daame : leather laptop tote

daame laptop tote side

The right laptop bag is hard to come by. I’m feeling this tote by Daame, a small new biz that launched with this product only. They donate 5% of all profits to a featured organization that supports women in some way.

Currently, donations go to Outliers International, dedicated to providing safety and education for girls in the village of Minawar, Pakistan where the literacy rate for women is as low as 12%.

Pre-order the tote ($395, was $465) which ships later in April.
