Carry one bag with you on your shopping trip. Bring one bag with you to the pool or gym. Take one bag to school. Take the incredibly accommodating Huggy Bag.

Introducing the newest, coolest example of simplicity: the expanding elastic carryall.

The world is full of bags, and most of them end up in landfills or the ocean. You only need one, and it should be The Huggy Bag. Hip design so sleek it just naturally fits into your look. Bold colors so classically cool, you’ll instantly be attached. But most of all, this little bag expands to carry virtually anything you’d want to take out of a store or into a school.

The Huggy Bag - It's not just a bag, It’s a declaration of simplicity

• The Huggy Bag is made on a no non-sense design for durability, but just so happens to look amazing.

• Nylon straps provide strength and evoke the timeless cool of the classic gym look.

• Incredibly elastic spandex fabric stretches to swallow up virtually any load, and “hugs” it tight.

• Folds up neatly to fit in your pocket, so you don’t forget it like the other five reusable bags you’re always forgetting to use.

• Carries 32 pounds with ease, that’s a frozen turkey and a watermelon, no problem.

• Sleek and sexy

• A family project from beautiful San Jose, California

• Makes your life simpler

• Makes you look cool

The Huggy Bag Story

I always thought design was simple, or should be. When my aunt told me about her idea to make a super carry-all that would look cool, I knew a good idea when I heard it and I stole it. I also knew the trick would be to make it simple and keep it simple. If we could do that, I knew success would be simple. I also knew that as a mother of two girls in diapers, I needed to reach out for funding and get this project off the ground fast and clean. Just like the elegant simplicity of the bag itself, this business is based on the easy production of a high quality product that fulfills real needs and looks damn good doing it. With your support you will be launching a great idea so obvious that all there is left to do is ask for your support and start making bags.

Risks and challenges

You know that starting up a new product is challenging, but we are relying on two great strengths: the clear power of a simply wonderful and wonderfully simple product, and experienced partners who have helped us source and plan every step of the way. We have assembled a crack team of experienced players committed to seeing this project through and eager to see the rewards of our shared success. We are completely prepared, as of this moment I am writing to surpass what I feel is a modest, but safe goal, and begin filling truly large orders. The real challenge is to connect with you, the Kickstarter Community. I hope you can see what we see, a great project, a great product, and the future it has.
