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.


A while back I talked about my effort to reduce the amount of paper and plastic our family uses in the kitchen. I'm happy to say we've all been pretty good about using fabric napkins and un-paper towels which is just wonderful. 

So I decided to take things a bit farther and give beeswax food wraps a try. I scoured the internet for tips and tutorials on what to do and not do, purchased all my supplies, and got to work.


I was super excited about this project and imagined myself making tons and tons of wraps. And then I started making some (I used the oven method), and quickly realized this just wasn't for me :( as I found the whole process too messy and a bit stressful. I did, however, finish a few wraps but I don't think I did it right and pieces of wax were sort of peeling off when I folded the wrap, ooops.


Now, this was definitely not my shiniest moment and, to my family's delight, I ended up throwing the finished wraps in the trash. I am, however, super happy I gave it a try. Because how would I know I didn't like making beeswax food wraps if I didn't try it first, right?

So here's to trying new things, and to failing as well. Because it's all part of the process :)

Wishing you...
