I woke this morning reading a blog post about Red Ruby Rose on Etsy and felt very inspired. Rowena is a bag designer and illustrator form Bristol. I love her story about quitting her day job to open an Etsy shop and focussing her time on creating, designing and marketing her own product.
Every clutch she makes is handmade and uses the finest leathers, silks and frames. The end results are beautiful. Not only do you get a custom heirloom quality product which will stand the test of time but she will color match and she offers layaway! Nice.
She has some beautiful things on her blog and talks a lot more about her process too!
