Summary of my Spring 2010 Intro Collection

   Well, after several months of intense part timing, a lot of over-extended lunch breaks at my job, some late night patterning, and skipped fun times, numerous trips to sewing supplies stores and loads of broken needles later, I have come up with this modest sellection of bags, many of which will see the light of day for the first time later this month at Fab Fair, at the beautiful Heritage Hall, Van, BC.

This bag is limited availability, and mostly for special orders or events. Made of sturdy liquidated upholstery cowhide.


SWAG!  by Jola V. - a quirky and humorous sub-line, featuring small and limited selection of various sized cluthces, wrist bags, pouches and small totes.

All in budget pricing range, often one of a kind. SWAG! was created with an idea to make some of my leatherwork available for varied ages, budgets and tastes of customers. Also it is a great way to take care of left over leather scraps, re-use parts or re-work older styles into something new and unique. All sizes, all materials, lots of fun.

Renata - Slouch bag with gathered sides detail.  (pics coming soon -pls., forgive a busy designer...)Can be worn as a tote or shoulder bag. Magnetic clasp closure, unlined, features one structural pocket in the front. Roomy, bohemian, soft. Internal capasity can be adjusted by loosening gathering ties.
Made of garment cowhide. Great for weekend and time out, especially if you're an urbanite who loves a good countryside vacation...
Measures: Lenghth: 37 cm
Depth: 29 cm
Shoulder strap:100 cm
Tote handles: 75 cm

And that is it so far - hope these little friends bring as much joy to the new beholders, as they did when I made them.

Also - keep an eye out for my up-coming annual line of hopefully clothing and accesories made with new and recycled materials - TRIFFtextiles

best wishes for the new year of 2010 -
With lots of love -
