Loddelina handbags and more

It all started in 2001, a few years after I graduated from fashion and textile design at University of Ljubljana.
It suddenly occured to me that the most common item in my closet were not shoes like in so many women's wardrobes, but handbags!
Somehow I have managed to bring home a handbag, purse or a tote from every holiday and trip I took. It was time to start making bags myself...

I prefer using single colour fabrics of different structure and feel so I can decorate them myself - with beads, lace, applique or freefoot embroidery, not appearing randomly but following the shape of the bag.
I love fabrics and will also use printed designs when I can complement them with my own hand work. I have recently started adding some small home decor items to my shop, like little fabric house brooches and ornaments.

:: To keep the shipping cost as low as possible I ship all my items in padded envelopes via La Poste France priority airmail
