A B O U T
BIBLE COVERS & BAGS:
- I was awed when I first opened up my new Bible, which was given to us with the advice of protecting it. God himself was speaking to me in an easy to understand language.
- Years later, in a room full of people, I had that same warm feeling when we all got our updated NWT Bible (published by the Jehovah's Witnesses organization).
- At that moment this Scripture took on a new meaning to me:
" I will present myself to you there and speak with you from above the cover. From between the two cherubs that are on the ark of the Testimony, I will make known to you all that I will command you for the Israelites."
Exodus 25:22

... because it seems to me the Bible is our contemporary "ark" containing God's Covenant with man, and when we open up its cover, God speaks with us...
I am slowly learning how to listen, to cherish Jehovah's teachings, his fatherly admonitions, and marvelous promises.

Indeed, our Bibles deserve to be protected while we study them.
When I got the new Bible in a distinctive light grey color, my artistic mind started to imagine how it would look in... pink... black-on black... purple...
The next day I started developing a new design to add to my handbag line:
a functional but beautiful BIBLE COVER BAG which would help my brothers and sisters protect their own NWT Bible in their everyday work in bringing the Good News of the Kingdom of God to others.
Later on, I started making patterns for ALL other Bible publications: these books are special and deserve protection, just as Jehovah protects his precious ones.

MY ARTISTIC STATEMENT
~My beautiful bags are not made of dead animal skins.
Yes, leather can be more durable but what about those dead skin processing chemicals?
We already deal with dye fixants in almost everything we consume... I'd rather allow all animals to live a natural life, and for that reason alone, fabrics are more desirable than leather.

~ I take the extra time to develop superior aesthetic and functional pocketbook designs, testing them out, but most importantly, listening to what you have to say.

~ The handbags I design are Sturdy, Luxurious, Deceivingly Simple, Crazy, Pleasing, Personalized, Practical.

~ Personally, I prefer to buy sustainable items, objects made by human hands, preferably someone with an artistic talent, using natural materials.
