FEEDBACKS FROM ETSY ADMINS AND LOVELY CUSTOMERS FOR MY TRULY HANDMADE WORK QUALITY !

Hi Feyza,

Thanks so much for showing us your work last week. It was so nice to meet you, your husband and your kids! What you do is amazing and you are so inspiring. It was an honor to spend time with you and to hear your story! -Bernadette

Hello hello Feyza,
How great was to meet you in person! I'm so lucky that I got the chance to learn more about you, your story and your business. So thanks a lot for having us! I was really impressed by the high quality of the material you are using, your deep knowledge and the thoughtful details that distinguish all your bags, you are doing a fantastic job! Cheers Francesca.

Dear ikabags,

With her background as an artist, my daughter searched very hard for a beautiful,and artsy yet serviceable bag that would hold somewhat of a heavy load.

Perhaps you have as part of your business objective to bring color and beauty into the mundaneness of everyday life. Well, I was glad to buy your creation as a birthday gift for my daughter . Thank you so much.

Between the quality and design of the bag and the amazing responsiveness and personalized attention that she provided, I really don't think that I'll ever want to buy handbags from anywhere else! I ordered the bag on Friday night, and within only a couple of hours, I had already received a response from her. Although it was the weekend and I had insisted that she did not need to rush, she had the bag made custom to order and shipped to arrive on Tuesday. The bag looks as beautiful as it appears, and the packaging was beautiful and included the personalized touch of some fresh leaves from Paris. Although many items may appear handmade, this is truly a handmade, personalized bag, and I'm amazed at how much personalized attention and care she is was able to give to me as a customer but in reading through other comments that were left, I am certainly not surprised at all b/c my own personal experience echoed the hundreds of others! Thank you ! I have already received several compliments and have been spreading the word! I can't wait to order more!

Dear Feyza,
I received my bag last Monday and I'm delighted with it! It worked so well on a trip we took just last week and it works well for daily use as a purse.

And what a surprise when I was sitting in an Iowa airport for our departure home to Washington, DC when the woman sitting next to me had a bag with a bicycle flap - - it was one of your bags! What are the odds that I would meet someone in Iowa (a small predominantly rural state in the MIdwest) that had your fabulous bicycle messenger/diaper bag! We both commented on how much we love our bags.

I hope to order again from you in the future. Thank you so much for working with me to customize the bag - it's perfect! Best wishes ~ J

I love your bags so much! Mine is like my best friend, great quality and unbelievably tough. I was out in a storm recently and my bag ended up completely drenched on the outside but everything inside was completely dry. So nice to wake up this morning and see you as the featured seller, well deserved!! Rebecca .

This is my 5th bag from Feyza (the seller). She is SUPER nice and helpful. The communication with her was an easy and great experience as always. She does her best to customize your needs/queries, and she responds to your messages fast. The fabric/texture/color is absolutely beautiful; and the craftsman is just exquisite. I also love the key clip and 10 pockets inside. I call Feyza an ARTIST because she truly has a talent. I just can't get enough of her beautiful bags! Thank you, Feyza~ Love your work~ :)

When I saw the picture of this bag at Ikabags, I took my iPad into my closet to see how the bag would work with my summer clothes. It's as if the designer in Paris had been able to look into my closet in Colorado and see exactly what I needed! It's perfect!! And I had no idea that turquoise is stunning with all the colors I wear! The shape of the bag and the texture of the fabric are so sophisticated. I absolutely adore this bag!! Chicest summer purse I've ever had. And I'm charmed by the surprise of three different fabrics on the inside. Thank you!

I was looking for the perfect school bag and wasn't expecting how truly perfect this would be! It's not only handmade in Paris, France (a place I've been preparing to visit since I was a child) by a wonderful woman with love and precision - it's so fashionable and functional at the same time! I waited only one weekend and it crossed the Atlantic and straight to Ventura County, Southern California! Packaged beautifully with ribbon and all! It's also very sturdy and can hold my big binder, a book and my laptop. My boyfriend and I loved it so much (he has an eye for beautiful things) we went out and bought a heavy weight fabric that looked the same as the interior (the Ecru color), he sewed a foam backing to the fabric and created a pen/pencil case!!! That way, no ink or pencil marks can dirty the bag! Creative, a pleasure to talk to and talented - this shop owner is just amazing. I know where I'm getting my bags from now on ;)

This is crazy. I order something from ikabags; and it makes it from Paris to Cleveland in like two days! I can't get a delivery that fast from Indiana! :) The last bag (a Mimosa) that I got from Ikabags was a smash hit as my wife's birthday present. She's been carrying it every day. It's beautifully made; elegant and sturdy. And roomy. She loves it. I'm giving her this one as an end-of-the-school-year gift. It came so beautifully wrapped, that I'm afraid that I'll have to wait until my wife opens it to actually see the bag. I don't want to spoil the gift-wrapping. I have absolutely no doubt that it will be as fine as the last one we bought. BTW... This one was custom made and out the door of her shop in about two days. Thank you!

When I emailed that the bag was a gift for my daughter in law and there were time constraints I received an immediate telephone call from France from the designer, reassuring me that the bag would be shipped that day. I received it, in New York City, the very next day. It arrived beautifully wrapped and ready to go. My daughter in law, a fashion and beauty editor, specifically requested it, so I know it will be well used. In this age of internet big box outlets and impersonal ordering, it's a pleasure to deal directly with people who care. Laura Adams New York

I am in love with this bag for so many reasons: 1. I finally have a bag that can hold all of my things without being too bulky. The well-thought-out interior pockets are of varying sizes and, even when they are all filled, there is still enough room in the middle of the bag for my large water bottle! 2. The fabric is gorgeous and unique, and I love the soft adjustable strap. Photos don't do the fabric justice! 3. The construction is impeccable and professional. 4. It was shipped so quickly... from France to MA in just a few days! I don't see myself carrying another bag ever again. Thanks for the beautiful unique product!

This transaction didn't go at ALL as I was expecting. It was 100% better! I ordered the bag on Monday evening, and it came to me on Thursday morning! Not bad coming to Canada from France! Communication was excellent. The bag is beyond beautiful! I was not expecting the material to feel so soft! Each little detail is so beautifully done! Each inner pocket fits everything I needed a pocket for! This is the most expensive purse I have ever purchased, and I would do it again in a heartbeat! In fact, I will do it again! :) Thank you so much!

Merci beaucoup !

=====
My dreams is started with etsy at 50 m2 small flat , every time I said our living space is small but my dreams , my hard is bigger than this space ,
As a little girl, I was drawing, painting and making doll clothes. I like to take photographs, cook and draw,travel,read,dance and write.

What started as a mere hobby (the embroidery, wood and glass painting works) moved to a new level after the year 2000. After the birth of my second son, I began to spend more time at home and had more opportunities to develop new artistic insights. The positive feedback I received from my friends and the discovery of Etsy motivated me to move on to a professional level. Purchasing a Pfaff sewing machine -now i have 7 sewing machine for different kind of sewing method -enabled me to make embroidered linen coasters and bags. In time, this has turned into the production of more versatile, sporty, colorful and eco-friendly bags.
If you could go back in time, what advice would you give yourself or someone considering a similar route?

Nothing is too late in life, but I wish I would have set up my Etsy business sooner, because my creative ideas do not fit into a 24-hour day. I advise others not to be afraid to leave a day job, because everyone has creative ideas to sell. The most important thing is to be yourself and discover what you can do.
