Introducing the Lorna & Bel smart bag

Charge your phone anywhere, anytime. Welcome to the Lorna & Bel ‘smart bag’.

Is there anything more frustrating than running out of phone charge when you’re busy and on-the-go? Who hasn’t sat in their car waiting to load a few extra percentage points of power onto a soon-to-die phone battery? Or fretted about the next available power plug in a day crammed full of appointments and errands?

At Lorna & Bel, we certainly have. That’s why we were inspired to combine our love of beautiful design with the more practical concern of keeping powered-up while at work or play. The result was our first Lorna & Bel ‘smart bag’, a stylish grain leather handbag fitted with an inbuilt rechargeable battery.

Our priority from day one has been to offer a beautiful product, using quality materials and design touches that make a woman want to use her bag irrespective of the integrated technology. First and foremost, our ‘smart bag’ had to be chic.

Our next priority was to make the technology discreet. We didn’t want to create a ‘tech bag’, we wanted to create a fashion bag that seamlessly integrated technology for the sole purpose of making a busy woman’s life easier.

We designed a separate zipper compartment inside the bag to enable a powerful, light-weight battery and cables to be neatly hidden away. We also added a clever slide pocket on the bag’s exterior to allow for easy charging and quick phone access (no more fumbling around with opening your bag or frantic digging for an elusive phone lying at its bottom). The cable to charge the phone has been threaded through the bag’s lining into the slide pocket – it couldn’t be easier to charge.

We are thrilled with the result of our first ‘smart bag’ and hope you will be too.
