Handsome bag 俊記


With Billy Potts from Handsome Bag

Remember I blogged about the eco-friendly tote bag made from salvaged taxi seats in Hong Kong a while ago and wanted to get one when I traveled to Hong Kong? Yep, that’s right, I made my 2nd visit to Hong Kong early this month to fulfill my “mission” – getting my “baby” back to SF!

World is not as big as we think, it’s actually a small place where people are bumping into each other… On the first day of my arrival in HK, my friend Jay surprised me with a great news that he actually was a friend of Billy Potts, one of the founders of Handsome Bag Company and we were going to meet him up later. Wow, what a small world + what an awesome coincidence! 🙂

Long story short, I got my Helen Tote from Handsome Bag at $850 HKD ($110 USD) and I got both of Billy and Joseph signed on my bag.

Sorry guys, I need to make some corrections here and my apology goes out to both my audiences and Handsome Bag.

The tote I purchased from Handsome Bag WAS NOT a Helen Tote, it’s actually Melanie Messenger bag, a new model which haven’t been released widely yet or put on the site, according to Billy, and I was lucky enough to be the second person to own one. 🙂 Sorry about the confusion!

I love the tote! The bag itself is just awesome, not only is it a stylish tote for everyday use, it fits my Macbook Pro 15″ and A4 sketch book easily. I am also a fan of their two big side pockets sitting on inside of the bag which make the large sized tote more organized. By the way, the bag does not smell like a cab at all. :p

Billy + Joseph, thanks for your awesome idea and congrats on your recent Perspective Magazine 40 Under 40 Award.
