In the bag
Has your gym bag or your laptop carrier seen better days? Parkland offers some great, functional styles that make sense for today’s lifestyle. These durable bags and accessories feature clean lines and unfussy details, and there’s a limited lifetime warranty on all products. The best thing, though, is that the exterior of all the bags is made with 100 per cent recycled water bottles. The product-line includes totes, duffles, backpacks and accessory cases, from travel kits to laptop and tablet sleeves.
The Collar Press is a new product that takes over the task of ironing your shirt collars, while inside the clothes dryer. Why take your dress shirts to the dry cleaner when, thanks to this invention by Ontario entrepreneur Michael Mota, the job can be done more easily at home? After washing a shirt, simply snap the Collar Press onto the collar and place it in the dryer. The hot air generated by the dryer will heat up the stainless-steel interior of the product, which will effectively iron the collar while it dries. Each order comes with two Collar Presses.
