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.
Revamp Your Fall Wardrobe With Our Fall and Winter Color Bags: Forest and Berry
Fall is here and well under way, with changing trees and cooler days. And with the season change, we are extremely excited to introduce our Fall and Winter colors to our recycled nylon handbag line: forest and berry, available in our Companion Nylon Crossbody Clutch, Commuter Nylon Tote Bag and Insider Nylon Wallet.
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. In fact, earlier this year we introduced our sustainable handbag line made from recycled, water- and dirt-resistant nylon. 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!
A Unique Ability…To Accumulate Things
At Holly & Tanager, we are women making bags for other women. When taking stock of how women use their handbags, we’ve made some interesting observations. One that has really stuck out to us is our unique ability to accumulate things throughout the day. We’re guilty of it ourselves, but can't seem to pin down exactly how it happens. But, without fail, we always seem to come home with more in our hands than we left the house with.
Women With Vision
Two weeks ago, the Holly & Tanager team had the pleasure of hosting a lunch for a group of truly amazing female leaders from around the Chicago area. Though we had hoped for a great view, because we hosted these lovely ladies at the top of the John Hancock, one of Chicago's most recognizable buildings, we were greeted with rain and clouds. Nevertheless, the atmosphere in the room could not have been brighter, with the purpose of our lunch being to spark a conversation about what it means to be "women with vision".

For our founder and CEO, Lindsay Lingle, there was a simple answer: “We saw a gap and had the idea for a better solution than what we had encountered.”
