Side By Side: The Professional vs. The Confidante

At Holly & Tanager, we know that choosing an everyday bag is no small task. Committing to carrying an accessory every day (!) means finding something that fits all of your fashion and function qualifications and fits seamlessly into your life. We design our bags to do just that - but then how do you choose which Holy & Tanager bag best fits your style and needs?

We've outlined a few key details of our two best selling bags, our Professional Backpack and Confidante Tote, to give you a side-by-side comparison and help make the decision easy. 


Our Confidante tote is for the gal-on-the-go who wants to be able to swing her bag over her shoulder and get moving. With the perfect handle drop to easily carry on your should or in the crook of your arm, the Confidante offers the ease of a tote with inner organization that prevents the dis-organization that so often comes with this style of bag. Two separate compartments, a sleeve that fits up to a 17" computer and a center zipper pocket let you organize your items just how you like them. Three slip pockets let you keep your most grabbed items right within reach. And, of course, or signature buttery soft leather and brass hardware give this bag a luxurious, yet durable, feel.

Our Professional Backpack is great for those that like to keep their hands free and their items organized. A separate top and bottom compartment allow you to store your less grabbed items (change of shoes, charging cords) in the bottom, while your most needed items like phone and wallet rest within easy reach in the top compartment. Two sleeves, one inside the bag and one on the exterior, fit up to a 15" laptop with the outer sleeve converting from a sleeve to a suite case strap with just the pull of a zipper near the bottom of the bag. This bag is ideal for traveling in style and comes in our sturdy, armored leather as well if you're hard on your bags.
