A line of vegan, locally sewn purses with individually hand painted canvas faces. Each purse starts as a blank piece of cotton canvas which I then individually sketch + hand-paint with superior textile paints. After being heat-set, for longevity, the painting, along with carefully selected, all vegan, fabrics and hardware are given to my local sewing experts, to construct a finished clutch. From antiqued solid brass D-rings and pure silk lining fabrics, to the highest quality YKK zippers, every aspect is thoughtfully designed and made to be used daily.
MY ROLE: Everything. Product development, sourcing custom components, full identity system, social media, working with local sewing factories, custom paintings, etc.
