Best Of Philly!

What an awesome surprise to win Best of Philly for handbags.  Feels like things have come full circle from my days at Philadelphia College of Textiles + Science, studying Industrial Design and wondering what I would do with my life.  Things work out if you just do what you love and follow your inspiration :) Read more about our award and the other winners HERE! Thank you Philadelphia Magazine for all you do for small businesses.
