Inventor + Designer, Sherrill Mosee, Has Re-Engineered the Everyday Handbag – MinkeeBlue

As we celebrate Black History Month, let’s give a shout-out to all the women of color that have broken barriers and pursued entrepreneurial ventures that have made a difference.

Sherrill Mosee, inventor and designer of MinkeeBlue, is a prime example of this. She is the first African American woman to hold a patent on a folding panel inside of a fashion handbag. We admire her spirit and drive as much as her amazing travel and work bags!

Women’s styles are as different as they are. Some cannot live without a tote while others prefer a backpack that transitions easily from day to night. MinkeeBlue offers both in gorgeous styles and vegan options that cater to today’s women. Effortlessly use the one that speaks to your preference and carry on in style and versatility. There is nothing else on the market like it, featuring a folding panel in the middle that converts to a big open tote bag or a two-compartment bag.

A great example is the Mariah Backpack that we recommend as the gift of the year for Mother’s Day. It has a compartment for everything and looks amazing! Mom’s day is in the bag.
