JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 PLATINUM WINNER:Best Changing Bag Design

WHO: TIBA + MARL  – Concept

WHAT: Tiba + Marl’s new eco-friendly, adaptable, unisex range, featuring one backpack and 5 optional accessories that can customise your bag to suit whatever stage of parenting you are at. Creating a unique Concept Backpack.

WHY: Our panel loved this new concept in change bag design, which gives parents the opportunity to create their own bespoke backpack by adding a pouch, a changing mat, bottle holder, clutch or organiser or all of the above to suit their particular needs. That the whole range is made from planet friendly RPET nylon hugely impressed the panel and they also loved the fact that this build-a-bag concept could be added to and used throughout your entire life, let alone the different phases of child rearing. The chic utility aesthetic, incredible quality and rigorous attention to all aspects of practicality and technical performance blew our judges away.

A modern parenting must-buy.

When Tiba and Marl came onto the market they were a breath of fresh air. I absolutely love this versatile design that continues to lead the way.
Gemma Metcalfe, founder of Mutha. Hood @mutha.hood
Is it a fashionable bag for a woman on the go or mum's go-to for all the nappies? So cool!
Yvadney Davis, Children’s Stylist @yvadney
Love everything about this bag and design.
Heledd Harman, Ex-Marketing Manager and blogger
I particularly like the idea that this bag is unisex.

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 GOLD WINNER:Best Changing Bag Design

WHO: Alf the Label – The Ari 4-way backpack

WHAT: A fashion forward but super practical leather baby change bag, featuring ten pockets a dummy/key clip, wet-proof change mat, D-rings to attach it to your stroller and two adjustable straps that convert it from satchel to backpack.

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.

Never judge a book by its cover – never judge a bag by its exterior! This bag looks super stylish but is also incredibly practical and designed to streamline life with a baby in tow.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
I really love the luxurious design and contrasting leathers.
Yvadney Davis, Children’s Stylist @yvadney

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 SILVER WINNER:Best Changing Bag Design

WHO: Storksak –  Storksak Organic bag

WHAT: A stylish unisex baby change bag featuring an organic cotton exterior and changing mat designed with function, practicality and sustainability in mind. Stain resistant, with a wipe clean lining and made from recycled material certified by the Global Recycled Standard

WHY: This is a changing bag that really delivers on practicality and organisation while still looking soft and friendly. The speckled organic cotton print really appealed to our judges who loved the soft, subtle design and use of a clever colourway that won’t show the dirt. The panel also really liked the fact that this bag was so lightweight, a serious consideration for anyone who knows the volume of kit that needs to be transported in the early months! The stain resistant and wipe clean lining made from recycled material certified by the Global Recycled Standard also impressed the panel greatly.

Love how this doubles as a backpack and a shoulder bag. Plus, it's the best looking baby bag I have seen.
Sam Dean, Beauty Journalist and Brand Copywriter
I love that this looks like a nappy bag but is also gender neutral too.
Fatima Truscott, Fashion Stylist and writer, @the_ft_times
Cute bad and design, would totally have used this one.

JUNIOR DESIGN AWARDS 2020 BRONZE WINNER:Best Changing Bag Design

WHO: VANCHI  – Manhattan 2-Way Backpack Nappy Bag

WHAT: A unisex, practical and versatile backpack changing bag for parents on the go.

WHY: Our judges felt that a huge amount of thought had gone into this compact backpack that is equipped with storage for every need and eventuality. The two insulated bottle/food pockets enabling longer periods of time out and about, side and top pocket access for emergency grabs and an anti-theft pocket for travelling were all great touches. Overall the panel felt this was a very cool looking, comfortable and high quality bag that would pass the test of time and would be reached for way after the baby years.

A cool and super versatile bag with so many thoughtful touches.
Bonita Turner, Editor of Junior
Love the look of this bag! Especially the black one.
Heledd Harman, Blogger @heleddinlavender
Simple, stylish and unisex, this one wins for me.
