RARAMODO bags is a little studio designing bags for women valuing the originality and wanting to express it through the style of clothes. For women who are avoiding mass-produced objects.
All bags were created according to the original RARAMODO project. Every bag is being sewn here, in the RARAMODO studio, with special attention to the high quality of the workmanship and the detail.
You will find here the unique style and design. Bags are being sewn in limited series, designed in order to combine the attractive appearance and the functionality.
Michelle Obama and her youngest daughter Sacha enjoyed a European Vacation in Spain recently. I thought perhaps you might like to take a virtual trip to the land of las pampas and Paso Doble, the Reino de Espana. This first item is the perfect travel tote, whether you’re roaming the streets of Barcelona, or jet-setting in Marbella, which is where the bag’s designer, Martina Masini, resides.
Crochet is definitely one of those arts that can veer into the not-hip-at-all category of the world of handmade. A toilet paper roll cover made to look like a skirt with a plastic doll on top comes to mind. This is not the case with this cool brooch by Paz of Monicacaros.
I am a collector of brooches, old and new, and this one would be a very nice addition. Monicacaros is a made-up name, but the shop has some very real treasures—including a mouse named Roberto (he is Spanish after all).
My daughter is an animal lover, and horses are at the very top of the list. She gets that from her mom. I am terribly allergic to anything with fur, but I still ride horses whenever I get the chance. Thus, anything with a horse on it always gets my attention. I found this drawing by Olga Gal especially captivating. The colors are so simple but the composition is quite beautiful.
I am certain Michelle Obama and Sasha did some shopping, with Secret Service detail in tow, of course. Maybe if they had brought something back from their trip for the conservative media, they wouldn’t have been given such a hard time for stepping foot outside of the United States. How about one of these cute, handmade, plushies by Vega Lyrae? Seems like a good gift for the childish media personalities raising a ruckus. Seriously, Spain did win the World Cup–for goodness sake, shouldn’t someone congratulate them in person?
Sweetgum Handbags is Kim, a twenty-something grad student who works on her PhD in ecology by day, and runs her sewing machine at all hours of the night. She learned to sew from her talented mother Chris, and from the tried and true method of trial and error.
Favorite materials include denim, corduroy, canvas, woven suede, and repurposed upholstery samples. Custom orders are more than welcome. The business is based in the lovely town of Durham in the fabulous state of North Carolina, USA. All Sweetgum bags are designed to be functional, pleasant to look at, and to last you a very long time.
quejimenez /kay’ he-men-ez/, noun, moniker for artist kiandrajimenez.
a boutique of artisan crafts, original art created by kiandra jimenez.
quejimenez started in 2005 after years of me creating art and other crafts for myself, family and friends. it has become my vehicle to sale all that i do from orginal artwork, handbags to quilt and fiber art.
everything i create is out of love and purpose. love of creating and the purpose of spreading love and goodwill.
my hands live to create…so i create.
i am a self-taught artist, who loves to play with all types of materials. i create from a place inside that thrives to find balance, peace of mind, love, and understanding of myself and all things around me. i love to tackle the emotional side of life in my art and hand-crafted bags and accessories.
although, i am new to selling on etsy, i have been creating art and various things for the past nine years. my art work and art bags have been shown and sold in local galleries and the riverside metropolitan museum.
although some may separate my art pieces from my artisan hand-bags, in my heart both are created as pieces of art; the process, the materials, and the media often intersect and overlap.
Someone needs to buy this bag before I do.
