Stationery has found a new home in our playful roundup of designer pouches, purses, wallets and bags. A delicious monster cosmetics bag from Lula Fabrics (above) was the first of our vibrant finds, and sparked the idea of a fun and cheerful stationery wallet roundup. Here’s the rest of our inspirational colour-coded collection…

Tomato ‘Eep!’ pencil bag (above) and Inky Blue ‘Cloudbirds’ (below), both R60 from Skinny Laminx. These pencil bags are available in an assortment of colours and signature Skinny Laminx fabrics.

Rebecca Houston, DECO’s super-talented intern, created one-of-a-kind pencil bags for each DECO staff member (above & below). ‘I make my pencil bags out of material I scrounge from second hand shops, old clothes with interesting patterns and the fabric scraps left over from other more ambitious projects’.

Charcoal-coloured clutch bags by Anatomy Design (above & below). These were created as over-sized man-wallets and distributed at the Design Indaba Expo.

Bag O’ Booty canvas printed fabric pouch (above), and Cha-Ching leather purse (below), R180 and R700, from Missibaba.
