Sack It To Me


At work, office drab is not your style.

Your everyday ensemble includes an ultra-stylish laptop bag, and you show up at every meeting with your designer business portfolio and coordinating ballpoint pen. Even your desk is topped with chic accessories that perfectly mix and match.

So why is your lunchtime look spoiled by crumpled, left-over grocery bags and boring, brown paper sacks?

Enter Bento Bags, the adorable, hand-sewn lunch totes made by local designer Joanna Lau. Available in a variety of bright, cheery colors, each bag is adorned with a simple yet sweet cotton or felt appliqué, such as a cupcake, fish, cherry, truck or tulip.

And since they're made of a durable, easy-to-clean nylon fabric, the sacks can just as easily handle toting your leftovers, drinks and snacks as they can be rolled up and thrown in your purse to take home.

So you’ll never again have a failure to lunch.

Joanna Lau’s Bento Bags are available at the DOLCE boutique at Ward Centre, 1200 Ala Moana Blvd., Honolulu, HI, 96814, 808.596.9436.
