About this project
We are Freshly Picked, a small startup in Utah founded by Susan Petersen, a mom who was frustrated by the lack of shoes that would stay on her baby’s feet. This inspired Susan to create our signature moccasins, which have disrupted the baby shoe industry, taken the internet by storm, and have become favorites of mothers across the globe.
We’re now looking to do the same for another one of the biggest pain points for mothers: diaper bags. We’re excited to continue our legacy of improving the lives of mothers with our innovative new products!
A perfect balance of style and function. Designed for moms by moms!
We conducted focus groups across the US and identified what moms really want in a diaper bag: large capacity, ease of use, durability, and style. We’ve addressed each of these areas to create the perfect diaper bag that is both functional and beautiful.
- Wearable 3 ways: backpack, cross-body, or purse
- 100% wipeable interior and exterior
- Magnetic front flap for easy close without zipping
- Ten pockets and spacious central space for large items
- Made with premium quality materials and luxe hardware
- Metal feet on bottom so bag never touches the ground
The new Freshly Picked bag doesn't look like your typical old-fashioned diaper bag. There aren't any obnoxious prints, sagging pockets, or thick middle-school backpack straps. Instead, it's made of premium vegan leather with luxe hardware and can be worn 3 ways: backpack, purse and cross body!
- Top flap magnetic closure for easy-access and closure
- Padded bottom and metal feet keep bag upright
- Expandable sides for increased capacity, with wide opening for easy access
- 4 exterior pockets, including 2 side pockets that can accommodate up to a 32 oz beverage!
- Durable, premium-quality YKK zippers with custom tassel
- Custom matte gold hardware
- Dual purpose back exterior pocket with magnetic clasp that hides backpack straps when they aren't in use
The large capacity interior of the Freshly Picked diaper bag is lined with 6 spacious pockets to fit numerous storage needs including a padded electronics sleeve, secure zip pockets for mom, and elastic pockets that can expand to keep bottles and other bulky items secure. Plus, the interior is lined with wipeable and spill-resistant nylon- a must have for mom's.
- Spacious central space for large items
- Padded electronics sleeve with magnetic closure that can fit up to 13’’ laptop and most tablets
- Expandable sides for increased capacity
- Inner zip pocket keeps small items secure
- Wide opening for easy placement and removal of items
- Premium wipeable and spill-resistant interior lining
Made of premium vegan leather with a nylon interior lining, the diaper bag is spill-resistant and can simply be wiped clean.
Four matte gold metal feet on the bottom of the bag keep it from ever touching the floor, which means less germs and more stability.
With a clean, timeless design made only the highest quality materials, the diaper bag by Freshly Picked will last through multiple babes and beyond. It truly can be your forever bag!
Ease of Use
The diaper bag has convertible straps to carry all the ways: cross-body for security, backpack for hands-free use, purse for easy on and off, and a top handle for grabbing quickly.
The top flap magnetic closure allows quick access to the interior and means you don't have to unzip the bag every time you open it. Plus, the wide opening makes it easy to place and remove items, even with one hand!
The padded base and structure of the bag keeps it upright--the bag will not fall over when it is set down.
The new Freshly Picked diaper bag was created to work for today's parents. Its not your mom's old-fashioned diaper bag! Instead its modern design features sleek lines, luxe vegan leather for durability and for a lighter weight bag, and custom matte gold hardware. No obnoxious prints, sagging pockets or thick middle-school backpack straps here!
The diaper bag features a large central interior space lined with 6 interior pockets and an additional 4 exterior pockets.
The sides feature metal snaps that be opened to expand the bag for increased capacity, or kept snapped for a thinner, more purse-like silhouette.
It can comfortably carry all the items that moms need to transport, including:

With the support of moms across the United States, we have a long legacy of bringing baby products to market that make mothers lives easier. However, this is a completely new category for us and we need your feedback and help to fund this next step for Freshly Picked!
Freshly Picked's CEO Susan Petersen, is a mom who was frustrated by the lack of well-designed shoes that would stay on her baby’s feet. Susan created our signature moccasins, which are hand-made with premium quality leather and an innovative easy-on elastic opening that keeps them securely on little feet.
Freshly Picked moccasins began to gather attention from celebrities and online so Susan took her innovation to Shark Tank. Her genius design was recognized by Mark Cuban, who called them “the greatest shoes” he had ever seen.
After Shark Tank, Freshly Picked grew phenomenally taking both the baby industry and social media by storm. Thanks to Susan’s innovative design Freshly Picked not only created a new category of soft sole moccasins, but gained the loyal support of mothers around the world.
Armed with another amazing design and the support of awesome backers on Kickstarter, we’re excited to create a diaper bag that is not only stylish but also functional for modern parents.
