Gear up for a new year

The holiday season leads toward renewal, or at least imaginings of a clean slate, with all the healthy eating, fitness regimes, and self-care that entails. Betty Riaz, a former boutique owner who cofounded a yoga studio almost four years ago, has designed a beautiful yoga bag fashioned from hand-embroidered Indian textiles to help you tote your new gear. Signaling the launch of the Stil Studio lifestyle line, the fully functional, double-zip mat carrier with adjustable vintage leather shoulder strap even comes with a removable wristlet for those (not-so) incidentals. Mecca bag, $348 at Sports Club/LA, 4 Avery St., Boston, 617-375-8200, and Stil Studio, 227 Legacy Place, Dedham, 781-407-9642,
