Chicago designer Holly + Tanager

Professional backpack purse from Holly + Tanager
Professional backpack purse from Holly + Tanager

Holly & Tanager’s leather backpack purse, “The Professional” is a practical and fashionable solution for women commuters trying to find a combo backpack & purse that both looks good – and is functional.   

Colors Available:
Black, Gray, Caramel, Cream, Red and Lemon

More styles are available on their website.   Learn more about Holly + Tanager on StyleChicago.com.

The Professional is a chameleon that seamlessly converts from a backpack to a tote to a cross-body bag that’s suitable for your daily commute — whether it’s taking the “El”, METRA or bus to work or hopping on a plane for a business meeting – or heading to a play date with little ones.

Similarly styled bags retail for $1,000-$2,000 or more at luxury department stores, whereas less expensive versions at mass market retailers tend to look super cheap –  and lack the design sophistication of The Professional.
