Wedding season is upon us! Taking orders now for spring summer weddings.

Welcome to B.Hive Design! All items are handmade by me in my home studio in beautiful coastal Falmouth, Maine.

B.Hive Design has been an evolving business since I opened in 2009 on ETSY. Initially a business of one-of-a-kind handbags and totes, made from discontinued fabric samples, I have recently branched into wedding party clutches and baby bag totes with matching changing pads and baby blankets. Last year, I introduced a Maine Nautical line that was very successful and have decided to not guarantee they are one-of-a-kind, but rather have slight variations to keep them individually unique. Many people love to get a gift that is "made in Maine" because Maine evokes memories of radiant summer days and a gorgeous rocky coastline. If a bag is one-of-a-kind, it will be noted in the individual description.

Last year, B.Hive Design had a successful wedding season. One bride contacted me to make clutches for her bridal party out of her grandmother"s wedding dress. Check out these creations at my facebook fan page! And please "like" us on Facebook.

My shop continues to offer custom items. Please contact me through this shop to explore all possibilities. I have many quality fabrics in stock. Please feel free contact me if you would like anything in certain colors or dimensions. I would be happy to see if I can create something especially for you! Brides/bridal parties fabric samples can be requested or I would be happy to make bags with fabric you provide.

Please check my "items sold", to see the sort of things I do plus also please check out my facebook B.Hive Design fan page to see some other items I have made that were never listed on ETSY.

About my shop: All items are made by me in a smokefree workroom in Maine. My inspiration for anything I sew is simple - it is the piece of fabric I am about to work with. The shape, size and ultimate utility of the item is inspired by the textile.

I know there are many bag makers on ETSY - but all of MY bags are sturdy and reinforced with interfacing and a canvas liner. Additionally, I like to take into account the proper fabric on the bottom of a tote bag, to protect from dirt - this is what I look for in a bag.

I have made every possible effort to represent my products accurately. Subsequently, ALL SALES ARE FINAL. If there is an item you would like additional photographs of, please feel free to contact me and I would be happy to send additional photos.

LOCAL CUSTOMERS IN PORTLAND, MAINE: If you buy through ETSY and we arrange for pick up, i will refund the shipping.

Thanks for visiting my shop!

Proud member of Maine ETSY Team!
