Thank you

After seeing Mochila pop up in my fb news feed I thought I'd have a look and I liked what I saw. A few days prior I was given cash for my birthday and I didn't want to use it on just anything, this was my opportunity to get myself a beautiful Bag which was shipped out super fast and boy isn't she a beauty. With more than enough room for my big purse, a nappy, some wipes and bubs water bottle off we went to the shops where it hung perfectly over the shopping trolley handle and even accommodated my little ones Dinkum Dolly. I'm in love and will be sharing this awesome brand with all my girlfriends.

Goldilocks left her bag behind…

Vibrant and ethereal with a dash of mystery are involved when getting a Mochila bag. Red with a dash of black and earthy tones in a geometric design of the ages. It’s like wearing your own museum piece of a bag - handmade with ancient patterns with a modern twist- that’s not to big for a day out or small that everything you need doesn’t fit…it’s just right - a Goldilocks bag.

My collection

I am thrilled to discuss my experiences with Mochila and the wonderful bags they create. I have so far purchased nine bags with an eye on collecting more. My first bag caught my daughter’s attention and her bag then caught the attention of her daughters and as a result they have made wonderful gifts for a number of my family members with designs to suit everyone. The attention to detail is breathtaking and the colours used are vibrant and well thought out. You can tell a lot of love goes into their creation. My bags arrived promptly and nicely packaged and so I have no concerns recommending the Mochila brand. I will be adding more to my collection soon.
