A Look into the Allegro Bag

Allegro Grounds burlap bag - Lina and Vi - exterior side 1

I'm excited to announce that our newest Grounds bag is now ready and available in our Etsy shop here! Today I'm sharing a short tour around this beautiful new burlap bag to give you a feel for the features and amount of detail that went into this new design.

First, it's hard to not notice the colorful burlap print on this bag. I sourced the coffee sack from a seller right on Etsy - so one small business helping out another - which is fantastic. I purchased this coffee sack because I thought the print was so different from anything I've ever seen, and I've spent a fair share of time rummaging through burlap sacks to find the right ones for the Grounds bags. I like that the design incorporates vibrant colors and more freehand font design.

The bottom of the bag and the upper portion of the interior lining is made from heavy-weight (called bottom weight) light beige/cream fabric. This is the first Grounds bag to incorporate a two-tone interior lining color scheme, so the bottom half of the interior is a deeper brown/khaki color, also a heavy-weight fabric. There is one inner slide pocket that can fit a phone, ID, keys, lip gloss, and whatever else you may need to keep separate from the larger items. The slide pocket is trimmed with the same burlap print that was used for the exterior of the bag. It's a fun way to tie the whole design together.

The shape of this bag is triangular so the top of the bag is about 10" larger than the bottom. Due to this, the bag doesn't stand up on it's own. The bag can be carried by it's long rope straps which are reinforced with silver grommets and embellished with a brown suede ribbon.

This bag was carefully designed, if you can't tell from all of these detailed descriptions! When I selected the coffee sack design, I had it in mind that it would be primarily used as a beach bag, but in reality, it can be used for any occasion, like all our Grounds bags. It's up to the owner to decide how to style it and make it their own. It's truly a rare piece, and I hope that you love it as much as I do. As mentioned, you can find more detailed dimensions and information in the Lina and Vi Etsy shop.

Hope you're having a great week!
