We all need something to carry our stuff in when we are out and about, but you get to choose the shell - you are free to SING YOUR OWN SONG!

Hi!
My name is Brandi Bautell, designer behind Maris Rae Handbags. Here is a little bit about me :)
I am married to a wonderful (and patient!) man who has encouraged and supported me every step of the way from the moment I began my Maris Rae handbag line. I am also a stay-at-home mom to our three little boys.
Because my husband was in the military for a number of years, we have endured many moves. While living in Savannah, Georgia in 2004, my husband bought a sewing machine for my birthday. I didn't request one. ..goodness, I didn't even know how to thread one! I had never sewn before, but he knew I had a creative itch and thought I might like one. Once I opened it up and started sewing, I couldn't stop! I found the fact that I could MAKE something so unique and functional with only fabric and thread utterly exciting. Boy had I been missing out!
My main focus has always been handbags, due to the wide range of fabrics (and unique textures) that can be used and the artistic freedom they lend. I have worked very hard to design and produce a quality handbag to be proud of. While living in upstate New York in 2006, I began my line, Maris Rae Handbags. My sister, Raquel, now helps with the sewing and designing. We pride ourselves on the quality of sewing and detail we put into each bag and accessory.

*So where does the name, Maris Rae, come from, you ask?*

Maris Rae is my Momma's name. She has always whole-heartedly supported me in any endeavor I choose to tackle, never telling me I am dreaming too big or trying to achieve the unachievable.

*Where does my inspiration come from?*

All of my handbags are designed and sewn by my sister and I.
While inspiration for my collections come from a diversity of areas, most of my designs and color palettes stem purely from God's awesome gift of nature. I do not believe most people realize the spectacular hues that are present in the world God has created for our enjoyment! From subtle, comfy earth tones to the brightest neons we can imagine - I assure you they have been placed somewhere in this earth by our Creator.
My mind is always churning with new ideas and color combos. Everywhere I look in my world, I see a potential gorgeous handbag made from the hues or textures I behold.
I want every woman to be able to sport a handbag that reflects her personality and gets her away from the hum-drum trends that everyone already carries.

I present to you a piece of functional art - a piece that you will truly love to carry - the Maris Rae Handbag.

I sing because I'm happy. I sing because I'm free!

    Showcasing nature's beauty, I want each piece I make to be not only pretty, but also to reflect something; maybe a LANDSCAPE, maybe WONDER, maybe COMFORT, maybe RESILIENCE, maybe COURAGE, maybe FAIRYTALE ROYALTY. Dream with me and Sing Your Own Song.
