Design Your Own Handbag
If you could design your own handbag, what colors and patterns would you choose? I am a big handbag fan and I LOVE to find bags with unusual patterns and colors. When the kids were little, I used my diaper bag as a purse. When they were a bit older, I traded in my diaper bag to a large tote bag. Now that the kids are 10 and 13, I knew I needed to quit carrying that big tote bag around, especially since it was virtually empty. I have been using a solid colored handbag for a while and it is so BORING! I need to bring back the woman who always carried funky and colorful bags. You will not believe this, but there is an online company that allows you to create your own unique handbag.
eThreads is an environmentally conscious company in Boston MA, started by Emily Worden. Emily has an MBA in management and has been sewing for more than 20 years. While in college, Emily started her own clothing and accessories line that offered custom made shirts, scarves and dresses, all of which were designed by Emily. Not only is Emily a creative genius, but she is also a proponent of saving our planet. Emily’s goal is to be socially responsible while being accessible and fashionable; two things she has done quite well. eThreads has a 5 star customer service team who are decimated to serving their customers with the most professional yet personable service. If you aren’t sure about which design would work for you, email eThreads and they can assist you with the design process and can send samples at your request.
Eco-Friendly and Fashionable
E-Threads is a company that is not only eco-friendly and fashionable, but ultra-awesome as well! In order to be environmentally responsible, E-Threads uses eco-friendly and re-purposed fabrics and recycled packaging. On the socially responsible side, they are committed to supporting charitable organizations. When I was asked to review one of E-Threads purses, I could not wait! I went to the E-Threads website and I was given several choices for the style of the bag, fabric and hardware. There are so many possible combinations that you will have a lot of fun creating your very own purse! I chose a wrist bag (retailed at $48) with a different fabric on the inside, outside as well as the strap. In 4-6 weeks, your custom handbag will be delivered to you. Initially you will be impressed with the high quality items used to make your purse, but once you take a closer look, you can see that your bag was made with loving precision by one of the talented seamstresses on Emily’s team. This is such a unique company and I can’t wait to see what other goodies they will be adding to their line.
