I wrap myself into every single aspect of Pansy Maiden so I want my bags to be a reflection of my personal values. Social responsibility is huge with me. I believe that all things connect—the way we treat animals, the way we treat our Earth, the way we treat each other—it all connects.

My bags are made to be durable and machine washable (vegan suede is not machine washable). I do not use leather, wool, silk, or materials that are tested on animals. The mills where my twill, cotton, Tencel, and hemp fabrics are made abide by Fair Trade regulations, are GOTS and SLA certified, and the dyes they use are plant-based, non-sulfur dyes (no harmful chemical run-off). The fabric detergent and softener I use is plant-based and ecofriendly.

Don't be bashful, shoot me an email if you have any questions or would like to know more about my bags, my mission, or just to chat! I'd love to hear from you.

P.S. And for those who wonder, Pansy Pauline Maiden was my grandmother. She was a loving mother, grandmother and caregiver. She could play a mean harmonica.


Questions? Convo me. I'd love to hear from you.

Thanks for stopping by.
