A Shift in Career Choice

Each Texstyle piece is 100% handcrafted by Samilia. A few years ago she quit her day job to begin designing, sewing and selling handbags and other small accessories full time. It all started at a West Philly neighborhood festival in 2007 that took place every month – she rented a booth, and started selling her creations. Before she knew it, people would come looking for her and bring their friends! Soon she started looking for more festivals in the area where she could sell her work, as her website gained popularity. After four years in Philly, Samilia and her husband moved back to Memphis, where they met, and she continued making and designing bags from her home studio. She is pleased with all the attention Texstyle has been getting since moving to Memphis and still enjoys meeting new and familiar faces at local festivals. "Memphis is a wonderful place for the arts and a great place for Texstyle," says Samilia.

    Owner, Creator, Designer

    My creativity flows from my Nigerian background and my love of color & materials. I use Nigerian fabric in a lot of my work because it's such a profound part of me. I studied design at Memphis College of Art and Rhode Island School of Design.
