shoulder or worn cross-body with an adjustable strap.

WHY: The luxury feel of this bag really appealed to our judges who all loved the idea that this was a super practical and thoughtful change bag disguised as a stylish handbag, or should we say, a handbag that lead a double life? The fantastic deep pockets, both external and internal encouraged lots of admiring hand lunges and the simple magnetic easy to open clasp was another feature that our judges loved.

It looks and feels like a handbag but with all the feature you need for a great changing bag.
Georgia Dayton and Zoe Hardman, founders of Made by Mammas
This is such a fantastic bag and one that any fashionista would be proud to carry way beyond the baby changing months.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
