Very impressed by the high quality and personal touches with this purse. Monday even added a zipper pocket for me for a small charge. It is smaller than I expected, but I can keep a medium sized wallet, keys, sunglasses, hand sanitizer, small pill box, and my phone in the external pocket. Will purchase from this store again!

Hi! I'm Monday and this is my shop. Here's how it goes...

I design each bag. Many calculations and recalculations are required to make sure the design is of pleasing proportions, functional, and uses fabric efficiently. Then I make a prototype, tweak it, make another, tweak that one, and so on until it is perfect.

I acquire fabrics by combing the web for end of run and discontinued high-end upholstery fabrics and suppliers of quality yardages. It's a time consuming process requiring many swatches, but it is the best way to provide gorgeous fabrics at reasonable prices.

I acquire the hardware. I spend a lot of time sourcing and testing my hardware for durability as cheap bag hardware and leather makes me sad. I love to provide custom strap options to make each of my customers' bags a perfect fit.

I sew, sew, sew! Luckily, I have found several talented local seamstresses with the same standards of quality as I who help construct linings for me.

Lastly, I press, inspect, package and ship each bag. I love to pretty up my packages so each of my customers feel special :)

Mixed in there is photographing and listing each bag and the seven thousand other tasks necessary to run a small business. This is the least fun part, but definitely worth it to be able to spend my day making beautiful bags.

Thanks so much for visiting my shop. I hope you find a bag you like :)
