About

Welcome to So Comfy Designs

My name is Randa Roberts, and I'm the Designer-Maker behind So Comfy Designs.

Back in 2012, I got back into my lifelong hobby of designing and sewing, and created some small collections of clothing and accessories that were 100% upcycled. Inspired by Pinterest and the idea of building a sustainable income for myself, I wrote a business plan and evolved to upcycling leather garments into quality custom bags. By the way, I named my business So Comfy Designs because of the early upcycled collections were comfy to wear and I'm proud that it's become my trademark. Every bag and accessory is still so comfy, and very useful.

Leather jackets are a constant source of inspiration to me. I imagine all of the unworn, and unwearable leather jackets out in the world and feel great pride in the fact that I've found an exciting and useful way to repurpose them into custom bags and accessories. I find jackets at my local thrift stores, and receive donations from private individuals. I definitely enjoy the thrill of the hunt for beautiful leather to repurpose, especially during yard sale season!

At this point in time, I'm happy to be making every bag myself, and over the years I've learned what it takes to make a beautiful quality piece. Over the years I've acquired premium hardware and zippers from Canadian suppliers, and try to use up end of bolt satin for the linings. While it's not fast fashion, it's quality you can trust. Each bag comes with my personal warranty for free repairs for the life of your bag (some shipping charges may apply, see FAQ section for more details).

From the moment you place your order, you'll get communication from me and quick notification of when your purchase is ready for pick up (local to Sarnia, Ontario) or ship. I truly appreciate every single order, especially my repeat customers. However, every customer is my favourite customer, and I look forward to making your bag!

At home, I'm a happy wife & mom of two boys and one dog. It's really a dream come true to work from home during school hours, and as my kids grow, they allow me more time to do what I love. Some of my favourite things to do include planning vacations, going for walks with my family, and watching true crime & drinking red wine.

Thank you for visiting So Comfy Designs! Please follow me on Pinterest to view galleries of So Comfy Designs custom work and past collections. Find and follow on Instagram and Facebooks to see production pictures, finished work, and some candid moments. I look forward to seeing you there!

Additional policies and FAQs
CUSTOM ORDERS

Custom orders are always welcome. Whether it's your unused leather jacket, or one that belonged to a really important person in your life, bags can be custom created to your specification. Options to include specialized fabric are always on the table, but most often the bags include the original jacket lining and zippers when they are in great shape. Prices are based on the time it takes for each job, and materials used. Since it's your leather jacket, you provide some of the materials, but studio time and sewing supplies are always added in. Expect a 4-6 week production period as well. BTW, jackets can be mailed (at your expense) and shipped back. Contact for more information.

DESIGNER WARRANTY

Each bag is handmade by my hands, from my designs, using the best materials at my disposal. They are tried and tested, and built to last. I am beyond proud of every bag that leaves my studio and you can expect it to serve you well for a long time. Therefore I stand behind my work and will repair any structural damages that could appear in the first year of use. Should you require this warrantee, send me a convo and I'll get back to you within 24 hours.
