Carry the Arts

Fancy something to show your love for the Nelson Arts Festival? We've teamed up with local sustainability warriors THE GREEN COLLECTIVE to create our amazing Carry the Arts bags from our clocktower banner. 

We have some rad new designs for 2023: the totes ($55) are big and sturdy enough to carry all your arts supplies and everyday must haves, while the book bags double as laptop sleeves ($35), and the hip/bum/across the body bags ($55) are amazing to keep your hands free but your must haves with you. And the best part: each bag is absolutely unique!
