Spotlight on SINBONO: The Fiona Bag Review


**This post contains affiliate links and I will be compensated if you make a purchase after clicking on my links. You can read my full disclaimer here.

SINBONO is a retailer based in New York that carries a wide range of handbags- from shoulder and crossbody bags to mini bags, bucket bags and accessories. 

What sets SINBONO apart from other retailers, is that they use vegan leathers and eco-friendly packaging. 

Let’s take a deeper look at SINBONO’s materials and packaging. 

Most of SINBONO’s bags are made from recycled plastic bottles, while others such as the Emily Belt Bag are made from AppleSkin. 

AppleSkin is a relatively new material made from the leftover pulp of the apple juicing process. 


SINBONO’s packaging is made from GreyBoard paper which is recyclable and biodegradable. 

Unboxing the Fiona Bag: My Review

SINBONO kindly sent me the Fiona Shoulder Bag and upon unboxing, one thing that really stood out to me was the minimal packaging which consisted of a box and dust bag- a nice plus to aid in proper storage when the bag isn’t in use.

I really love the clean and minimal look of not just the Fiona bag, but all the other handbags in SINBONO’s range, which will help increase the bag’s versatility in my wardrobe.

The timeless features like the buckle closure and gold hardware as well as the durability of the bag, mean it’ll stand the test of time in my slow fashion closet.

The Fiona bag measures 10.62″ wide x 3.15″ deep x 5.9″ high, and fits all of my essentials- phone, wallet, mask, glasses, keys and sanitizer- which for a shoulder bag is a rarity. 

The shoulder strap is adjustable with a drop length ranging from 10.23″ to 10.82″. 

This is perfect for my petite frame, since I find most shoulder bags either sit too low or too high when I adjust the length. 

My Overall Thoughts on SINBONO

From a sustainability point of view, I love SINBONO’s use of recycled plastic and AppleSkin materials as well as their minimal and recyclable packaging. 

What’s great about the brand is they offer inter-changeable straps, so you can get a  different look that aligns with your outfit, without having to get an entirely new purse. 

This allows you to get more wears out of your handbag- which is what the slow fashion ethos is all about.

Finally, I love that SINBONO’s products are affordably priced and come in a range of styles and colours, which makes owning sustainable goods a little more accessible.
