It’s Friday and I’m bagged. Week 4: Bag as friend. Bag as family.Posted: 12/02/2010
Grab a coffee or tea and join us each Friday, to learn how these Soak worthy bags came to be. Are you bagged? Send us your favorite bag. If we feature it here, we’ll send you a Soak gift pack, in a pretty bag, of course!
Meet Carrie and Phil. The newest members of the Soak family.
Carrie is a fun-loving multi-tasker. She is as happy carrying towels to the beach and toys to the park as she is keeping your yarn stash and other neat stuff, tidy at home.
Carrie has quickly become the favorite bag of choice for travelling knitters, companies hosting retreats and swimwear shops preparing for spring. Her bright personality and durable structure make her an immediate success on both a functional and emotional level. She has displaced baskets, soft bags and the occasional tote in many wardrobes, living rooms, playrooms and closets.
Carrie, in a smaller, daintier version, made a brief appearance at The National Needle Arts tradeshow, playing host to a limited edition Soak worthy kit inspired by everything Ravelry. The kit included one of our newest patterns, yarn and a bottle of Unleash. A limited number of these kits are still available; email us, for details if you’d like to purchase one.
Phil is bright and indispensable. Phil loves protecting hand-washables from the rest of the laundry and relieving the sink of its duties by providing a safe haven for soaking. Phil, while not the most adventurous traveler, prefers the ‘stay at home’ life, shifting from bag to wash basin to storage basin on demand. He also occasionally provides a squishy and safe home for the kitties (usually with sweaters as pillows). Phil meets hand-washing with enthusiasm, and has truly become a close member of the household. Phil is eager to meet the summer sun (we live in Canada after all) so he can migrate to the cottage, filled with ice and drinks at the beach, or keeping snacks and treats sand-free.
While Phil and Carrie slowly make their way to stores near you, you can always call or email us to order them (both for yourself or for your shop). Like all great bags, once you get your hands on them, you’ll never let them go.
