Merin Designs + Swoop Bags Collaboration

April 26, 2016

Sarah and Kea met at the University of Washington. Later in life, they each found love, marriage, and a baby carriage (you know the story)… Years later, and five kids between their two families, the plot took a turn…

Sarah, having two Lego loving boys, found that her grandmother’s Lego bag (made for her brother 30 years prior) was a Lego cleanup dream. However, there were some design dilemmas in that bag that ended up sparking her idea for Swoop. She redesigned her grandmother’s original bag to create a modern, streamlined version in bold, bright colors, which makes Lego cleanup simple, easy, and fun. Made from high quality 100% cotton canvas and durable nylon cord, Swoops are designed to last. 

For Kea, schlepping gear (towels, goggles, change of clothes, books, keys, cell phone, and gold fish crackers) for three young screamers in a city known for too much water was just too difficult. Kea’s solution? The Merin bag… a big, colorful, stylish, canvas bag that keeps everything organized and dry, with a waterproof fabric bottom, waterproof interior pockets, and detachable cross-body strap that can hook into two different positions, cross-body or sling-back.

Both Merin + Swoop Bags come in bright, vibrant colors, and are Made with LOVE in the USA. We both believe in supporting our local, US economy and recognize that this costs more but in return gives you a much better product.
