Before I had kids, finding a purse was as simple as finding cute details, bright colors, or a beautiful design. After having kids, I have a lot more requirements for any purse that I'm going to be carrying around. Most of the time I have to carry around a large, heavy diaper bag. So when I am able to switch it up and pick a purse, its going to be one that is 1. smaller and 2. comfortable.
So when I came across the NET Effects Moxie bag, I immediately fell in love with the attractive design. I love the outside zippered pocket for quick access to my cell phone and other items. Zippered compartments are a must have for this girl. I am always worried that something may fall out of my purse during my travels and a simple zipper cures that little bit of anxiety. The interior is super spacious with a ton of room without being bulky or heavy. The strap lays comfortably and is easily adjusted. The outside is made of re-purposed remnants and end pieces of agricultural and industrial netting (hence the name) and is surprisingly durable. This bag can be wiped clean with a wet cloth and doesn't stain or damage easily. (I tend to be rough on my bags...)
The best part of this completely versatile bag is that it is a product with a cause. A portion of each sale benefits the foundation Nothing But Nets. Additionally, the NET Effects company mission is to "bring 'trade not aid' to the disenfranchised women of Cambodia." The company provides "unbeatable work conditions, quality training and good pay" to the women in Cambodia who create these bags. So many good things from just one product!
