It seems to be constructed so well! The material is very thick and durable. I love the waxed canvas too - I look forward to seeing how the distressed look will come along with use! Plus I ordered the product on 7/16 and received it on 7/20! Granted I am in Dallas and it was shipped from Austin, but still - lightening fast! I would definitely purchase from again! In fact, I am eyeballing the men's getaway bag :)

About

Highest Quality Waxed Canvas and Leather Goods - Made in America

My fashion story begins in 1984.

It was my first birthday. I was still shaky on my feet but I grabbed the handles of my Chico baby bag and started walking, trusting I was holding onto something reliable.

An old tradition in my country of birth (Bulgaria) says that when the baby makes her first steps, she is ready to pick her profession. Objects, representing different professions, are set at a low table. The object the baby picks determines what she will become when she grows up. Without any hesitation, I went for the thread and the needle.

Several years later, in first grade and in a drawing class, I was drawing sketches of models in fashion clothes. My teacher asked me: “So, Silvia, what will you be when you grow up?” I simply pointed towards my drawings and said: “A fashion designer.”

I came to the United States two days before my 21st birthday. Several months later enrolled in the International Academy of Design and Technology. I graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor of Applied Science in Interior Design degree.

I've always loved working with my hands and seeing something (a product) coming to live out of raw materials and supplies. Sivani Designs started as a hobby back in 2006, sparked by my need to find an avenue for my creativity.

In the beginning I was making beaded bracelets and necklaces for myself and my husband Ivan. Around that time, with Ivan's help, we put up a website portfolio showcasing my work. Beaded bracelets and necklaces were just the start but my line quickly evolved into fashionable jewelry for men, handmade from high quality materials – genuine leather and sterling silver. This was the real start of Sivani and our E-commerce website.

In 2012 I finally found my true calling and expanded my full fashion jewelry line to include hand-stitched leather wallets and hand-crafted toiletry bags. I am planning to not stop there – I am currently working on a line of duffle, tote, messenger bags.

I am committed to handmade, made in the USA, high-quality products that would last for generations. Because of the nature of my materials (genuine leather and waxed cotton canvas) and the fact that each product is handmade to order, each item has its own unique look and unique soul. I source my materials from American manufacturers and suppliers and work hard to present and preserve the true beauty and the true properties of each textile and each piece of leather.
