MADE HERE | The Beverage-Filled Tote Bag

February 20, 2019 - Posted in Digital Studios by Kaitlyn Cannon

The Swankey is a fully-functioning tote bag that has a cooler compartment. The creator, Tracey Luebbers from Lake Wylie, explains how she came up with the idea. She says, "I came up with the idea in 2011 and headed to our community pool one afternoon. I was carrying a tote bag, my purse, and a cooler. All of this stuff was really hard to carry. I thought to myself, simply, wouldn't it be nice if there was a better way?" 

Luebbers thinks it's important to buy local because "you help support someone's family, someone's dream, and I think that's what makes a community great."

Made Here is a digital series produced by ETV Carolinas that explores small businesses in South Carolina.
