Alirags produces one of a kind, hand-made accessories. Alirags has moved from a hobby to a heartfelt venture, aiming to create original items for daily use with a spark of fun and creativity.

Alirags patterns of purses, totes, and bags for women and men are named after people from my life. Each item is made from different fabrics and is original down to the separate embellishments inspired as each bag is made. The inspiration for patterns may come from the fabric, from other bags, from necessity, or personal materials. The prototype for one pattern, “Max”, was made from my grandfather’s neck ties.

That brings us to the idea of Alirags custom orders. I love to reuse items; custom orders can be made from personal fabrics such as old neckties, dresses, curtains, or other possibilities.

Don’t be surprised when you receive your bag with a safety pin. Each bag has a safety pin because you never know you may need one –in case a button pops off, your jeans rip, or you get a new band patch and need to put it on right away. With Alirags at your side, you will always have a safety pin and a work of art on your shoulder.

Additional policies and FAQs
I enjoy making custom orders.

Items can be created with use of fabric or materials you own. An example would be creating a bag out of your old sheets, or your grandfather’s neckties. Personal memories can be carried with you in the fabric used for the bag.

I am also open to trade.
