The New Backpack from Susan Bijl has a compact design and is ideal for work, school and any other day-to-day essentials. The grey and camel backpack has an inner sleeve to protect a laptop, various additional inside pockets and tight pockets for holding a phone or a folded shopping bag.

Made from strong, yet lightweight waterproof ripstop nylon, the backpack has a diagonal stripe flash, adding a contrasting colour to the design. It also has adjustable straps, handles on top and an easily accessible large front pocket that closes with a subtle magnet. This backpack will be all you need.

  • Material : 300D heavy-duty waterproof fabric, which is Bluesign® certified and 100% recycled ripstop polyester, treated with a recycled TPE coating
  • Waterproof with waterproof YKK zipper
  • Lined with YULEX® natural foam rubber for optimal protection
  • Colour : Grey with Camel Stripe
  • Size : 35×27×10 cm
  • Care : Can be machine washed at 30 degrees, preferably using a short program. Always wash your bags separately from other fabrics.  This bag has a waterproof coating that will fade with every laundry cycle. Close the zipper before washing. 

Based in Rotterdam, Susan Bijl Studio creates colourful products with a purpose. Born partly from the idea of reducing the waste involved with the production of plastic bags, each new product is something that the team really want to use themselves on a daily basis. Susan Bijl believe in long-lasting products: quality over quantity. Everything is done with a strong love for minimalistic and functional design. 

Bellwoods Lifestyle Store brings together a collection of planet friendly, design-led and cool things for you, your home and your life.

There's nothing better than being able to see and touch beautiful objects and our bricks and mortar shop on the North East Coast of England has been designed as a calm space filled with positivity and joy in mind.

We try to emulate this feeling into our website too. Each maker and item in the shop has a modern, well-made design with strong ethical credentials and is selected to feel like it belongs next to the other. 

We work with well-known brands such as Bloomingville, Broste Copenhagen, The Poster Club, OYOY Living Design and Aykasa, as well as independent designers from the UK and around the world. 

We are working to become plastic free and waste free and re-use everything we can to reduce our impact on the environment - we plant a tree with every online order through ecologi. We're pro-active in supporting our local community too, having raised money for a different charity each month (sometimes we donate to two a month!) We're a drop off point for the East End Women Food Bank and host monthly pop up shops with local, independent makers, giving them a physical retail space and shop window to showcase their work and connect with a new audience. 

 

Bellwoods Lifestyle Store Founder, Nathalie

 

Bellwoods is independently owned and operated by Nathalie, a former retail manager and visual merchandiser.

"I (Nathalie) spent most of my 20s living in Toronto. While I was there, I worked in merchandising and operation management for big retail brands like Urban Outfitters, and small independent shops too. I got so inspired by the vibrant indie shop scene in the city, and dreamt of having my own shop - it’s actually probably the only thing I’ve ever wanted to do.

I finally made it happen in a furlough “now or never” moment in 2020, and I started a shop on my spare room shelves. I wanted the shop to be about Lifestyle - offering design-led and planet friendly things for you, your home, and you life. Things from brands you know and love, and from designers you’re yet to know and love.

Bellwoods Lifestyle Store is affectionately named after Trinity Bellwoods Park in the centre of Toronto, where I spent so many summer days. I wanted to bring a bit of my inspiration and experience to our peachy haven by the sea in Whitley Bay.

We love our home, being surrounded by so many other small businesses and a wonderful community. Whitley Bay is really a special place"
