" I have been using my TMN travel bag for a month now and I just love it. It’s as if Stacey read my mind when she designed this. It’s a bag for people that really don’t like to carry a lot of stuff, but need to keep a few essentials like ID, driving licence, phone cash and keys handy when you leave the house. I actually use it as a belt, threading the strap through some of the the loops of my jeans or trousers. When travel is possible again it will be perfect for keeping things safe and close to my body and will be great for bus stations, airports and busy markets etc. Finally, did I mention how beautifully it is designed and constructed? The leather is supple yet strong and the stitching is just first class. Thanks Stacey and TMN, it’s a work of art.”
