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.


Hello, happy Friday to you all!

I had grand plans for this week. I was going to be productive and totally on top of my game! And then my son came down with the flu, which then turned into a pneumonia, which of course meant all my plans went out the window and my productivity dropped to almost zero :(

I did, however, do a bit of sanity saving sewing while he took a nap the other day and made myself this chunky drawstring tote bag.  


I've had this Cloud 9 barkcloth in my stash for quite some time and it felt wonderful to finally turn it into something useful. I love how sturdy this fabric is, perfect choice for a tote bag, I think :)


I wanted this to be a quick make, so I used cotton canvas for the lining (no need to use interfacing this way) and added a large slip pocket on the inside.


And, I added a leather tag to the front of the tote. I know I said it before, but I really love adding leather and rivets to my bags and pouches these days.

I love how this tote turned out, it will make a great new home for my on the go knitting project.



And then yesterday I made a patchwork version of the same tote bag. It's fun to see the same pattern interpreted in different ways, isn't it?

Thanks...
