In the Bag

Our ubiquitous electronics have turned us into power-hungry maniacs, forever searching out an available A/C outlet to keep our phones fed.

Everpurse promises to liberate you from the wall socket – their modular “SmartPocket” integrates with handbags to provide a simple, seamless way to charge your iPhone.

The Chicago and New York-based company has partnered with Kate Spade to produce a line of handbags that feature the Everpurse technology. Each bag includes a small wireless charging mat, allowing the accessory to remain cord- and adapter- free.

“It’s not tech first,” founder Liz Salcedo told us, “it’s a product that you already love and have a relationship with, and the tech just adds an extra layer of benefit. And I think that’s what separates us from a lot of other wearables – they make their tech first, and then think ‘How do we add leather, or pink, to make it more palatable?’ We merge tech and accessory together from the very beginning.”

In addition to Kate Spade, Salcedo told us the company has new collaborations with different brands in various stages of development.

The Everpurse x Kate Spade collection starts at $198. You can check out the full line right here.
