Bags of Love HQ have created lots of lovely products to make your holidays easier

We don’t just want to tell you about our new products – we want them to tell you all about themselves! So, in their own words, let us introduce you to the first of our new products!

Our first new product interview is with our rather wonderful Personalised Travel Wallet.


Interview with a travel wallet

Bags of Love: Hi there Personal Travel Wallet, thanks for letting us interview you! How are you today?

Personalised Travel Wallet: I’m great thanks! Really excited to be here.

Bags of Love: Well, first things first, should we call you Personal Travel Wallet, or is there something else you prefer to go by?

Personalised Travel Wallet: That’s fine, but some folk call me a Leather Travel Wallet or a Customised Travel Wallet and in fact, someone just called me a Leather Travel Folder…never been called that before…

BOL: Hmmm…maybe we’ll just stick to Personalised Travel Wallet then!

PTW: Good idea.

BOL: While we’re on the subject of what people call you, why don’t you let us know exactly what you are used for.

PTW: Sure. The production team at Bags of Love made me because a few of them really wanted something to keep their travel documents safe and sound when they went on holiday. But of course, being Bags of Love, it couldn’t just be a bog-standard wallet. It had to be a bit special, so naturally, they made me personalised!

BOL: And what are your main features?

PTW: Well, I’m made from lovely leather. Also when you open me up, I have lots of useful compartments for cards, coins, banknotes, tickets and all sorts. I even have a really useful zip pocket to keep your passport secure and safe. I have a popper fastening, which makes it really easy to open me when you need to get to your money or ticket quickly.


BOL: Wow! You sound amazing! And so useful too. Did you say you were made of leather?

PTW: Awww thanks! Yes, I’m made of leather. The production team here are Bags of Love print and then they stitch me together by hand. They’re very clever.

BOL: And as you are a custom made wallet, does that mean that people can print whatever they want on you?

PTW: It sure does! They don’t call me a Personalised Travel Wallet for nothing! All the customer needs to do is to use the design interface on the Bags of Love website. Theyn they can personalise me as they wish. They can choose a photo, several photos, create a montage, use their favourite design, create some meaningful text…whatever they want really. Whatever they feel would make me personal to them. I’m printed in very high-quality full colour, so I look pretty great too!

BOL: Who do you think would like to own you?

PTW: Well, I think I would make a great gift idea for someone who loves to travel, either for pleasure or for business. I’m particularly good for a parent who has to travel a lot for work, as they can customise me with photos of their family and take them with them wherever they go. Because I have so many useful compartments, I would make a great purse too…especially for those who like to carry a lot around with them! Money, cards, notes, receipts…you name it!

BOL: You really do sound like you would make a great gift or even a treat for someone who is looking to make their travel accessories more stylish. How can our readers get started designing you?

PTW: Just click here and I’ll whisk them off to our design interface and we can get started!

BOL: Thanks so much Personalised Travel Wallet, it was great to meet you and welcome to the Bags of Love family!
