Ah Makiko, you are a handbag saving grace. Literally, you are. Thank you very much to those Melbourne sisters who founded Makiko, and who had a vision grand enough to add style, substance and common sense together. Just search for Makiko hangers on Google, and you will see a variety of different sources in which to buy one of these hangers. Further information is also available on their Facebook page.
Another Makiko godsend - the keyring.
In addition to making and distributing handbag hangers, Makiko have also come up with a stylish keyring holder that you can perch against your handbag. That's right never forget your keys again. You now have a sparkly silver star to thank for that. As in one of these images, the writer is using a Makiko keyring holder on a classic vintage leather handbag inside an elevator after leaving the office for the day. Otherwise this is just one great keyring, and of course fashionable too. Then again, Melbourne is the fashion capital of Australia after all.
Now back to the hangers. That's it, you have done the hard work by reading some restaurant reviews on WeekendNotes or on a similar site on picking the right place to eat out. What about your handbag? You don't want it on the floor do you? Also not where your handbag can easily gather dust at the bottom, or someone could just snatch it while you're in food trance while eating and having a quality conversation with a friend, partner or family member. That way your Makiko is a friendly, fashionable reminder that your 'best friend' is not too far away. Whether the table is wood or marble, Makiko delivers. Their hangers are versatile and fit even on the thickest of tables, especially in the food court area at Melbourne Central. Even on some tables at bars, and even in the office...the Makiko hangers are a real godsend.
The Makiko handbag hanger comes in a beautiful pouch.
A butterfly version is also available, otherwise the one pictured is fantastic, and comes with its own cute bag. Regardless of the size of your 'investment' ladies, the Makiko hangers are suited to all different handbags except for clutches. Now that's clever.
