Lea Nguyen has designed a no excuse handbag, relieving us of that moment when we are at the grocery store and the clerk asks us if we need a plastic bag, only to realize we didn’t bring a handy, re-usable carrier. UGH! The label Poupees Russes, the French name for Russian babushka dolls, offers its first line — Katarina — with the Boria tote being this friendly accessory to your daily stroll. It’s cute, functional, comfortable and helping to save the earth, one less plastic bag at a time. Just the way we like it.
