I have started receiving items to review for my podcast and I also wanted to add them here on my blog as well. That way I can add pictures here and my podcast page. :) So, in the future you will see Review posts that will contain items that I am also reviewing for my podcast.The first item is the Namaste Zuma bag. I must admit this is my first Namaste item ever. I've heard a lot of great things about the company and I've seen many pictures of the bags on other sites and blogs. I must admit they are nothing compared to actually seeing the bags in person. My bag arrived about 3-4 weeks ago and I wanted to really spend some time with it before I did a proper review. The first thing that comes to mind about my Zuma bag is that I love it!! I use it as my every day purse.Since I carry knitting with me at all times, this purse is perfect. It's got a wide mouth and lots of room to carry many things. While I was reading the twilight series, which everyone knows these books are huge!! I was able to carry the book, my dad's vest I was knitting, and my purse things all in one bag!
I also like how it has 2 magnets so if I just need it to snap closed quickly they help me out. The front pocket is perfect for your keys, phone, ipod, and wallet, that is if you have a small wallet. My wallet is a bit bigger so I throw it in to the center compartment. The center has some nice pockets to keep you organizes and plenty of room as I've said. There is also a nice zipper pocket on the back of the bag.
The material used for the bag is PVC-free, animal-friendly faux leather. I think it's great because it seems to hold up to a bit of wear and tear. I just know that I have to keep it away from my leather loving Lab. :) He hasn't shown interest in eating it yet but I think it I leave a chocolate bar or something sweet in my bag...it's over. :)
The Zuma bag comes in the following colors: Charcoal, Eggplant, Hollywood Pink, Lime, Olive, Peacock, Saddle, Turquoise. My bag is Peacock.
I give this bag a thumbs WAY up! For me it's easy to carry and keeps everything organized and easy for me to find. I will be reviewing it as well in the next episode of Barknknit Podcast so feel free to listen in to hear more about this bag.
Well..I hope you have enjoyed my review of the Namaste Zuma bag. One last quick note...the owners of the company are dog people. How can you go wrong investing in a company owned by dog people. :) We love that here in the Barknknit house.
