#SupportLokalPH: Pravi

Recently, I've been discovering a number of local (i.e. Filipino) independent businesses. Some of them I've discovered online (on Facebook or on Instagram), others in bazaars. I realize how challenging it is for them to compete with the global market--just look at the shops in our malls and you'll see that most of the brands are from foreign companies ("local" businesses are usually re-sellers na lang)--so in my own little way, I would like to help promote their brand by featuring some of my favorite purchases in this blog.

I've been putting off buying another leather bag for the longest time, but something about the new year just gets me in the mood for shopping. After some start-of-the-year cleaning, I had to retire my Kelly Moore camera bag, which made me realize that most of the bags I own are in the Big and Roomy department. Because of this, I convinced myself that I needed a replacement bag that fits the Everyday Average-Sized description. 

My measly attempt to flat lay my Pravi haul.

I've been following Pravi for almost as long as I have been following Costal Bags, but it is only now that I have decided what bag I would like to buy. My recently retired Kelly Moore guided me to the direction of a hobo-style bag, which led me to purchase Pravi's Florence (3,850 PhP).

The Florence features a cloth-lined interior and three inner pockets.
