There's no better opportunity for you to showcase your style (and your new school bag) than on the first day of school. Summer break's just gone and while that may be a bummer for some, it's also the beginning of another school year, which means getting to see your friends again after the long break! Make sure that you're heading back to school in style with some of these locally made bags we've scouted just for you!

Abre Linea

Abre Linea is a social enterprise founded by three friends as a response to the destruction Typhoon Haiyan brought to Samar and Leyte. Their bags are all handcrafted by artisans and made with local fibers such as ticog and buri. Not only that, but their proceeds go towards rebuilding the communites ravaged by the calamity. By buying their bags, not only are you going to get a great piece to go with your outfit, you'll also be helping people in need! What could be better?

Wear and Bare

Wear and Bare is a lifestyle brand selling caps (check out their suede millennial pink caps!), swimsuits, and of course, bags. Their backpacks come in a variety of cute colors from salmon pink to (pepper)mint green. Super Instagram worthy!

The Lost Nomad

Inspired by wanderlust, The Lost Nomad's bags are spacious and durable. And while they may make you miss those summer months when you weren't in school, at least now you have a bag that can go great in the classroom and on the beach.

Katre

Katre specializes in selling leather bags, so while some of them may be a little pricey, you can bet that they're worth the investment!

Fino Leatherware

Fino Leatherware is another local store specializing in leather bags. Their products come in lots of fun, vibrant colors that you can mix and match with whatever you want!

What bag are you carrying on your first day back to school?
