Practical minimal style for travels to next door or overseas

Welcome to may.tree.ark Each handbag is one of a kind and different from the next. Making each one is an unique art, built from scratch. I create each one one at a time, sell and ship. My aesthetic is that I use modern standards to create a timeless functional bag that stays in style for today, tomorrow and into each season. This measure of certainty on how I create with fabric came from my own need for a strong bag. To sum up the style of may.tree.ark is a taste of the olden days with classic, sophisticated fabrics that can be packed up like a mule. We lived in LA for a bit going in on local shops and farmers Market (Hillcrest in San Diego being my favorite) Since opening in 2007 I've moved back to New England and continue to perfect the line I love so much. I hope that they will impress you and yours. I hope you love them just as much.

    I love aesthetic of the old world - days gone by but relived by so many today. A natural simplified way of life. New Englander. Married to my high school sweetheart and mama to a baby girl.
