This is definitely the coolest way to carry water – ever.

Created by environmental entrepreneur Carin Dean-Wales, the MAWUWATER aquasac can be used to carry the water of your choice (tap or filtered or any drink for that matter). Even more convenient, it can be used with a bottle filter (Brita or similar that is attachable to the aquasac nozzle).

The aquasac consists of 3 components: the hygienic BPA-free inner bladder, the nozzle spout and the outer sleeve with handy strap.

The outer sleeve comes in an near unlimited number of options, from recycled denim, canvas, neoprene and jute to crocheted, embroidered, leather and shweshwe cloth. Better still, customize your outer sleeve yourself with beads, buttons, tassels, rivets; you are limited only by your imagination.

Some versions even come with a practical pocket on the outer sleeve for keys, phones and anything else you need to carry along with you (or these can be zipped into the main compartment).

Three lucky readers can each win one of these must have fashion accessories. Email by 27 February Mawu Aquasac give-away in the subject line.

The MAWUWATER aquasacs are available nationwide and retail from R200.
