I love that this bag is one of a kind because I hate seeing everyone carrying the same purse. The handmade quality and workmanship is above anything I've ever seen and the colors are perfectly put together. It has just the right amount of pockets to keep my stuff organized and I love the crossbody adjustable strap. Will definitely buy from this seller again! Her work is amazing!

I bought this moggy cat for my daughter because I love the rainbow colors and she had been wanting one for a long time. She was not disappointed. These are so well made for years of love. The heart tattoo on the butt is especially adorable. I'm so pleased with my purchase and my daughter loves it!

This moggy cat is the most adorable stuffed animal, unlike any other. The craftmanship is meticulous with great attention to detail. I especially love the sweet little heart tattoo on the butt. My son loves sleeping with it and says it's the perfect size for snuggling. Customer service was awesome and shipping was quick. I look forward to buying from this seller for years to come. Thank you!

About

Mandinka Designs is a unique line of handbags, accessories & stuffed animal mutts expertly crafted from reclaimed & recycled suit coats.

Mandinka Designs, the brainchild of Mandy Curl, began in 2005 and has become a thriving business that's run by both Mandy and her magnificent mum, Liz Curl.

Our process begins with the Hunt. We love to go hunting in thrift shops for gorgeous suit coats with fabulous linings and labels. The labels are little works of art in and of themselves. We "ooh" and aah" loudly while people look at the two strange women flipping through the men's suit rack. Once we get the coats home we "fillet" them into the various parts- sleeves, collars, pockets, etc. Then the real fun begins as we collage them into the varying styles of handbags, accessories and mutts.
We love what we do and pride ourselves on our couture quality construction and craftsmanship -- it is the number one compliment we hear from our customers. We hope you enjoy our designs as much as we love creating them!
