Our eco-friendly tote bags and accessories have images on every panel—inside and out. We custom embroider each custom handbag with colorful swoops and swirls that compliment the composition of each image. Our sustainable tote bags, eco-friendly handbags and accessories represent true eco fashion.

We handcraft every one of our sustainable handbags with images that run edge to edge, inside and out, and incorporate decorative stitching that matches the composition. Shop our line of custom art handbags or design your own personalized tote bag by uploading a photo and become a part of the creative process.

The decorative stitching on every panel serves both form and function. It quilts the 12 layers together, while adding an element of human creativity to each piece. There is no template- every stitch is the work of a seamstress and an expression of creativity which we hope speaks to you, without compromising the image.
