MR POPPINS+CO KAHOOTS BAG
Created by Terri Ioannou and Dory D’Orazio, the Kahoots bag by Mr Poppins+Co has been a labour of love for the Perth mums who perfected the design over the course of a year. Frustrated at having to carry multiple bags on family outings, none of which met all of their needs, the pair created the oversized Kahoots to be the “ultimate leisure bag”, perfect for picnics, travel, the beach or boat. “The design process was not something we wanted to rush as we had to properly address everything — how easily the bag could be carried if also juggling toddlers and babies, how easily the contents could be accessed on the go, how the bag would store at home and how to be sure it would stand the test of time,” Ms Ioannou said. With backgrounds in graphic and interior design, the pair not only focused on functionality but also on style. As a result each bag features exclusive prints and custom hardware and handles. The collection includes the Kahoots bag ($249) as well as a Footloose luxury microfibre beach towel ($89), both available from mrpoppinsandco.com.
