The Tracy is a 2-in-1 bag and the pieces must be purchased together. However, you can buy a separate colored clutch that you can use standalone or with your bag.
For our Indiegogo backers, we offered an initial discount for backing early, so we will only accept returns in case of manufacturing defects as stated on the Indiegogo page.

We reserve the right to refuse returns if there is damage of any kind. Customer is responsible for return shipping and initial shipping will not be refunded.

International returns can be accepted as long as they comply with the stipulations above. International shipping for returns is at the purchasers' expense.

The name “Tara” is inspired and named after “Green Tara” the Buddhist mother goddess, who represents action, great strength, and the virtues of success in work and achievements. We felt like this represented the women we were designing for.
We name products after women who inspire us. Our first bag is named The Tracy after Tracy Chou — former Pinterest and Quora engineer and entrepreneur — for her work in diversity and supporting women in tech. Her blog post spurred 250 tech companies to release their otherwise-well-guarded diversity numbers so we could have a real conversation about diversity.
There were two main problems we were trying to address with this bag:
1) The ability to evenly distribute weight when you need it (a backpack), but to look professional when you want to (a shoulder bag).
2) Stopping "bags within bags." Too often we see women carry a smaller bag within a larger work bag because one bag doesn't suit their needs. With the Tracy, you have a 2-in-1 bag, so you never need to again.
