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.



I made a new Alice Purse. And this one is for me, yay!


I went back and forth a bit on which fabric to use, of course. In the end I decided to combine this beautiful Foliage in Black by Sarah Watson for Cloud 9 with black wool for the exterior, and I chose another Cloud 9 fabric I had in my stash for the lining.


This was the first time I worked with wool. It wasn't that different from working with cotton, but I did have to remember to adjust temperature of the iron as too much heat can ruin wool.


And, since I was going for chic and classy with my purse, I used leather handles instead of fabric ones and rivets instead of stitching to attach my adjustable strap. Both of these upgrades actually made the whole process quicker and I absolutely love the final look.


This bag finishes at 11” wide x 10” tall x 3 ½” deep and is just a perfect size for my everyday needs as I no longer have to tote around a ginormous bag as my kids are older now (insert a very, very happy face here). Plus, I really love all the zipper pockets.

Happy sewing, friends. Svetlana
