About

Hello,

My name is Mimi. My love for designing and creating things with my hands has led me to create Iyiami Handbags. I started Iyiami a few years ago in Corfu, Greece. An island in the western side of Greece which still keeps the Venetian architecture and culture alive. Such a picturesque environment which inspires me daily.

I studied Graphic Design in Athens but soon I realized that this was not the best career option I could have made since not a lot of people back then were interested in innovative and fresh design ideas.

At the same period something happened which changed my life for good, I've met and fell in love with my beloved husband Ioannis. We had many things in common and one of them was our love for handcrafted things. This led us to move to Florence in…

Hello,

My name is Mimi. My love for designing and creating things with my hands has led me to create Iyiami Handbags. I started Iyiami a few years ago in Corfu, Greece. An island in the western side of Greece which still keeps the Venetian architecture and culture alive. Such a picturesque environment which inspires me daily.

I studied Graphic Design in Athens but soon I realized that this was not the best career option I could have made since not a lot of people back then were interested in innovative and fresh design ideas.

At the same period something happened which changed my life for good, I've met and fell in love with my beloved husband Ioannis. We had many things in common and one of them was our love for handcrafted things. This led us to move to Florence in Italy where we both attended classes in an artisan school for handcrafted leather accessories.

The skills acquired in Florence inspired me to create Iyiami. Since the early days of Iyiami I have tried to create and design unique handcrafted leather accessories such as handbags, purses, belts and wallets. All of my leather creations are individually handcrafted by me and I only use high quality leathers from Italian origin known as vitello pieno fiore. I adore bright and live colors and I always try to design fashionable but functional and sturdy leather accessories.

For the last few years our products were mainly sold in Greece where I already have a customer base. Lately I decided to try and distribute them through Etsy. The Iyiami Team consists of myself and my husband who is mainly responsible for the production.

In case you have any questions about me or my products please feel free to contact me.

Best regards,
Mimi & Ioannis
