I Love: Tribe Bags Changi Travel Wallet Review & Giveaway

by farrah on August 16, 2012 · 125 comments

 

Tribe is a luxury leather diaper bag and accessories company founded in 2011. Tribe’s founder and owner, Australian-born and bred, Rosie Jansen, is a former banking lawyer based in Singapore. After spending 10 years practicing law in Sydney, Tokyo and Singapore, she left behind a successful legal career to establish Tribe. In following her instincts, the mother of one has created a stand-out and top of class brand, which has taken the previously humble diaper bag to the upper level of style and casual luxury.–Tribe Press Release

Tribe bags are my new leather good crush. From the moment I saw their fantastic Changi Wallet– I knew that I had to have it and see if it was as helpful as it was beautiful. Luckily for me- it is, and we have used it now on several occasions.

Tribe’s popular Changi Travel Wallet is back and better: it now comes with a detachable wristlet! The Changi Travel Wallet comfortably holds up to 4-6 passports with silver-stamped dividers and pockets keeping travel essentials secure and organised. Made from crocodile embossed leather and complimented with silver hardware, it also doubles as a clutch purse.

When traveling to the Netherlands back in June- it kept our passports organized, receipts and boarding passes all in once place. We have since flown on two other occasions and I love it. It’s very easy to grab- and hang onto with the sassy wristlet strap.  The Changi is going to be my go to carry-all when we’re streaking across Europe and jetting from country to country (doesn’t that sound incredible!?) and I am juggling 5 passports at a time, rail tickets, receipts, etc.  It’s my own personal little corner of luxury when I’m surrounded by tiny little travel ninjas out to thwart my every effort to have a flawless journey.

So here’s the deal– the Changi comes in four delightful, croc embossed leather colors for you to choose from. Equally important- it’s extremely practical with these features:

Exterior:

– magnetic closure
– rear zippered pocket
– detachable wristlet

Interior:

– compartment dividers for “Tickets”, “Receipts”, “Others” and “Passports”
– slip pocket for “Boarding Passes”
– zippered pocket for “Currencies”
– multi-use zippered pocket
– 6 credit card slots
Once you meet the Changi, you’re going to want to introduce yourself to the rest of the Tribe Bag family- the colors, softness and high end quality are things that any mom would love. It has been such an absolute pleasure working with Tribe- I am thrilled for their success and their willingness to work with me. Thank you for making such delicious leather luxuries!
So you have no excuse for not having one of these beautiful Changi Wallets. It’s the perfect size to take on the run pretty much anywhere.

Connect: Connect with Tribe Bags on Facebook and Twitter.

Buy It: Currently the Changi is on sale for $114 USD. Not too shabby for something that doubles as a luxury leather clutch AND a travel organizer!

Win it! One extremely lucky reader will win their own Changi in their color of choice. Enter on the Rafflecopter form below. You must be 18+ and a US resident to win. Mandatory blog comment entry– head over to their accessories page and tell me which color you’d love in a post comment.

That is amazingly handy! I can’t stand being the one in control of all of the travel documents but I also don’t want my husband doing it either (he can’t even find his keys when he uses them every single day). I would definitely feel more secure in holding them if I had something like this to keep it all safe and contained.
