Funky Beach Bags

The bag – a simple sort of useful product (and probably the most underrated after the pocket!). Having been around for hundreds of years and have been used by both men and women. “Bags have been prevalent as far back as ancient Egypt. Many hieroglyphs depict males with bags tied around their waist. The Bible mentions pouches, especially Judas Iscariot, carrying one around, holding his personal items. In the 14th century, wary of pickpockets and thieves, many people used drawstring bags, in which to carry their money.” (Wikipedia: The Free Encyclopedia. Wikimedia Foundation, Inc. 22 July 2004. Web. 10 Aug. 2004.)


This most handy accessory has developed from being just a practical item for transporting goods to a must have fashion accessory that… well is still a practical item for transporting goods, but now they can be transported in style. From makeup, to sandwiches, clothing, even Chihuahua’s… Yes Paris Hilton we mean you!

It used to be fashionable bags would be the sole preserve of the fashion conscious lady but now the evolution of the bag has given us handbags, straw bags, paper bags, man bags, hand bags, bowling bags, clutch bags, bucket bags, duffel bags (to name only a few!) and that holiday favourite (essential) the beach bag.

Of all the bags out there the one type holiday lovers will always have is the beach bag… why? A certain well known car manufacturer released an advert in which a well muscled beachgoer only had his trunks in which to keep items. Luckily he didn’t need a key for his car though he could have solved that whole problem with any of the funky beach bags from The Stripes Company collections. Just imagine trying to carry your towel, sun-cream, purse, wallet, flip-flops or other beach essential without one, it would be difficult.


Here at the Stripes Company we believe as well as being practical you can also be stylish so our collections of beach bags are styled to emphasise that. Our funky beach bags will turn heads while also allowing you to carry whatever you need for your day out at the beach.
