It’s not every day you see a bag from Zara here, but there are good reasons why. For one, it’s a rubber bag, which is not exactly unexpected these days, with Gucci having had a much larger one many seasons back. Then there’s the price, which at SGD69.90 isn’t that bad a deal at all, considering the fact that it is also a bag that can be worn across the shoulder.
Entirely made out of silicone, the material choice makes for a great alternative for those who will never use leather bags. Another plus point has got to be its rubberised texture that’s entirely waterproof, making it great for those with young kids who worry about getting their C or H bags stained when the family is out and about.
Looks aside, there’s a fair amount of effort in the design process as well, from the raised lines on the exterior to the removable drawstring interior bag that will keep everything securely in place. There’s also a snap closure by the handles to keep the bag shut, with an adjustable strap which will suit ladies (or men) of varying heights.
As for the size, the Rubberised Tote Bag measures 40 cm at its widest and 21 cm high, more than enough for your weekly grocery runs and thus saving you the need for taking extra plastic bags that are simply unnecessary these days. Interestingly, the bag is not available at Zara boutiques, but you can find it online with several delivery/shipping options listed for you.
Collect it at any Zara store within 2 to 5 working days for free, or opt for home delivery for an additional SGD5.90 islandwide within Singapore. Returns are also free if you ever wish to reconsider, though this one’s a keeper for sure. It’s affordable, fun and perfect if you love stretching every dollar, which is honestly nothing more than you can ask from a bag these days.
