I’ve mentioned before how intimidating I find Etsy…there are SO MANY sellers to browse through that my attention inevitably wanders to other things and I never find what I’m looking for. Honestly, most of my favorite Etsy finds have come as recommendations from fellow bloggers and fashion fanatics I interact with online. (I did recently put together a great list of plus-size eco-friendly designers on Etsy…but there aren’t many of those to search through)
So, today, while catching up with fellow Twitter-er and Independent Fashion Blogger Jennine from the Coveted, I discovered my new favorite Etsy seller, SwanClothing; Jennine posted pictures with her new handmade bag and I fell HARD.
I LOVE the first grey louche and envision it as the key accessory to round out a romantic/vintage outfit, but I think it would be just as easily suited to a t-shirt and jeans.
Each of these bags is handmade in Canada using natural/deadstock/overstock fabrics and notions, and industrial strength hardware. Each SWAN purse has a secret embroidered swan, in addition to a quilted rose on the front of the bag. Another of the great details is the braided shoulder strap.
