The Georgie Bag

Hey Folks, Georgie and Jessie here.

We're mates from way back when we entered a primary school gymnastics competition together and discovered our surnames corresponded quite nicely - Wright and Wong. Since then, we've channeled our teen angst into numerous high school projects, birthed Yu Mei (Jessie), moved to London to work at i-D and MTV (Georgie), drank approx. 23018 gallons of aperol spritz (both) and made a bag together, the Georgie Bag. It was inspired by our mutual travel obsession / Georgie's desperate need for zips to stop losing her things.

So we took some very serious travel pictures to demonstrate the Georgie bag's varied and plentiful real life uses. At the time of launch, President Trump announced his plans to ban travel to the US with his executive order on immigration. As a result, 20% of the sales of each Georgie bag was donated to the International Refugee Assistance Project - an organisation working tirelessly to fight for refugees worldwide whose fundamental rights were undermined by the Trump administration. Mobilising lawyers, law students and law schools, IRAP turn every dollar donated into $10 towards legal assistance for refugees who wouldn't otherwise have access to it. In short, they are bloody legends.

Lots of love, Georgie and Jessie
