Welcome to my shop!

Since I was a small girl, I liked perceiving items my own way. I always thought that an object can have several uses other than its “official” functionality. My grandmother gave me the nickname “Madaloo”, since I reminded her of a very eccentric and fashionable woman that lived in her neighborhood.

As a “Madaloo” of my era, I studied at the “University of Arts” in Athens and I was specialized in costume and stage design. Designing bags came very naturally to me and that is how my brand came to life. I thought that the name Madaloo was most fitting and it would be a great honor to my grandmother, who gave me the opportunity to explore my self.

I design and manufacture all the bags on my own. I like working with a lot of different materials but the last couple of years, burlap has stolen my heart. I love burlap, as a material, because it can be rough and fashionable at the same time. Embellishing burlap with different trims brings up the two different aspects of each material, the hardness of the burlap and the softness of the trims.

I decided to open my store on Etsy last year, since I realized that anyone in the world could be a potential customer. I still take care of my customers in the domestic market and of course I always try to bring my brand a step further. Etsy has given me the great opportunity to make that dream come true.

Designing and manufacturing always makes feel happy, free and creative. I really hope that this translates into my work.

With love,

    I studied at the “University of Arts” in Athens and I was specialized in costume and stage design. At university, I was given the opportunity to design and manufacture bags and that is how my carrier in that sector started.
