Pursesuitz’s founder, Barbara Zabawa, a practicing attorney, was at the U.S. Supreme Court for a case when she learned that while an ID was needed, no purses or bags were allowed. This was not a problem for men who had pockets, but a source of stress and inconvenience for women, whose clothing often has no pockets, or when it does have them, they are barely functional.
“Pursesuitz Pocketwear helps women travel with their essential items on them, rather than in their hand or in an external bag, bringing freedom, equality and confidence,” states Barbara Zabawa. “It offers a versatile, comfortable solution to the gender gap in pockets allowing its user to wear the “suit” as a “purse.”
Pursesuitz is especially useful for people who are active, and when bags are a hassle and inconvenient. The Pursesuitz Pocketwear Tank Top can be worn as an undergarment (like shape wear) or on its own like athleisure wear. It is made with antibacterial, recycled fabric that helps the environment while keeping one’s items safe and germ-free.
