Running an errand in town? Your ipad always on the go with you? Multi-tasking all along? You probably need a hands-free bag, and a fiddle-free way to find your keys and phone. Large enough for all the essentials, but no bulk. The TEYA ipad Crossbody bag will be perfect for you!
From now on, there are two more Teya’s in my bag collection, wait – soon three – and I love them! Why? PRACTICAL. SIMPLE. It’s true, there are some beautiful bags out there, all for SPECIAL occasions. This one, let me be frank, this one is NOT. It’s the EVERYDAY one; the one you always grab first when you leave house. The one which allows you, in a blink of an eye, see if you’ve got your ipad, phone and keys. No fuss. Ok, maybe a pack off tissues. And that’s all. This is the thing I love most with the TEYA and this is why this bag will be used a lot.
