Here’s a little bit about how the Prene Bags label came to be:

“The brand first came about in 2015. I knew I was onto something when I gave my mum a sample bag to carry out to dinner one night. Five people stopped and asked her where she bought her bag. I could see then that there was potential for what I thought could be a little side venture whilst I was studying my first year of business at university. Little did I know that it would explode beyond my wildest expectations – and result in the brand you see today.

I began expanding the range by designing styles that quite simply – I wanted to carry. As a consumer, what I sought in a bag was something uncomplicated, classic and practical. Crafting the bags from perforated neoprene gave these elements a very unique, cool look. This aesthetic really resonated with our customers and has now become our signature style.

– Tammy Green, Founder & Director, Prene Bags
