Inkling Messy Bags do exactly what the name implies; they wrangle your mess!

Maybe you need to keep the mess in (think: leaky shampoo while travelling, dirty bibs from brunch while out with your toddler, taking wet swimmers home from the pool or beach).

Maybe you need to keep the mess out (think: keeping your wallet, phone, keys and sunnies in one easy to grab spot, keep the sunscreen away from the bottom of the sandy beach bag, keeping devices safe while out or travelling).

Their versatility is their secret weapon. The same Messy Bag will carry your wallet, phone, lip balm and keys while grabbing a coffee with friends or to carry your cosmetics on a weekend getaway.

Messy Bags are the bag you didn't know you needed.

Be warned though, they're addictive!

Once you own one you'll realise you actually *need* seven.
