Brenda with 2 of her creations.
A friend of mine here in Honduras (the mother of my favorite twins) is an excellent seamstress. She has a great talent, and I thought...what a great opportunity to share Honduras with the people at home! So Brenda and I got together and designed some messenger bags and purses. Each one is handmade by Brenda and they are all made from different kinds of fabric and buttons...no two are exactly alike. I pick out the colors and purchase all of the materials in La Ceiba and then Brenda works off of a basic design adding her special touches and style.
It is one of the coolest things I have done here. I would love to continue to build relationships with the women in the villages, discover their talents and then be able to share something tangible with you. If you are interested in knowing more about Brenda and her family or would like her to make a bag for you...just send me an email!
