and purses -- and now you can check them out (and buy them) online!
Her shop is up and running at at ninamade.etsy.com, with new stock
added regularly. Please pass along the link to any friends looking
for a stylish, hip, funky, classy, and eye catching bag. Her artist
statement gives a flavor of her work:
Every NinaMade bag is a unique creation. I design and sew each bag by
hand out of "upcycled" materials that I have collected over the past
thirty years. Constructed primarily from vintage fabrics, leathers,
and vinyls, my bags combine contrasting textures, colors, and
materials into original creations. Bags might juxtapose modern
industrial materials, such as deconstructed advertising banners, with
vintage bark cloth, or combine salvaged leather with contemporary
comic book influenced fabric. Designs vary by shape and function,
including purses, messenger, laptop, tote, diaper, and shopping bags.
