How to Pick the Best Black Friday Deals
Some people love Thanksgiving for the food and time with family. The turkey, stuffing, sweet potatoes, pumpkin pie and all things pumpkin spice. While it’s a beautiful time to give thanks for all your blessings, let’s just admit the best thing about Thanksgiving comes the day after. That glorious day when prices are slashed and we get to shovel leftovers in our mouths as we motor through websites for amazing deals. But, like eating over 5,975 calories in one sitting, it’s a tantalizing yet sometimes troubling task to uncover the very best deals out there.
Why You Should Consider a Nylon Backpack Tote
If you’re in the market for a new backpack or tote bag, you’ll soon find out that you’ve got some decisions to make. What style is right for your daily needs, and will it double well as a travel bag or weekender? What material will hold up to lots of wear, and rain or snow (which is especially important for those of us who have suffered through a wet commute to the office)?The answer to all these questions (and many more) is Holly & Tanager’s Pro Nylon Backpack Tote.

Three Things To Look for in a Commuter Tote Bag This National Handbag Day
At Holly & Tanager, we’d never miss the chance to celebrate National Handbag Day! Handbags are our passion and we never stop innovating and improving our collection.

An exciting next step for us as we continue to commit to providing our customers with beautifully and responsibly made bags.
Meet Your New Favorite Tiny Backpack and Tote Bag: The Protege and Commuter
Big news: we’ve added the Protege Nylon Mini Backpack and our always in-demand Commuter Nylon Tote to our recycled nylon line!
We pride ourselves on creating intelligently designed bags that allow for effortless organization and consumer responsibility. Our new recycled nylon
bags are lightweight, durable and dirt- and water-resistant. With the positive response our sustainable products have received from you all, we knew we had to bring back two of our most loved bags.
For a tiny backpack, the Protege Nylon Mini Backpack holds more than you might expect thanks to its sleek and intelligent design. Set your wallet aside and store your ID, credit cards and cash in the front zip-around pocket. Fit your iPad or small laptop inside with room to spare for other essential items. And keep valuables secure in the semi-hidden zipper pocket on the back of the bag. Comfortable, adjustable straps top this bag off, making the Protege Nylon Mini Backpack the perfect partner for travel, or even just exploring your own city.
By popular demand, the Commuter Nylon Tote is also back in action, with a slightly updated look we think you’ll love. It now has an updated vertically oriented main compartment that is exceptionally roomy and can hold a 15” laptop, in addition to all your other necessities. The inside of this nylon tote bag also features a zipper pocket to keep your valuables secure. From work-week to weekend, it’s the perfect catch-all, grab-all, tote-all bag - easy to keep clean, and looking sharp, in our recycled nylon.
We hope you enjoy these two additions to our recycled nylon line!

Our Worst Commute Catastrophes
Somedays you walk out the door and hit your stride immediately - your coffee is the perfect temperature to sip right away, the bus comes as soon as you step up to your stop, and the sun shines as cars politely stop for you to cross the street towards work.
The “Why” Behind Our Labor Day Promotion
Whether you’re trying to shop local, organic, or cruelty-free, a lot of us are familiar with the process of scanning labels or “About Us” pages to make sure the product or service we’re choosing fits our standards. In a world of endless choices, and 2-day shipping on most of them, it’s important to so many of us that we “put our money where our mouth is” and support businesses that align with our values.
We Owe It All To You
