Every now and then, I'm introduced to a company that instantly leaves an impact on me. Maybe they offer a really unique, simultaneously practical and beautiful product. Or maybe they have a mission or purpose that involves something bigger than profit. Or, if they're anything like SICK Bags, they're both.
Behind this amazing new label is Silvie Altschuler, an award-winning jewelry design and mother of two small children who could not find a diaper bag that looked good and fit her needs. She was also struck by heart wrenching stories from her husband, a pediatrician in an inner city emergency room. So she put her design skills to work to use fashion to educate moms about childhood diseases, and created SICK Bags.
Each bag features a sophisticated carry-all design crafted from vegan leather and manufactured in the Garment District of NYC. The outside of each bag is stylish and chic; the lining is playful, representing common childhood illnesses in a way that is lighthearted while still taking disease prevention and treatment seriously. For SICK's debut collection, Sylvie tapped illustrator Peter M. Clark to translate the symptoms of Streptoccocus, E. Coli, and Coxsackie into whimsical doodles. The final result is fantastic. I recently became the proud owner of this bag, and couldn't love it more. And the fact that they donate a portion of each sale to leading children's hospitals committed to preventing and finding cures for pediatric ailments only increased the love I feel for my new favorite accessory. (Oh - and because SICK Bags believes that funds should stay local, if a bag is bought in New York, the donation goes to a hospital in New York, etc. Pretty rad, right?)
As a big fan of this amazing little bag line, I'm absolutely thrilled that one of you is going to get to to own a SICK Bag of your very own, in the color and lining of your choice (valued at $165)!
