I've been designing and making bags for over 40 years. My styles are simple and functional. What really makes the products is the wonderful fabrics I find. I have an eye for color and design, and I know what my customers like. I look at 20,000 to 50,000 fabrics a year, searching for unusual and beautiful fabrics that will work for me and that my customers will like. It's like a treasure hunt.
