Local stylist and lifestyle blogger, Janette Wojtaszak, of The Statement Life, was sick of rummaging through her handbag looking for things, only to find she’d left what she needed in another purse. She decided to come up with a solution for her handbag organisation woes, launching Sorted earlier this year.
“I am a highly organised person and felt like my bag situation wasn’t,” she says. “I always needed something – lip gloss, antihistamines – and I never had them in the bag I carried. I just knew that other women would be experiencing the same thing. I had to solve it for us!”
She’s designed the Sorted bag as a solution for all the sufferers of a poorly-organised handbag out there: it’s a clear pouch with pockets to store all your essentials in the one place, allowing you to easily locate what you need and move it all from bag to bag.
Janette says the design evolved over time, with lots of feedback from friends and family, and a number of changes before the final product was ready for sale.
“I started working on it in June 2019,” she says, having taken her time to find the right manufacturer to produce her designs.
“The design evolved over time and there was a lot of changes … It almost didn’t come to life but I didn’t let it stop me, I kept pushing and was patient.
“It’s available in black or pink and has one clear panel allowing you to see your belongings, and the other side is covered for any hidden essentials you don’t want to be seen.”
You can even use it as a stand-alone clutch bag for nights out or busy days on the run. Janette says it has pockets large enough for “everyday essentials such as cards, pens, lip gloss and sunglasses”.
“It’s my style weapon.”
