You all know I like a well-made bag, right? The thing is I also like a touch of quirk, something with a wink. If that bag doesn’t equal one month’s mortgage, I get even more turned on. Tookata People fits the bill. Their collections will elicit squeals of “aiii, so kawaii” everywhere you tote them but look a little closer and you’ll see materials and construction that will appeal to your grown-up side too.
I first discovered Tookata years ago at the Riches kiosk in Kahala Mall on Oahu. Riches is no ordinary kiosk. They carry unique jewelry bags and other accessories by brands not widely distributed. I still have my laptop bag and the Gaby satchel bought from Riches adorned with a cute hapa girl surfer surrounded by pink and purple. So, I don’t really need any more Tookata People but this Gaby in the Pink Robot collection gives me pause. If this was twitter, you know what my hashtag would be – #WANT.
The Gaby has a smooth leather exterior and a ton of pockets to organize your gear in a lovely medium modified duffle shape. Tookata also offers pet carriers, laptop bags and small accessories in their limited collection prints including their classic Geisha girl and a modern day interpretation of Barbie. The whimsical prints are paired with classic shapes making it easy for anyone to add a little art to their arm from the office lady to the cool boho chick.
