About

two hands, ten fingers & one big heart. out of something small-like a dream- vast things can come.

I’d like to think out of something small, like an acorn, anything by way of a hope, a dream, or an aspiration, can become something significant, like a mighty oak tree. This is mine, out of my vigor and passion. There’s something about using your strength and creativity to make something happen; it's a sense of gratification that is inspiring, exciting and moving.

They say little acorns become mighty oaks. For the longest time I was a shy and soft spoken girl who used her creativity as her voice. As a young girl I watched my mother sew and create, it was magical to sit beside her and learn. It gave me the tools to be confident. It also taught me about working hard and turning an aspiration into reality. She gave me the tools to start a career, feel empowered to pursue my dreams and confidence to know I was good at what I did.

I love fashion but I don’t love the price tag attached to it. I don’t think we have to be slaves to labels; individual style is something we all know money can’t buy. My collection is for the woman who has her own unique sense of style: she is excited by rare vintage finds, uses her closet as her own styling tool, covets great pieces that will give her longevity and knows that sometimes it’s just one great accessory that can make the look. I have designed and handmade each and every handbag in my shop with that woman in mind.

My intention is to create a space that women, like myself, can visit and feel like that “pretty thing” is attainable. A place where they can get a handcrafted, stylish bag that doesn’t come with a big ticket price. I wanted to create items that were thoughtfully designed and well-crafted but reasonable. My 13 years’ experience in accessory design comes with extensive knowledge, I have traveled the world, worked at some of the leading accessory company’s in Manhattan and still I find it hard to wrap my head around a $1200 bag? My lifestyle simply does not support this type of purchase. I am a mother and wife trying to lead a simple and chic life, it’s not impossible to be and do both.

In a sense, I am designing for myself; I am creating bags that I want to carry and creating them at a modest price point. Every style is always inspired by a unique thought process, I’m thinking about movement, color, trends, shapes and materials. I create all my own patterns, choose my fabrics and trims and sew every single handbag myself. From start to finish each and every bag is created with a lot of thought, care and passion.

I have to thank my parents, my family, friends and my muses (my sisters) who have all empowered me. A special thank you to my sister Gabriella who helped me throughout this process- her innate touch and eye has been the key to making this all come to fruition. Much thanks to my family for always being my biggest motivators and supporters, you are my heart, my everything. I hope you will enjoy looking though my collection and keep returning to my shop to see all my new styles added. Thank you for taking the time to visit and hope to see you around soon.

All my best to everyone, always.
Teresa
