Changing vintage German folk costumes and fabrics into modern and practical bags !
I am and was always obsessed with European folk costumes and fabrics, and I always thought they would make beautiful modern accessories of high quality. At the moment I am living in Germany, and because l could not find work in my profession as an academic in animal genetics here, I thought it was time to materialize my creative crafting dreams.
I love searching for vintage German garments and fabrics on flea markets (off line and on line), and coming home with some precious pieces of history. I developed some bag patterns that are modern and practical, and most of them can be used as handbags as well as shoulder bags; tested it for many months in order to be perfect. Then the deconstruction starts; cutting the garments and fabrics into pieces that are suitable. Followed by the reconstruction part; combining it all together; this is the best part of the job ! My husband bought me a vintage leather sewing machine a year ago; it's a repaired machine from the former GDR leather industry. Gradually it is becoming my best friend !

Born & raised in Holland, called Petronella abbreviated to Peet in Dutch, pronounced Peight (P8) in English. Traditional costumes obsess me. Right now I live in Germany, couldn't find work here in my profession, so followed my creative dreams.
