I love going to my local co-op, Rawfully Organic! I also love colorful bags! I go every Saturday and get an amazing box of fresh, organic produce and lots of hugs! So on Saturday I went to go pick up my box and as I was checking out I noticed these knitted bags hanging up for sale. I knew I wanted one because they had to be Vegan Fashion friendly, SO colorful, probably handmade and I want anything I can get my hands on at the Co-Op.
Come to find out, one of the volunteers Cheryl Morgan makes these colorful bags out of 100% cotton. I was excited to get to talk to her personally about the bag, what they were made out of and learn more about her journey to the co-op and making the bags. So I bought one of course!
I say bag because they are so versatile. They are really stretchy and durable so you can use them for anything. When talking with Cheryl, I learned about her journey to R.O.C. and more. Cheryl has a husband and a teenager who seem to “eat her out of house and home” as she would say. She originally was a member of CSA, which was on organization that would deliver organic produce to her door step. When they closed their doors she was forced to shop at Whole Foods and realized it was a little more expensive than what CSA had been providing her. She researched the internet and found Rawfully Organic about 2 years ago. She loves volunteering there and found a new affordable way to keep her family and herself full of healthy, yummy foods.
Cheryl loves to knit! “There is a limit to how many scarves one can wear. Once I figured out how to make the bags, they became a very fun project because of the unlimited colors and patterns, and I do like to play with colors. Kristina (with R.O.C.) liked them as well, and suggested I make some for the co-op. People started using them to put their extra produce from the co-op in the bags. I then started to learn how others were using these colorful bags. Some used them as a purse, beach bag and even putting toys in them. I honestly think I sold three dozen of the bags last summer!”
She is only making the one size bag right now, and they are $20.00. “However, I am not averse to people ordering a larger bag, which will sell for $30.00” She also told me, “the larger bags could fit everything but the kitchens sink them”. Cheryl sells them at the co-op but I have encouraged her to go further and start selling them anywhere she can! Right now you can contact her for more information or to order a bag(s) through her Facebook Page at https://www.facebook.com/CheckTheBottomOfTheBag or e-mail her at email@example.com .
I love my bag! It’s blue, yellow and white. It’s super stretchy and can hold an amazing amount of items. If you are going to use it as a purse I would suggest keeping the smaller items like lipstick or nail file in a little bag so it doesn’t slip through one of the knitted holes. Overall, I really like it because it’s colorful and comfy to carry around. If you decide to purchase one from her, I would love the review feedback on the post.
