No Laptop Required -- Lap Sack® Introduces New Collections for Women Who Want a Bag That Does It All

POUND RIDGE, NY -- (MARKET WIRE) -- November 14, 2006 -- Lap Sack, a manufacturer of elegant bags for the laptop computer, today introduced its Island Collections. The collections are classically styled, Italian leather and Ultrasuede® tote bags with coordinating laptop portfolios, and are bench made in America.

Suzanne Fonarow, Lap Sack founder and designer, commented on the new line, "While a woman's bag is a very personal accessory, most women no longer want to carry a handbag for their personal items, a briefcase for their laptop, and a tote for shopping. They want one bag that can do it all -- without sacrificing elegance. Since the original Lap Sack Tote hit the market, women have said that they carry their Lap Sack everywhere -- shopping, traveling, running errands -- not just to business meetings."

The Island Collections feature several tote styles for use with or without the companion laptop portfolio, which tucks inside the tote for safekeeping. The coordinating portfolio, with a generous lining of faux shearling, provides luxurious protection for the computer. When the portfolio is removed, the tote converts from a laptop bag to an all-around tote bag that's ready to go anywhere, in style.

The limited edition collections feature:

-- luxurious and high-performing Ultrasuede® to make the bag exceptionally durable, attractive and lightweight

-- exclusive fabrics adding flair to the totes' interiors and matching portfolios

-- straps, an overlooked item on many totes, designed to be comfortable, fit over a coat, and stay up on the shoulder

-- cell phone pocket that's beautifully detailed and easy to reach on the first ring

-- leather-framed, interior zipped pocket for small items

-- impeccable workmanship especially appealing to the discerning eye

Lap Sack, currently available from www.lapsack.com, will soon be in a select group of retail stores. A collection of zipped portfolios for men is also available. The Lap Sack Island Collections retails from $155.00 to $445.00. Wholesale prices upon request.
