Let customers speak for us
The multiple pockets on the exterior make it easy to drop in my cell phone and keys as I step out of the car, which I do multiple times a day. In both the professional setting as well as every day, I feel confident and put together with my Carry Courage bag.
I showed a house today and when I went in I hung my ADVOCATE bag in the entry way. When we were done with the showing my client was saying she didn't like the house but then she saw the bag and said... "Oh, but I love this bag!!". She didn't know it was mine! Needless to say I will be sending her to Carry Courage.
The wristlet is not only beautifully made, it is the perfect size for carrying essentials including my phone! I’ve enjoyed it on our Christmas travels as it makes the perfect wallet for my backpack!
I also purchased two more for Christmas gifts!!
It's not the question of whether to buy this bag or not...it's which one do I choose? I can't express how difficult it was to finally settle on the best one for me, but I did end up selecting the walnut brown color. I love the adjustable straps and the way this bag hangs beautifully as it is worn. The outer pocket is perfect for keeping my cell phone accessible and there is no comparison between this handmade bag and something mass produced. It's classy, looks professional, and fits my supplies perfectly both during leisure hours and when I visit clients.
My only regret is I didn't order this sooner. I have been admiring this bag for over a year and asked to have it slightly modified so it could be worn as a cross body bag. Not only was the custom solution an option, but the order was completed quickly! It's soft, lightweight (I mean really light) and fits my lifestyle so well. It holds my wallet, and separates my smaller items with the two large pockets inside. The more I use it, the softer the cork seems to feel! I love this bag!!!
I was looking for an eco-friendly alternative to a wristlet/wallet I had years ago. I was pleasantly surprised by how lightweight the Giver turned out to be. The color (Rain) is such a calming shade of blueish-grey. It is just what I was looking for in terms of versatility and style. I do wish the interior pockets were horizontal vs vertical, but it works just the same. My daughter is already asking for one of her own.
I am completely in love with my new bags. I was looking for an eco-friendly toiletry bag for an upcoming trip and came across Carry Courage. After carting the Adventurer, the Rule Breaker flashed across my screen and I knew it would make a great cosmetic bag. My brushes, foundation powder, blush, eye shadow, mascara and lip gloss fit comfortably inside this little pouch. It takes up minimal counter space, is beautifully crafted and so easy to grab and go. Thrilled that I found you!
I was looking for a bag a little larger than the one I’d been using, and came across Carry Courage while researching more sustainable purse options. The Overcomer is a good size for a larger bag, and it looks and feels so well-made — definitely better than some plastic-feeling leather alternatives. The magnetic closure holds really well, and I like the clever outer pocket on the side. It’s a little bit of a splurge for me, but totally worth it, especially to support a small business that values ethical and sustainable practices. I’ll definitely keep the brand in mind next time I’m in the market for a bag or purse!
I love this small bag, perfect for farmers market or any where you want to be hands-free, without the bulk of a huge purse. Fits all the essentials - keys, phone, wallet, sunglass case, and a mask!
What a fun bag. Roomie, unique and its awesome to be able to support women in Tibet with my purchase.
I was looking for a case for my laptop so I asked Marisa if she could make this one a little bigger and she happily obliged. It also fits the charger and mouse so it all stays together. I feel so stylish when traveling with my Inventor bag!
I bought the Adventurer cosmetic bag and travelled with it for the first time. Absolutely LOVE it! So much room and the organizing pockets inside keep everything tidy. Plenty of room for makeup and skin care and more! The cork is beautiful and the craftsmanship is superior. Can't wait to buy more bags from Carry Courage!
I love it! My husband is a big fan too because it doesn’t look like a bomb went off in our bathroom for a change, haha. I’m actually keeping my cosmetics inside their bag for once.
This bag is also gorgeous, and I would have no issues using it as a clutch. It’s really a fantastic piece!
