Roma Weekend Bag
One for the road.
Hello, gorgeous. Smooth, leather-like paper meets soft-and-sturdy canvas handles in this tote’s simple, stylish design. You’ll want to keep it by your door all week as a reminder of what your weekend has in store for you: Will you fill it with beach towels and sunblock for a day in the sand? Or maybe a solar travel light and a s’mores kit for a mountainside cabin retreat?
Wherever you’re headed, this weekender isn’t just a looker, it’ll keep right up with you: It’s made of Uashmama’s new technical paper range, which is both waterproof (you heard us right, waterproof paper) and lightweight. This incredible paper material is stretched and tanned just like leather is to make it soft and resilient. Inside, the bag is roomy enough for your weekend travel necessities, plus a lunch and good book, and includes a handy zipper pocket and two slide-in pockets. And to top it all off, the two-way zip closure allows you to quickly open one side or the other if you need to reach in and grab something on a drizzly day or busy street.
