EATSLEEPDOODLE Practical as well as stylish, eatsleepdoodle’s new ‘colour & carry’ tote bags are made from heavy 100 per cent cotton canvas and sturdy enough to hold books, shopping and more. Each bag comes complete with 10 wash-out fabric pens tucked into the inner pocket, so kids (and adults) can enjoy adding their own colours to the educational designs. Then when they’re ready for a new colour scheme, pen ink disappears completely in the machine. They also look great just as they are − making ideal adult shoppers too. The ‘colour & carry’ bag is available in three designs: an intriguing pond life design, teeming with creatures and plant life to discover; a hand-drawn world map illustration with wild animals and famous landmarks; and a wild butterfly scene packed full of some of the world’s most beautiful butterflies. Like all the colour & learn products, the new totes are educational as well as creative: each design comes backed up with lots of fun learning resources on the eatsleepdoodle website. +44 (0)1722 325 304 STORY OF ELEGANCE Story of Elegance is a brand- new British luxury greeting cards and stationery brand.
