The chic utility aesthetic, incredible quality and rigorous attention to all aspects of practicality and technical performance blew our judges away.

WHY: Our judges loved the fact that this stylish bag really didn’t look like a changing bag but that when you lift the flap you enter a haven of organisation, endless storage options and practicality. The high quality leather finish that looks so chic but is also wipeable was another serious plus point and the panel really liked the fact that this bag was chic enough to have a long life that would extend way beyond the baby years.
