About Us



Hey, I’m Callie! I’ve always really loved bags. Shoulder bags, tiny coin purses, structured clutches, heck — I can make do with an Easter basket. But after I had my first baby, I quickly discovered that I did not like diaper bags. You know what I’m talking about. There are three components to a great bag: style + function + quality. Despite my best Google sleuthing, I could never find a diaper bag that didn’t sacrifice at least one of the three. So, I decided to create it myself. (You can read the full story on Instagram).

To put it simply: This is the bag you’ve been looking for but haven’t found yet.

So, take a spin around the site and get up close in the shopping gallery. Motherhood is a good 99% out of our control. But the part about schlepping around a bag that doesn’t serve you? In the wise words of Ms. Brown, ain’t nobody got time for that.




Mamalou bags are cut, stitched and hand crafted in Leon, Nicaragua. We are honored to work with an artisan team that commits themselves to excellence, and to delivering a beautiful product with every order. Materials for the bags are handpicked and put through the ringer, as they say, to ensure quality, function and ease of use.

By choosing Mamalou, you’re not only buying a bag, you’re investing in the hands that made it. Job creation and fair wages are two of the ways we’re doing our part to lighten the load around the world.



When not traipsing around in sequined skirts, you can find Callie outside of Houston, Texas, thriving + surviving the chaos of life with her husband Cason and their two sweet kids, Shepherd and Ivy.
