I recently purchased this Saint Laurent shopping tote. And as soon as I bought it, I knew a bag organizer was next on my shopping list.
As much as I love the open nature of the tote, the inability to organize my things inside just wasn’t going to work for me. Also, being an unlined bag, I feared that the items inside could end up damaging the leather, as I noticed certain objects creating indents on the bag’s exterior. Although it never had a lasting effect, I feared after time it could.
For those that don’t know, Samorga is an independently owned brand of bag organizers with tons of sizes and options for almost any bag you own. And although it took me a long time to decide which organizer I wanted, I knew almost right away I’d be buying a Samorga.
This was partly due to rave reviews of the organizers, but also because of the numerous options available. While most other brands only offer things like ‘small’, ‘medium’, or ‘large’, Samorga offers almost any size and color you can imagine.
Because this style of this Saint Laurent bag is rather new, Samorga doesn’t make an organizer for this specific design (although it does for many others, including the Louis Vuitton Neverfull and Speedy).
Therefore, after comparing numerous options, I chose this organizer, which is originally designed for the Hermes Kelly.
You might notice that this organizer is slightly smaller than the handbag’s dimensions. I did this, first, because I wanted the bag to keep it’s slouchy nature. If the organizer was bigger, it could press up and make it look box-like. Second, I chose this size because I also wanted to be able to slide my laptop in alongside it — on the outside of the organizer.
For these two reasons, I’m extremely happy with the size I chose and it’s functionality in my bag. I can fit all my necessities — and then some — and I’m never digging through a pit of a bag trying to find the one things I need.
I will definitely purchase Samorga organizers for future handbags that need it. The organizer is impeccably made and (in my opinion) worth the price. Yes, there are cheaper alternatives on the market, but I doubt their quality would compare.
My one complaint with the organizer is the time it took to arrive. Because Samorga is an independently owned company, the supply cannot always keep up with the demand. Since Samorga is (I believe) the only bag organizer on the market with such customizability and superior design, the brand has really taken off. This means that you might be waiting several weeks (or a couple of months) for your organizer, which can be a little frustrating.
On another note, however, Samorga has recently added shipping status and order tracking, so at least you’ll be able to get a better idea of when you’re item will arrive.
All in all, I’d recommend a Samorga to anyone who asks. When you spend your hard-earned money on a designer bag, the least you can do is keep it protected — and keeping it organized doesn’t hurt either!
