Would You Wear/Use a FUMI?

What is this? Go on, tell me.

Did you say ring? Bracelet? Napkin ring? Well, it’s not a ring, much less a napkin ring, but instead a FUMI purse hook. Remember those? They burst on to the scene a few years ago, and people started raving… Well, they’ve released a new version of their bag-saving accessory that doubles as a bracelet, folks. This is true innovation. Plus, who doesn’t like to support a family-owned and operated company?

Now, I’ve never used a purse hook, nor ached for something to keep my purse off the floor (purse hatred may be at fault here), but I have to say… I’m intrigued. The FUMI comes in many different styles, and is made from 100% recycled materials.

The silver FUMI pictured at the top of this post is the “Charmed” style. Here are some others:

All FUMI Purse Hook/Bracelets are $24.95. Click any image to purchase!

But first, tell me… Would you ever use/Have you ever used a purse hook? Would you use this one?

I’m leaning towards yes

    Hmm. Yes, probably! the one with the black insert.
    Of course I would never have it on me at the right time though!

    When I was in the UK it would have been handy for those times you’re at a really high bar table & don’t want to put your bag on the floor. They sometimes have their own table hooks but this too would be handy.

    I think the one with the black is best, too

    I’m not sure I’d lay down $25 for one – even one that doubles as a cute bracelet – but the idea of keeping my bag off the floor DOES appeal …

  • These are fab! I must have one!

  • That is so interesting. I’ve never used, or felt the need to use, a purse hook, but these look quite good and the fact that they could also be used as a bracelet is quite cool.

    I use my purse hook all the time! Every time I do I get compliments and questions about it. I seem to carry hobo type bags and they son’t go on chairs so well. These are cute, but I’d wear it as a bracelet mostly.

  • Carrieann

    Yes, yes, yes. I just started using one and wish I’d done so a long time ago. Once you do, you don’t want to put that purse on the floor again. I paid about $11.95 for mine; it’s very pretty and has its own little carry pouch.

  • The first time I saw purse hooks I was definitely intrigued, but I don’t think I’d use one. It’s just one extra thing to carry, and usually I find a way of keeping my purse off the floor anyway (e.g. on my chair, in my lap).

  • Oh yes, I have one from that site and giving another one away right now as part of a giveaway. So helpful to take a break from the purse on the lap bit! The old school ones are cheaper too (I think) but these ones as a bracelet is genious! :-)

    I really love the idea of a purse hanger, I got a leopard print one not too long ago from http://www.hangaccessories.com. I just need to work on remembering to have it on me when I need it haha. What I don’t like is the idea of wearing your purse hanger as a bracelet…imo its kind of cheap looking. I’ll just stick to my foldable one.
