Thoughtfully designed waxed canvas bags, hand crafted in Virginia

I first became interested in bags while I was attending design school. Unable to find any that quite fit my needs, I decided to make my own. After creating my first backpack design ever, I got my Grandmother's sewing machine from my Mom, set it up, and got started.

My first attempt was less than stellar... It just didn't seem to be working right. It didn't take long for me to learn that you need to lower the presser foot for the machine to actually sew! I corrected my technique, and have been at it ever since.

As I developed as a designer and bag maker, I discovered my direction. I aim for my bags to have simple appearances, but still be highly functional and enjoyable to use. I create all original designs, and make the patterns myself. Every bag is prepared by hand from beginning to end using high quality materials.

I began IMR Design in Saint Louis, MO where I had the opportunity to become part of a thriving community of creators. I recently moved to Alexandria, VA, and while I will miss the awesome people of Saint Louis, I am excited to see what the future holds!
