11 teeny-tiny bags and lanyards to tote your TraceTogether token around
Now that TraceTogether is compulsory upon entry to malls, supermarkets and other public places, why not dress up your token with a designer micro bag? It makes for easy access, too.
The implementation of TraceTogether-only SafeEntry check-ins at high risk venues such as malls, workplaces and places of workship has now kicked in in Singapore, which means there’s one extra thing you’ll need to tote around with you – your token.
That is, of course, if you prefer using the token as opposed to the TraceTogether app.
Lucky for us, the micro bag movement is not showing any signs of stopping. While some might argue that these tiny carriers are impractical, they should fit your token nicely. Or why not clip it onto a lanyard so you don’t have to fish around in your bag?
Here are some fashion-forward picks. A friendly word of advice – as TraceTogether tokens vary in size, you might want to check if these bags will fit the version you have.
BOTTEGA VENETA INTRECCIATO AIRPODS CASE
Made from Bottega Veneta’s signature intrecciato leather, this airpods case with lanyard is meant to hold your earphones, but should fit your token too. The leather pouch secures to the lanyard by a lobster clasp, so you can fasten it to your bag or belt loops.
This pint-sized mini vanity case from Chanel is an It bag of the season. It may not fit a phone, but should definitely hold your token, and perhaps even a tiny bottle of hand sanitiser?
