Who doesn't love great luggage? We've all got our personal favorites, but I am always on the lookout for more great bags. I've recently found a fantastic resource for hundreds of luggage brands (including their own line), Kolobags. We've interviewed the co-founder of Kolobags, Elaine Sanders, here.



I received for review a VERY cool bag from Kolobags, the Mellow World Flossy Rolling Duffle. Out of the thousands of bags available at Kolobags, why this one? Well, I fell in love with it. Actually, I fell in love with the WHOLE Mellow World Line of bags at Kolobags. They are unique and beautiful - with incredible fabrics and design, a variety of sizes (laptop case, rolling laptop bag, etc.), and are both fashionable and sturdy. Mellow world is known for its vintage look, with woven fabrics and embroidered and beaded detailing.






This bag, my fabulous red Mellow World Flossy Rolling Duffle, is made from a beautifully woven tapestry fabric, with colorful flowers. It's 22"x14"x10" - perfectly sized to fit into the overhead bin. Inside, there is plenty of room and one zippered pocket. There's also a zippered pocket on the outside. The leather handles are well-formed, with a snap to hold them together. The telescoping handle is accessed from a leather zip compartment, and extends to two lengths, the longest being 22 inches. Our 8 year old daughter has already tried the lower length, rolling the bag around the house, but the longest length is perfect for me, although a little short for my husband. Then again, this is a bag for women - the shape of the bag, colors, and flowers are very feminine, and remind me of vintage travel. There's  a matching rolling laptop tote, although I did not see a matching laptop sleeve (I guess there can be too much of a good thing).



Nothing like wrapping your technology in such beautiful fabrics, reminding you of exploring the world, in another time. This bag is chock-full of possibilities. Travel on the Orient Express, anyone?
