Innovative Gifts from Scarsdale Entrepreneurs

infinitybagScarsdale innovators are busy creating unique products that will make novel holiday gifts. Check out these new offerings from Scarsdale neighbors and alumni.

Scarsdale native Hannah Fastov has designed a nifty gym/ lifestyle handbag that allows you to go from the gym to work to dinner or drinks with friends without having to stop for an outfit change. Her first bag, the Infinity bag, was born from personal experience and months of research. Complete with a separate shoe compartment, water bottle holder, snap in snap out infinitybag2pouch that can double as a cross body or fanny pack, padded lap top section, interior zip pocket, and machine washable laundry pouch, you will always be ready to tackle your day! The bag is available in all black and black with pink trim. She is currently working on larger version, a 'weekender' bag, as well as a backpack.

The bags are made by women for women. Tassels and hand woven straps crafted by a women's coop in Kyrgyzstan and a woman in Bhutan help women support their families and achieve financial independence. Also, all of the workers on the assembly line are women.

By a bag for yourself or as a gift at www.godashdot.com.
