Velvet, chenille, tapestry! I swoon over these rich textile wonders. I am always on the hunt for upholstery grade fabrics that provide the durability and tactile aesthetics for each one of kind mimi handbag. Because every bag is an original, I look for sample size cuts and it is often from these remnants and swatches that I recieve inspiration. The way the fabric feels, moves, and sews dictates the construction of the bag.
