The Wendy Bag
The Wendy is a delicious caramel leather bag with no less than 7 pockets. It is large enough to fit a laptop in, has multi functional straps so you can carry over your body, shoulder or anyway you like. Long strap is removable. With great quality leather and hardware this bag only gets better with age.
Internal zipped pocket and a phone pocket big enough for the iPhone 8 plus sitting neatly beside a perfect pocket for your keys.
The story behind the Wendy bag
18 months ago, our founder Rochelle took part in the Gold Coast Homeless Connect day. This is a special day that connects the homeless community with services they can use to assist them. It's not just about information, there is entertainment, food stalls, personal care, all available for free to those who live in poverty and without a home. Rochelle took a big pink plastic tub filled with free sanitary items to give to anyone that wanted them. After setting up near the hairdressing section it wasn’t long before a woman around 45 come up and sheepishly asked if she could have some. She had got her period that day and only had one tampon, one she had found on a toilet floor. When she was told that she could take as much as she needed, the woman – let’s call her Wendy, started crying.
The knowledge that she could manage her period that month with dignity and comfort was overwhelming. They got chatting and Wendy told Rochelle her story. She and her two children had driven to the Gold Coast and were living in their car and that that was a much better life than the horror of the domestic violence she had lived with for 9 years. Very naively Rochelle asked why she stayed so long and Wendy replied "I just didn’t know where I could go, what I could do! The police had been to our home so many times." Sadly, a common story with domestic violence.
