What woman doesn’t love a nice handbag? I know I do?!

For me, it became apparent after becoming a mum that I needed to invest in better handbags for my collection, as they need to withstand more. I needed well crafted, fashionably innovative handbags that were durable enough to withstand the onslaught that is little children attempting to tear them apart on a daily basis.

At least this is what I tell my husband, anyways…

Just when I thought I was kicking my addiction I came across the Dutch brand Maringe, founded in 2010 by Maringe Berlijn. Maringe designs a great collection of quality leather bags for women and she recently launched a children’s line as well.

Just like big girls, little girls love handbags, and just like mummy they often want to carry a wide variety of purse styles all capable of carrying toys, or a small snack, combs and plastic mirrors for their dolly also make a nice addition.

And whilst very small girls may be happy carrying a small bag, older girls will likely want a bag that resembles their mother’s, like Maringe’s Like a feather bag for example.

It’s also good to know that each piece of Maringe’s collection has been individually designed, hand-crafted and perfected by the designer in her atelier in Amsterdam, Holland, to deliver her signature quality and attention to detail.

Luckily, there are more than enough selections to keep everyone happy. Lilly already picked her favourite, the ‘MINIMING Girlpurse’.
