The Bean Bag is our first collaborative project together with Joji, our friend and the amazing designer behind Joji & Co and Joji Knits.

We began our friendship in 2019, when Joji & Co first launched. I admired the outstanding styles, craftsmanship and most importantly, the wonderful customer service that was offered. I was an INSTANT fan of everything that Joji & Co produced.  Joji and I quickly became friends and I would absolutely love when she'd ask for and value my opinions and ideas about the products she offered and would offer. A collaboration seemed like something that was destined to happen. Well, here we are today. After lots of careful planning, video chats, DMs and happy tears, The Bean Bag has come to fruition! 

This bag was created in the spirit of solidarity. It is a symbol of empowerment that occurs between women of color as they lift each other up.

The Bean Bag concept, design and color scheme was developed by yours truly, and Joji & Co executed as they only know how to: They picked the best materials and finest craftsmanship to bring to life this bag that reflects the collaboration between our companies.

It was so important to give it a tag that would also identify these bags as collaborative, so the cute LolaBean + Joji logo was born, and we are so proud to use it for the first time in this design.

The Bean Bag is your dream come true: A project bag that works GREAT to knit from (the zipper opens up completely, letting you use it as a bucket, and the fat bottom helps the bag stand on its own) that looks elegant, chic and fabulous when you use it as a purse.

It comes with 2 straps included: A wristlet and a crossbody strap, both removable and interchangeable.



100% Argentine leather (suede for the top, hammered leather for the bottom, vachetta leather for the tag and straps). Fully lined in Panama fabric, with a flat pocket on the inside.

Measurements: Wide: 28cm / 11”; Tall: 23 cm / 8¾”; Base: 13 cm / 5”, Strap: Shortest length 110 cm / 44”, with 20 cm / 8” extension. Wristlet: 32 cm / 12¾” circumference.

Aged brass fittings and zipper.
