Betty & Walter Geranium Brandy Meringue Double Wash Bag

As soon as I saw the Betty & Walter range I was in love, anything that is styled and described as being 'Vintage themed' gets my attention everytime.  The Christmas Gift Guide is packed full of vintage inspired products from splendiferously scented soap or marvellously meticulous manicure set stocking fillers to purses and tote bags, each item being covered in a 60's inspired print but with a contemporary twist.

The Betty & Walter designs by the lovely Lisa Levis nee Stickley, a British textile designer, came up with the Betty & Walter brand back in the autumn of 2011, launching the first collection in Spring 2013.  Taking inspiration from my wonderful Aunty Betty and Uncle Walter, Lisa wanted to design and create practical product of good value and quality with a fresh take on modern print.


The item I fell in love with is the Geranium Brandy Meringue Double Wash Bag** which comes from the Betty & Walter AW14 range.  Each bag within the range is made with PU Coated cotton outer and nylon lined which gives it that practical wipe clean finish. Featuring this fantastic print geranium print, which has been hand drawn by Lisa, happens to be one of Aunty Betty's flowers of choice and I just love how the petals look as though they have been scattered across the cloth and for something so well made, the £30 price tag is more than justified.

The bag has two very roomy pouches which is perfect for me when I travel with work or go off to visit friends and family or am lucky enough to grab a weekend away with my Hubs.  As you can see below, I can fit quite a lot of products in it with no problem and it is carries all of my bathroom essentials and a few more items.  The zips are really well made and are very sturdy which makes such a big difference from the cheap shop bought ones I kept buying, the zip would snag, split or fall off and would end up throwing it in the bin, now with this, it will last for years to come and is a design I am never going to get bored of.

As you can see I have managed to fit quite a lot of shower and skincare products in the bag with room for more to be added.  As I am going to visit my parents for a long weekend, I began the packing process a little early so I could showcase how roomy this bag is.

For me this is the perfect weekend washbag, it fits everything in that I need and more and is just a beautifully designed bag.

  1. It looks gorgeous - better to have one of these instead of my plastic bag that I grab.

  2. That's a pretty bag, I love the flower design. It's great it has two sections as I can never fit everything I need into one washbag,

  19. How on earth did you manage to fit some much stuff in it!? It's Hermione's never ending magic handbag from Harry Potter (minus the kitchen sink ;D)
