HELSBY, England, May 24, 2016 /PRNewswire/ --

A Cheshire-based couple have successfully launched the company Bags by BLACK which imports lifestyle/laptop bags, designed in Johannesburg, as they were bored with what the UK had to offer. Jill and Roger Maher became increasingly frustrated by the lack of products on the UK market when trying to source a suitable and affordable laptop bag, that would take a 15.6" laptop, tablet, smartphone, cables and accessories but also looked stylish and unique. Jill and Roger Maher's mantra is "Functionality doesn't have to be boring". Roger explains: "The BUDDI and LEXI bags partner properly crafted materials with style, durability and functionality, allowing you to transport your technology and everyday essentials in one bag whatever your style." Designed for business, leisure and travel, Bags by BLACK make a bold and lasting first impression, blending seamlessly into your life, making it easy to take your technology with you.

"The BLACK range was discovered by a friend of ours living in Johannesburg who insisted we try out one of their bags," says director Jill Maher. "So we tried one and loved it so much that we arranged a meeting with the designer Vivienne Black and flew out to meet her in October 2015." Black, who knows a thing or two about designing a great bag, had been thinking about developing the brand in the UK and during the meeting it was agreed that the Mahers could bring the BLACK range to market in UK and Europe. Because the bags had never been seen outside of Africa, a new company called Bags by BLACK was created to raise brand awareness, and after a very successful launch of the BUDDI and LEXI bags at The Gadget Show Live in Birmingham last month, the fan base and press buzz is growing. More Bags by BLACK designs are flying in from South Africa during May 2016 and will be unleashed after a photo shoot in London.
