Nina taking her first sewing class

In an attempt of understanding better Ilaria’s explanations and the technical challenges our suppliers are facing I decided that it is about time to take my first sewing class ever!

The moment I arrived this big machine seemed way too complicated for me to ever understand. But under patient supervision and endless trials to pass the thread through the needle I was ready to sew! And honestly, it was so easy and enjoyable!!

Our workshop consisted of sewing a pillow and later a small cosmetics bag. Here you can see me extremely proud of my first sewing results. And I started humming to the melodie ”one day, baby, one day, I can sew the entire business bag for ya” 😉

Creative chaos

Designing a bag comes with endless design changes and new prototypes. We know that some of the most frequent complaints about handbags include the bag being too small or too heavy. So right now we are trying to find the optimal solution of making a bag for you that is as big as possible and as light as possible but still fits a laptop.

With the help of Nina’s (amazing ;)) husband we spent the entire last week drafting and designing the body of our bag. In order to understand the dimensions better we sew felt together to get a better feeling before we move over to leather. Here you can see Mahmoud in the process of sewing and the creative mess we have at home these days 😉
