About

Handmade Bags with Bite

MinneBites is an independent, artisan-owned business where every bag + case is designed, made, and shipped by me from my home studio in Minneapolis, MN.

MinneBites made its debut on Etsy in January 2011. Almost instantly, my Shark Bite pencil cases were a hit and soon I started selling bags + cases to customers all over the world. MinneBites has been featured on Apartment Therapy, Us Weekly Magazine, Real Simple, Scuba Diving Magazine, Babyology, Cool Mom Picks, Daily Candy, Buzzfeed, Child Mode, as well as numerous blogs and websites.

The small bags that ‘bite’ take their name from the ‘Minne’ in Minneapolis, Minnesota, where they are designed and made by me from start to finish. The materials and fabrics I use are top quality and I source as much as I can from small, independent business owners located in the U.S.

Whether animal shaped or not, each of my designs starts with carefully chosen fabrics that I love. And I always include a touch of the unexpected: unique color combinations and design elements that pop.

I proudly support locally-owned and small businesses in my personal and business lives. In fact, most of my supplies are sourced from small businesses in the USA.
