About birchandivory

Sales 493
On Etsy since 2014

I always found it difficult when it came to shopping for a new bag. I could never find what I was looking for. Maybe I was being too picky. They all seemed too blingy, too cheap, or too expensive. I wanted something simple, yet fun and functional. That's when I decided to bring out the maker in me and create my own.

My name is Karen and I am a self-taught sewist. I love the outdoors and our Earth, that's why I am inspired to use leather and other natural fibers whenever I can.
