How We Carry Tukula & A Giveaway


****Congrats to the giveaway winner Janelle from LeeMaeMarie!!*****

Being the founder of tukula I have received (or taken from inventory) a lot of bags.
After using each bag on a daily basis I feel like they all have very different uses so I thought I would share my thoughts on how each bag could be best used...




If you're like me and don't use a big bag for day to day use the Shami Bag is a good fit for you! I use this one most days to hold my wallet, keys, chap-stick, a pen and post-its...and it's perfect. I normally see it used as a shoulder bag but I wear mine cross-body more often. I like wearing it cross-body because I'm shorter and the bottom of most cross body bags end up hitting my knee but the shami doesn't.















The sling bag is an all time favorite amongst tourists in uganda and I have even seen that this style is even popular amongst tourists in asia as well. Living on the east coast it's easy for us to do day trips to cities like DC, NYC, and Philly and this bag is perfect for long days out. It's best worn as a cross-body bag as well and can usually fit all of the daily necessities as well as a light jacket or book.

















The tote bag has become an all-time favorite of mine. We spent a few days in Cape-May New Jersey at the beach and it was the perfect bag for the trip! With the weather being so unpredictable theses days here in PA it's been great for packing sunscreen, a sweater, a bottle of water, and umbrella along with all the daily necessities. Most larger bags have thicker fabric or are lined with foam but the tote bags has a light weight cotton fabric that makes it not feel bulky even when you're carrying a lot.











I feel like most women have a favorite bag and I love hearing about what makes them their favorite bag. So as a special spring treat I'm going to be giving away my favorite bag, the new tote bag.

  1. I LOVE the print on the sling bag & it's perfect for outings where I don't have to worry about keeping my purse on my shoulder. Plus there's more room with tossing things inside the bag like sunglasses, purchases, water bottle, etc.

  2. I love the sling bag because as a mama of three littles, my hands are full and my brain is too busy to worry about where my purse is... across body bags are the ONLY way to go for me! :D

  15. My favorite bag is a huge day bag that doubles as a diaper bag / yarn bag / everything bag, it's a cross body so I usually wear it with the strap pulled tight so the bag actually fits more in my back like a road bike bag would. Love the new stuff auntie, keep it up!

  16. I love the tote bag, after getting a puppy I have realized that the bigger the bag the better! I need to carry around treats, bags, and a leash most times which I never had to before.

  17. John brought me home a bag similar to the sling bag and its perfect for the gym, super easy and super cute! But for day to day use I love the size of the shami bag.. I can't handle too much stuff or else I can't find anything, less is more!
