Project Description

The Handbag Schlep

Look familiar?

Sound familiar?

A Gap in the Current Market 

Currently the options for a handbag that can work for all aspects of a woman's life are limited. 

 

What We're Doing About It

We provide women unlimited flexibility with the use of a Sofia Fima Handbag and Organizer to streamline and support her day from start to finish. Pack an organizer for work, pack another with baby gear, or another for the gym. Our system provides you the flexibility to use your bag for all aspects of your life by simply switching out your organizer.

 

How It Works

 

What People Are Saying About It

"Yesterday, I was running late to get my son as I had to get something out for a client and wanted to leave as quickly as possible once I was done.  I was AMAZED by how quickly I could just grab my bag, pack it, and go.  I don’t think I really factored in the fact that because my other bag was a floppy cavern, I often had to unpack it in order to pack it at the end of the day with the stuff I was taking home (e.g., client files, notebook, used lunch container, etc).  With your bag, I can just slip everything right in, no fighting with stuff, no unpacking/repacking, and I can easily check that I have everything and run." - Helen

 

Our Newest Solutions to Live A Life Well Organized

Building on the success of our flagship Main Squeeze Tote and Chief of Staff Organizer, this project is responding to the feedback we’ve heard from women who want to see the next generation of organizational solutions from Sofia Fima. That is why we're here asking for your help!

 

We're now expanding our product offering to introduce 3 new handbag styles focused on 3 priorities.

 

  • A lightweight solution that is structured.
  • An alternative material to leather.
  • A backpack style.

These are all available as rewards through this campaign.

 

Our Mission

To provide the modern professional woman with a chic and versatile handbag so she can conquer her everyday hustle with confidence.

Our Story

Sofia Fima is named after our Founders mother Sofia and her father Fima. They emigrated to this country with the belief that Dianna and her sister Marina could have unlimited opportunities to pursue their passions. They empowered and always reminded them that they could be anything they wanted. This brand is dedicated to them.

 

Why IFundWomen

We picked IFundWomen because we love their approach to empowering more women by teaching them how to properly raise a successful campaign step by step. Women supporting women is our jam!
