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, has become a thriving business that's run by both Mandy and her magnificent mum, Liz Curl. Chase, the bratwurst dog, helps out with the business where he can -- usually with security detail, office work and much-needed emotional support.

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 like 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 creations as much as we do!
