It's Not a Birkin and That's What Makes It So Cool

The Together BagI never thought I'd say this, but I'm in love with a canvas bag.

Take a look.

It looks just like an Hermes Birkin Bag, that many-thousand-dollar bag carried by A-list celebrities.

But it's actually painted on a canvas tote!

LOVE. IT.

When I thought about it, I realized I don't actually have a carry-all bag for the gym or the zoo or volunteering at my daughter's school that's actually cute and funny.

This bag perfectly fits the bill.

Click through to find out this bag's amazing price, and why it's selling like hotcakes right now.

Thursday Friday is selling this tote now, called The Together Bag, in blue, red, and camel. You can get one to call your own for the fantastic price of $35.

I got one in red.

It was featured in The New York Times recently and called an "It" bag of the spring season. Created by Roni Brunn and Olena Sholomytska, the creators of Thursday Friday, the story behind its design might surprise you.

“We realized that we were using an extra bag to supplement our ‘real’ bags,” Sholomytska told The New York Times. “So we ended up with a surreal design that references luxury but is ultimately an anti-status status symbol.”

The Together Bag is backordered until February, but that's fine by me. We'll just make it a Valentine's Day present!

What do you think of The Together Bag? Would you buy one?
