As kids, you grew up singing about having the whole world in your hands. As adults, the world has transitioned into a fairly hands-free kind of place. You can call a friend, play a song, or even park a car without depending on your digits. There are quite a handful of things more important than juggling stuff for palm priority.
Mom knows this, which is why she wears a fanny pack on our walks. She keeps her hands available to pet me, to easily access treats, and to open dog park gates without the hassle of a tassel or the strife of a strap. Although her pack is functional, it isn’t the most fashionable. Combining the two is, hands down, the ultimate accessory ambition.
MANDRN was born on a sunny day in Bali when founder, Kelly Kong, needed to replace her broken fanny pack and couldn’t find an option that was both chic and high quality. With her primary mode of transportation being a motorbike, the fanny pack is essential for safely toting around your belongings. As a last resort Kong visited a family-owned leather shop on her street to inquire about a custom request. From this visit, a partnership made of craft and style was formed.
Each bag is handmade by Balinese artisans, promoting fair trade and ethical production. Our favorite, the Woven Remy, is stunning in either black or sand with its basket weave design. This style can effortlessly hop off the bike and dazzle in the bar, while the neutral shade boasts year-round allure. For a firm grasp on understated glamour, keep MANDRN close to the chest.
