Rock Flower Paper Carryall {Holiday Gift Idea}

Rock Flower Paper Carryall
By Contributor Kristen LaValley

Rock Flower Paper is a San Francisco Bay area based company that transforms proprietary art and design into sophisticated, strong, and colorful products. Their products are high quality, well priced, and tasteful. They carry everything from art placemats, to scarves, iphone covers, kitchen towels, and canvas totes.

When I was given the opportunity to review this item, at first I thought, “Oh cool! A gorgeous tote bag. Sweet.” But then I started reading about the company and I didn’t just fall in love with their beautiful (and budget friendly!) products, but also the mission and passion that the owners put into what they do. When you purchase an item from Rock Flower Paper, you’re buying a product that was inspired by their travels and made with the highest quality materials available.

When I opened my package, (don’t think I’m crazy yet) I took a big, deep breath and was instantly transported back to India. It was wonderful. I traveled to India in 2010 and haven’t been around any smells that were even remotely close to the sensory overload I experienced there. But this canvas tote… I was so excited. I may have sniffed it. A lot. (Ok so maybe I’m a little crazy.) I just have such a deep love for the country and the look, feel, and yes, the smell, of the tote transported me back to the streets of Kolkata and brought back so many wonderful memories. Naturally, when I saw that it was made in India and that the majority of their designs were inspired by things they saw in the markets of that amazing country, I was stoked. Rock Flower Paper gained a passionate supporter in me!

The Torana Chevron Navy Carryall is absolutely beautiful. It’s sturdy and spacious, with a zippered pocket on the inside, and extra storage pockets on the outside. I love that the fabric is so sturdy because I’ve been using this bag for everything and it’s been amazing. I used it on Thanksgiving to transport my share of the goodies, along with diapers, changes of clothes for both the boys, and a couple of toys. I’ve used it to carry massive amounts of groceries, my laptop, a picnic lunch for 5, and right now I’m using it to keep all my half finished sewing projects off the floor. I LOVE it.

You really can’t beat the price for such a huge and high quality tote.  It’s perfect for busy moms who just need to throw everything in a bag and go. It really does “carry all” and for $35.95, it’s a steal. I’m so glad I’ve found this company and I will definitely be ordering from them in the future. Visit their website and browse their beautiful and amazingly priced items! I know you’ll be a fan. And don’t be ashamed of sniffing your treasures when they arrive. They really do smell amazingly exotic!
