*Thank you to Remedy Road for partnering on this post! I am so passionate about this company and their mission!
We’ve been doing a bit of traveling this spring and this first part of summer, and I have some trips already planned for late summer and into fall. (Which I’m SO excited about!) In any event, while this wasn’t always the case, I’ve gotten much better in the past couple of years at packing more efficiently when I take short trips. I have found that a good part of packing efficiently is having the right bag. If I’m taking just an overnight or two-night trip, a weekend bag is pretty much all I need! This JOYN bag from Shop Remedy Road is the best fair trade weekend bag and honestly can be used for SO MUCH more than just a carry-on or travel bag.
If you haven’t heard of Remedy Road, they are an online shop and brick-and-mortar boutique located in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I discovered them a few months ago and LOVE their shop and their mission. Remedy Road really makes shopping ethically and shopping for fair trade goods so easy. Seriously! They carry everything from ethically made women’s apparel to fair trade footwear, to handbags, ethical home goods, meaningful gifts, and even ethical items for kids!
This weekend bag seriously fits SO MANY THINGS. I can fit my laptop, charger, headphones, multiple books, my planner, wallet, a change of clothes, toothbrush, etc. all in this bag. The weekender also works really well as a large diaper bag or day bag, too!
It’s really sturdy, too. The leather handles give it that solid feeling, but the canvas material is soft enough that it’s flexible. The print is hand stamped by artisans in India who are paid above and beyond a living wage! I love that!
It is also the perfect, neutral print and so this weekend bag really is timeless and I know I will use it for years and years to come.
I honestly can’t say enough good things about Remedy Road. Their whole motto is Live with Purpose, Shop with Purpose, and that is so much what I am about! If you are looking for an easy way to shop for fair trade and ethical goods, Remedy Road is a GREAT place!
