If you’re not a fan of floral and padded ‘carpet bag’ diaper bags designer Anne York has your back. Most diaper bags come in a uniform design resembling something like travel luggage and quickly becoming a giant disorganized black hole of encrusted bottle tops, cheerios and a bunch of other useless items that you’ll never or rarely use. Alternatively non-traditional diaper bags are often marketed exclusively to dads and they can look like luxury luggage accessories or corporate briefcases and not actually useful diaper bags.
And who hasn’t hung a heavy diaper bag on the back of a stroller only to have it tip over once baby is removed? Or schlepped up narrow crowded subway steps under the weight of an over-burdened stroller? Moving around with an over-packed traditional diaper bag can be a frustrating part of a new parents’ life.
While in Paris with their own bebe Anne and her husband Nik wondered why in the City of Chic, that diaper bags had not been fashionably updated? They realized that such an update had to reflect the needs of today’s parents – the need for versatility: between parents, between work and play. When the couple returned home to Austin, Texas, they immediately went to work on creating a different kind of diaper bag.
And they’re pretty different, made with eco-friendly materials that are easy to clean and maintain. They’re also designed with multiple functions in mind, so a parent can carry a bag well beyond their child’s infancy.
Designed in Austin and made in the USA. Created for modern parents, this bag has a laptop pocket, a 5-compartment organizer, 5 strategically placed pockets. carry this bag on your shoulder or attach it to your stroller. it’s tall and wide enough to fit everything you need for the day!

Real Parents, Real Reviews: Aaron Martin
“The Anne York Everyday Tote is the Lincoln Continental of diaper bags. The tote has a classic style, clean cut, and sturdy structure; it is large enough to hold all on-the-go baby-care needs and then some. The bag exudes confidence in both its carrying and construction, a look alternatively beautiful and handsome. With its functional sophistication, the Everyday Tote is truly a go-to and go-anywhere parent accessory.”
The Anne York bag is a practical, stylish necessity for modern parents. We particularly love how well-made and robust the bags are. Made in USA is also a huge plus for us. The inner compartments make sorting essentials easy and encourage a more minimal approach to baby care. All of which cuts down on tipping strollers and aching backs. These bags make the perfect registry gift
