When the husband of a good friend of mine asked if he could have his wife’s birthday present delivered to my house, I said, “Sure”. I asked what the present was and he told me a BAM Bag. What on earth is that? He explained that it is a purse, made entirely from one zipper! Needless to say, I couldn’t wait to see it. When they came over for dinner a couple of weeks later, my friend brought her BAM Bag (picture at left). I was utterly fascinated! My friend then demonstrated for me how the bag can be unzipped all the way. BAM Bags come in a variety of styles, colors and uses. A unique feature of the purse that is a conversation starter, is they unzip completely which makes them functional, machine washable and a source of entertainment. You can see how BAM Bags zipper purses zip and unzip in this quick video demo..
BAM Bags are the mastermind and creation of Beth A. Metsch. Beth is a single mom of two. While practicing architecture in New York City, Beth began designing limited edition leather handbags, fabric totes, and diaper bags. Friends started asking for their own bags, and store employees inquired about the designer. It seemed like an opportune time to transition from buildings to bags. Bam Bag’s ZIPPURSE was born when Beth’s mother asked for a purse made out of zippers! Beth’s prototype, made of one continuous zipper, completely entertained her mother! Her love of design is evident in her beautifully-crafted purses. Beth loves that BAM Bags are not just for women. She says, “It’s so interesting how many men buy the backpack because it’s perfect as a computer bag or casual briefcase as it transforms into a messenger bag”.
I was so thrilled when I received this Powder Blue wristlet bag for my review. BAM Bags Zippurse™ WRISTLET is great for running those simple errands – you can throw it in your gym or golf bag or wear it out to the clubs. Remove the strap and it makes a perfect MAKE-UP BAG. The possibilities are endless. I really love this bag. I wasn’t sure of the functionality of the zippers, but the quality and durability of these bags is amazing. Not only are they sturdy, but they are gorgeous. I love the color selection of BAM Bags – there is something for everyone. They can be casual or dressy, and you are sure to get compliments everywhere you go! I am completely hooked on BAM Bags…I now wish to have one of every style and every color (uh-oh!).
Celebrities are huge fans of BAM Bags as well. As a matter of fact, BAM Bags were included in the official Oscar “swag bag” and were given out to high-profile actresses such as Kate Winslet and Sarah Jessica Parker. How cool is that? You can see more celebrities with their BAM Bags here! For more fun info, check out the Bam Bag Blog!
My final thoughts on Bam Bags? LOVE THEM! I love the versatility, the color selection, the uniqueness, the quality, and the styles. I really love that they are affordable. The BAM Bags appeal isn’t only to a certain age group either. People young and old would be proud to display their BAM Bag. There are so many uses for each and every bag, and there is a BAM bag to coordinate with every outfit. These would make wonderful gifts for that “hard to buy for” person. I give BAM Bags a really big thumbs up!
BAM Bags zipper purses can be purchased at retailers and online stores such as ebags, (you can see their customer reviews), ShoeBuy.com and others. They retail for $14 – $70. I thought they would be very costly, but these are really inexpensive prices for bags that are unique, stylish and absolutely gorgeous!
