NaRaYa is a Thai fabric bag line that has created sturdy and beautiful pieces since 1993. I remember how women of different ages flocked to the store when it first opened in the Philippines. I wasn’t familiar with its roots and quality, so I dismissed it as flimsy and too girly.
Decades later, my husband gifted me with one from his trip to Thailand. I didn’t think much of it since I was toting a diaper bag more often. Little did I know that the size was perfect for all my things, versatile and so sturdy that it could take on airline baggage check-ins!
What I like about NaRaYa bags:
1. High quality. Do not let NaRaYa’s ribbon designs fool you! The NaRaYa carry-all was a gift from my husband three years ago, and it has been used in so many ways. It has been my laptop bag, diaper bag, overnight travel bag, extra luggage and more.
2. Lightweight. It’s incredibly lightweight so it’s easy to tuck into our luggage’s extra compartment.
Sadly, NaRaYa exited the Philippines. But the good news is that you don’t have to travel to Thailand to get a NaRaYa bag! It’s now in Shopee as an overseas shop!
