I have received many requests asking if and when am I going to sell bags, or AKA purses on this side of the pond, so I finally got to the point where I was able to spend some time looking into this. They’re all sketched out, materials sourced, fabrics printed and the samples are being stitched with my right hand as I type with my left. To begin this process though, I did a spot of research into all the styles of purses and the materials used to get some inspiration for my own range. I thought I’d share some of my favourite finds with you today and look forward to introducing my new collection in the next few weeks.
Presenting the artists and handy crafters: The idea of using sails to make modern bags is awesome by Rieter8 , I love the cute clutches by Lolis Creations, a gorgeous leather pouch by Milk and Honey Handbags useful so many purposes, such a lovely bright fabric print in the yellow purse by Womens Girl and the gorgeous bags from Belgium designer Tree Size Verse make great use of old grain sacks.
