Mia Tui – Sydney Backpack – Review
Ive known about Mia Tui for quite a few years now, must be at least 2014, back in my previous blogging days. I reviewed various products then, and even during my non blogging days I’d always be torn towards their newest handbags/backpacks. I have now at least 7-8 bags hidden under my bed, I just LOVE them.
Why Mia Tui?
Designed by a busy mother of 2 children, Charlotte always wanted to find the perfect bag. Explaining other bags as “black holes”, the inside of her bags were always so dark, where things would just get lost. There was hardly enough pockets to put items she didn’t want to lose at the bottom of her bag in, meaning that all important lippy or pen would get lost.
She was where Mia Tui was invented.
Charlotte strived to design that perfect ‘mum bag’. Bright linings so that items would never get lost within the handbag, big internal pocket for storing a diary/iPad or even a laptop. Pen holders for you know, holding pens! A phone holder, that was actually big enough to hold a phone! And a separate clear pouch as an added extra, perfect for storing your lippy and other small items that would usually get lost at the bottom of a bag. These bags are practical in every way!
A Bag For Every Woman
When I say ‘a bag for every woman” I really do mean it, Mia Tui over the years has gone from strength to strength, there are now small clutch bags, purse bags, small and large cross body bags, shoulder bags, cabin and travel bags, work bags, occasion bags, baby change bags and backpacks! Not to mention the accessories, water bottles, bag charms for added security and small organiser bags for inside your handbag/backpack. All Mia Tui bags and products are made from high quality fabrics, with no animal based products meaning they are vegan friendly. Suitable for everyone.
Recently I took part in a Facebook competition, to win a Back-To-School bundle from Mia Tui for a chance to win a Sydney Backpack, Oxford Folding Backpack and Beau Small Organiser. The items were to be for Leah, my daughter, to use for her day to day trips to school, so we were delighted to hear when we won!
With a little help from me, Leah decided to order the Sydney Backpack in Black and the Oxford Folding Backpack and Beau Small Organiser in a matching Blue Star.

The Wearing Test
Delighted with her new chosen Sydney Backpack, Leah couldn’t wait to use it for the first time for the school run. The straps of the backpack are padded, perfect for children/users who will fully utilise and use this backpack for long hours, protecting shoulders from pain.
Myself, I fully intend to steal this backpack from Leah at the weekend to use at BlogOn Conference. Allowing me to pack all my essentials I need for the day, including day to day items, my laptop computer, notepad, pens, bottle of water and more.
Coming soon our review of the Oxford Folding Backpack and Beau Small Organiser.
