BIO Bags by Nima are the latest and ultimate in professional kit bags for the experienced freelancers working in beauty. These innovative bags are designed and created by Niamh Martin, Irish MUA and owner of the award-winning brush company Nima Brush. As an active freelance makeup artist in the Irish industry, Niamh saw a niche for stylish and professional kit bags that would hold as much product as possible but in an efficient, space-saving way that won’t break your back!
BIO refers to the term ‘biography’, a term any freelancer will be familiar with. Your biography describes who you are and what you’re about within your professional field. “Your kit bag is also an item we feel describes who you are and what you’re about! It is an item that is completely unique to you, the products you love to work with and what you use to create your most incredible and signature work. No kit bag is completely the same. And so we chose to call this particular range the ‘Identity Bags’. Know your identity and make your mark on your industry!”
The unique design of the BIO bags is a stunning dove grey canvas with rose gold hardware on the zip detail and metal clasps to create a modern and understated look.
“Our BIO bags are designed with the highest quality and heavy-duty PVC, so no cracking or tearing. The piping and canvas material used is designed to hold the shape and weight no matter how much you manage to pack inside. The zip is a strong rose gold steel designed to hold the bag together without separating. The strong outer layer of our bags is see-through to enable you to see all contents of your kit. Fully wipeable interior ensures a fresh, clean looking kit to withstand the highest standards of your industry. Lastly, a fully adjustable strap enables you to work on the go, move around on set or easily stand your kit bags upright on your workstation, whatever works best for you.
“Our bags are suitable for all beauty freelancers regardless of industry. They are adequately designed to suit the needs of makeup artists, hairdressers, nail technicians, beauty and massage therapists, the list is endless! These bags have been tried and tested over a 10-month period with several accomplished makeup artists and hairdressers and have been approved for production based on our findings within this trial time.
“Your kit bag should be an extension of the professional you: Reliable and competent with a just a little bit of sass!”
