Show your love for sharks with this exclusive ita bag designed by Jessica Steele-Sanders. This bitey boi may look fierce, but remember, sharks aren't the monsters that movies make them out to be. All he wants to do is protect your favorite pins in his big, toothy mouth!

If you aren't familiar with ita bags, they're intended to display your favorite enamel pins or other memorabilia (pinback buttons, photographs, keychains) by way of a clear vinyl window. This Kawaii Shark bag is designed for ultimate ease of use, with a front chamber that lies flat when you unzip it and grants you easy access to the special compartment where your pins will live. The lining of the display compartment is a happy pink satin, and a removable pink satin "pin pillow" -- for affixing your pins -- is included with your purchase; however, if you want to change up your colors or you have multiple pin layouts to choose from, you can also cut stiffened felt (my favorite), craft foam, or even scrapbooking paper to fit for a quick, thrifty pin board.

The bag's storage compartment is 10” tall by 9” wide (at its base) by 4" deep, providing you plenty of room for your phone, wallet, and other essentials; there's also a small zippered pocket inside for storing your cash or cards. The display compartment is 12.5” tall by 10” wide, with a triangular pin display area 9.5” tall by 8.5” wide (at the base).

Although the backpack-style prototype is currently pictured, the final form has an adjustable strap that can be fastened to the bag to create a backpack OR clipped on the sides to wear as a shoulder or crossbody bag.

MINOR FLAWED BAGS: Want to save a few bucks? Adopt one of our minor flawed Kawaii Sharks! These sweet babies have small cosmetic issues (like tiny bumps, scratches, or specks on the surface of the material) that are only visible upon closer inspection, and they need homes, too! As always, there are no returns or exchanges on minor flawed products.

I've been oogling this ita bag ever since I saw it was being manufactured over on instagram, so when I saw it on sale I knew I had to have it! The quality is stellar, and it comes with a strap that can change it from a backpack to a side bag, it's super cute! Now I can finally display all my pins and keychains without worrying about damaging or losing them! I am very pleased with my purchase! *(The accessories in my bag's window are not included!)

I LOVE this bag! The quality is great, it is very sturdy, and has ample space inside for my gadgets, gizmos, and thingamabobs. I added two extra felt cut outs inside because I just don't want to pierce the original with my pins. The strap is created to be convertible which I also love--when I get tired of carrying it one way, it's easy to convert to carry another way. This bag is even more adorable in person than in picture and reminds us to show some love to our finned friends. FINtastic product!

My son is forever in love. First year and day of school coming up and his school particularly requires a uniform to be warn on a daily basis. So I wanted to get him something special to express who he truly is and what he likes. His very first backpack in kindergarten. Let the memories begin #covidstyle at least for now 😅
