About

Thanks for checking out Sash Bag's third Kickstarter campaign, Sash Bag 3.0: Reversible Sash Bags! If you're new to Sash, get ready to fall madly in love. Sash Bags are literally life changing. What is it that makes a Sash so special? It's the way the bag is designed ergonomically to organize all of your daily necessities without weighing you down. You know those moments when you really don't want to carry a purse, but you still magically want all your stuff handy? That's where Sash Bags come in. Check it out...


You have helped us bring two projects to life already. The first was for a cloth version of the Sash Bag. The second was for an expandable line of Sash Bags. This campaign is all about the color!! Sash Bag 3.0 has the following features:

REVERSIBLE: It's a reversible design so you can choose your front color and back color and wear them interchangeably. You are essentially getting two bags in one!!

LARGER: The size is 3/4 of an inch wider. So it's right in between the Classic and Extra size (from our last campaign) to give you just a smidge of extra wiggle room!

CONVENIENT: The exterior pockets on front and back are open slip pockets to make the bag truly reversible.

SECURE: The strap was redesigned to remove the D-ring and snap into itself, proving extra security and eliminating folds that kept the bags reversibility limited.

Now the fun part!!

Wanna see your color options? We are starting with the basics once we raise our minimum of $39,000 and then unlocking colors along the way with a series of stretch goals! Check out our goals and help us unlock each level by pledging and sharing the campaign with your friends! Here are the goals: 



Which colors are your favorites? We'd love to hear. We sent out surveys earlier this year to see what colors y'all were most interested in and excited about. That's how we landed on these pallets. We also try to keep in mind that the colors need to be versatile. Having a reversible bag makes the versatility easier since you can have two colors in one and just flip it to mix it up depending on what you're wearing! 

There are a total of 12 colors, which makes 144 different combination options to mix and match. These are just some ideas of our favorites. And can we please talk about the leather distressing? In this campaign, all of our leather is treated with a marbling effect to give it that dimension and depth that was so popular in the calico and honey of the previous campaign.

Got your bags picked out? We can't wait to hear what you are going to create! Eeek!! 

We also added some cute accessories to the campaign that will make organizing your Sash bag even easier. We will announce more colors as the campaign grows, but here's a snapshot of what the accessories will be, including a round coin case, a sunglasses case, and a luggage tag, all made from genuine leather:

That's right! Organizing your Sash just got even better. You can add an accessories set (of three items) to your pledge for $45. 

Now meet the team that is going to make it all happen!

Gotta love the Sash Team!! Our customer service scores are off the charts, thanks to these hard working, fun, smart, amazing crew. They're what good companies are made of. Seriously, each of these beautiful souls shows up to work every day with a can-do attitude, a genuine passion for making customers happy, and that do-whatever-it-takes effort to make sure things are running smoothly. Thanks, Sash Team!!

Hey, it's not every day that you are named one of San Diego's People of the Year. Our Chief Bag Lady, Nichole MacDonald, has shaken things up in the entrepreneur community in San Diego. She has grown the Sash business from scratch, throwing conventional wisdom out the window and creating a strategy all her own, driven by authenticity and building community. But she's not just the face of Sash. She is the designer, the CEO, and fearless leader of the Sash Sisterhood.

We love, love, LOVE our customers and can't emphasize enough that we WOULD NOT HAVE A BUSINESS WITHOUT THEM. That's why they are number one, always. Our philosophy is to treat each customer the way we would treat our friends, because we genuinely view our customers as friends and are infinitely grateful for the support.

As a little "Thank You", we are offering a free shirt to the first 500 backers on this campaign!

Ready to join the Sash Squad? Here's the down low. First, pick your reward level. Below is an estimated timeline of delivery. Once the campaign ends in September, give us a couple of weeks to get the surveys built. That'll give you time to decide what you want, what you really, really want. You'll have another week or so to submit your choices. We'll start production in October, and we're estimating that we'll start delivering bags in April, 2020. 

Disclaimer of the century: We do not know how many bags we will sell in this campaign. Our last campaign was over 10,000 bags and wound up taking about a year to get the last stragglers of bags delivered. It was also a much more complicated campaign (which we will never, ever do again -- phew!). But we can reasonably estimate that up to 3,000-4,000 bags can be delivered around April 2020 and if it goes over that, it might take longer. We say might because this production is expected to be much smoother, so we don't anticipate the same delays. BUT WHO KNOWS?? 🤣Gotta put all the disclaimers in there about the timeline. Okay, we're done now. Here's a snapshot:

We are always here to answer any questions you have. We look forward to hearing from you and being on this adventure together!! xoxo

Risks and challenges

We've been in business for almost seven years and have already delivered bags for two separate Kickstarter campaigns successfully. We're not worried about much in this department and you shouldn't be either. :-)

Long-lasting design

Our product is hand-crafted by skilled professionals and leather technicians. Yeah, that's a real career! A leather technician... Have you even heard of that? We literally scoured the globe to find the best of the best to make sure our bags are made to last so that it doesn't become just another thing to add to your pile of "stuff", but something that you will wear day after day after day. It also comes with a one-year warranty to make sure that you are supported in keeping it in good shape.

Reusability and recyclability

Occasionally stuff happens and we do wind up with bags that have defects. In this case, we repurpose the leather into accessories that we sell on our live sales platform. Our founder's mom actually makes most of them herself at home, so there is no additional carbon footprint involved in these projects. Pretty groovy, eh?

Sustainable materials

Our leather is 100% sourced from the meat industry in India. That's why we make our bags out of lambskin. Lamb is the main meat consumed in India and our factory founder actually works directly on all the phases of the supply chain to make sure the materials are properly prepped for ultimate use of the entire animal so nothing goes to waste. We eliminated non-leather in this campaign to reduce our use of man-made materials that are toxic to the environment.
