For those of us who love to read, wherever we are, whether it’s out and about, travelling to and from work, on holiday or simply taking a book with us for some quiet time, there’s always the problem of how to carry our books. You can either try and fit them into your handbag if the bag is big enough, or stick them in a carrier bag (not very classy!). But now there is a real solution that is elegant and simple – Bagabook. Bagabook was created by founder Susan Doha who was in the same predicament as all other book readers. She came to the idea of making a bag that especially carried a book when she was commuting to work by train, as she passed the time by reading books. Like many of us, she found changing at stations a struggle, getting her book in and out of her handbag left her valuables exposed and vulnerable to loss.
She wanted something that would allow her to carry a book of various sizes & widths, whilst maintaining privacy when reading. With nothing available on the market she started to create a product to meet her needs and those of fellow book readers. And hence Bagabook was born. Bagabook combines features including attached bookmark, a pocket for travelcards, pen holder and magnetic clasp for easy closure. Some executive ranges also have a discreet pocket; ideal to hold mobile phones, cash etc. Susan says that since Bagabook went on sale feedback shows people also protect their books around the home and for their most precious religious books. There are two styles available. The Classic range, designed like a handbag with shoulder straps, which is available in a wide range of colours and materials appealing to the fashion conscious; and the Executive design, which comprises of a simple short carry handle, compact and practical with a touch of class &sophistication.
