About

Lover of all beautiful and practical

I strive for my bags to be classical, eye catching, so they can be passed from generation to generation, from grandmother to graddaughter. I try to develope as a person as well as an bag designer so every new bag is better than previous. I use high quality upholstery scraps, cotton, satin & silk. Most fabric is out of print and quantity is limited - most items are one of a kind. When those are gone, they're gone forever.
I take great pride in my work and make sure every bag is professionally finished inside and out, with zigzaging, double stitching, attention to details and a lot of ironing for that superb look. A also make one bag at a time, I don't do mass production.

Sewing has a very long tradition in my family. My great-grandfather was selling Singer sewing machines in eary 20th century and that's how the first sewing machine came into my family. I think that iron sewing machine is still somewhere in my uncle's house.

In Spring 2010 I saw a contest for shopping bag and decided to enter. My shopping bag made it into the finals and was bought almost immediately into privat collection. The first unique bags was lost forever, but the idea and desire for making unique bags stayed.

I created Blackbird bags brand in Autumn 2010 from the desire for making beautiful, practical and unique bags.

Blackbirds are very teritorial birds they will hold their territory throughout their lives. I belive women who wear Blackbird bags are very attached to their bag and won't let it go. You can take everything from her but not her Blackbird bag.

Hi and welcome to my shop!

I'm so glad you found me :)

All bags in my shop are handmade by me. Most are unique, one of a kind.

If you would like custom made bag, please feel free to contacting me. I will see what I can do. If I have enough fabric, custom made should not be a problem.

I use high quality upholstery fabric from KA International based in Spain ( http://www2.ka-international.com/ ), because I just love their fabric!! It's quite pricey, but very good quality. I also use cotton, satin, silk and zippers, purse frames, magnetic snaps.

My philosophy around bags is that it's not good enough if they are beautiful, they must also be practical and above all very well made. I strive for you to be happy customers!

Accepted payment methods

  • Pay with PayPal
Payment
I accept Paypal. Please make payment within 24- 48 hours of purchase.
Shipping
I will ship to your paypal address, please make sure it is correct! I will ship as soon as posible, usually within 1 - 3 working days of purchase.

Delivery time to EU countries should take between 2 - 7 working days.
Delivery time overseas should be between 10 - 40 working days.

Postage can sometimes be very slow, especially around the holidays. It can also be delayed due to your Customs.

For all customers outside the EU:
I have no control over additional fees charged to the buyer once a package reaches their country. The buyer is responsible for any and all additional costs such as VAT, duties, taxes, and customs fees assessed as per your country's customs policies.

It is my policy to wait for at least 40 days from the date of posting before I would consider the parcel lost and not just delayed.

It is very disappointing for both the buyer and seller to have a parcel lost by the postal service, but after waiting the 40 days and it still hasn't shown up I will refund the purchase price.
Refunds and Exchanges
I am confident that you will absolutely love Blackbird bags. However, if for some reason you want to return an item, please do so within 4 days of receiving your order. The item(s) should be in original and undamaged condition. You should insure the item to be shipped. The shipping cost is non-refundable in cases of returns. No refunds will be made in case of custom orders.
