Created by a husband-and-wife team with a young family of their own, SAVI Direct takes travel bags for men to a whole new level. Their sturdy and well-designed messenger bags function perfectly as a diaper bag, a travel bag, and everyday bag for new dads. SAVI Direct makes a great starter diaper bag for dad that he can then transition into a work or travel staple once his little one is out of diapers. What’s more, SAVI Direct will be at the New York Baby Show on May 14 and 15, at Pier 92 in NYC.
The nation’s biggest show for expectant and new families, the New York Baby Show is a wonderful family-friendly mega-event featuring everything to do with maternity, baby, and toddler. From top products to trusted parenting experts, the New York Baby Show welcomes thousands of expectant and new parents from New York City, the Tri-State area, and beyond!

For someone unfamiliar with SAVI Direct, how would you describe the core offerings of the business?
SAVI Direct is a family owned business that was started by a husband and wife team in 2014. The business started with the core value of creating simple solutions for consumers made in US and offer affordable price to families. Our first product is the SAVI Messenger Bag, a multipurpose travel bag for men that serves many needs from diaper bag to travel bag to everyday bag.
Tell us about SAVI Direct’s background—how did the business get started and how has it grown?
We were going on a family vacation with our two young children and it was then that the idea of SAVI Messenger Bag came to us. After we shared our idea with our family and friends we received positive feedback which led to creation of SAVI Direct, LLC. It has been almost year and a half to bring our idea to life, filing patent protection, creating a prototype and securing a US-based manufacturer. We are ready to take orders and ship SAVI Messenger bags to every family in US and around the world.
What do customers love about SAVI Direct and what should parents know about it?
SAVI Direct was founded by a husband and wife team with a young family that the customer can relate to. Most bags have limited use, while our bag serves as an inexpensive US made solution to wide range of needs, from being a diaper bag, travel bag or everyday office bag with a trendy look. The bag is made with ballistic Cordura which is water resistant and a sturdy fabric and will last for a very long time.
What makes SAVI Direct unique and different from other similar products on the market?
The SAVI Messenger bag is the ultimate travel bag for men. Dads can use it as a diaper bag that has a large changing mat, which can also converts into a sleeper alignment for easy travel with baby. The bag can be used as a laptop bag for busy professionals or as a nice carry-on bag for travel as it meets or exceeds all TSA requirements. This multi-functional bag grows with your family rather than serve one purpose such as a diaper bag and then be retired. Our bag with its trendy look will guarantee customer satisfaction and is an overall good investment.
What can parents expect to see from SAVI Direct at the New York Baby Show and in the future in general?
At the New York Baby Show we are really hoping to show case our messenger bag and share its uniqueness compared to other products in the market. SAVI Direct has big plans for future as we have secured a long term US manufacturer for our products. We are also take orders and ship SAVI Messenger Bags to every family US and all around the world. We are in discussions with several boutiques in US to start carrying our product.
We are planning to run a Father’s Day special discount exclusively for the NY Baby Show!
