This was actually a bag I made this Spring for Kathy in Greensboro, Vermont. She is a past customer, but this time, the bag is a present for her mom’s birthday.
Throughout the years, customers have told me that they own a Modern Coup bag and have bought another for their mom, sister, sister-in-law, friends or others. I remember one customer actually bought 7 bags (at different times) for all the special women in her life. I am grateful and blown away by their tremendous support.
Kathy had a couple of special requests for this one. She likes the Commuter Bag, but her mom wants a very simple bag. She requested that no front pockets and leather hand-held handles be put on. I had no reservations about this, as I think it would still be a nice and functional bag. In some cases, if I feel that the look and function will be compromised, then I won’t take that on.
Kathy wanted custom colours for the bag. I found this combination really intriguing because it’s quite masculine, but on a bag designed for a female. I liked this selection so much that I made a custom Large Utility Tote for myself.
– charcoal grey
– midnight blue bottom
– brown leather adjustable and detachable crossbody strap
The Commuter Bag comes with 6 pockets, but since we omitted the outside pockets, there’s 4 organizing pockets inside. 2 are water bottle size (great for folded umbrellas, too) and 2 medium sized.
I hope Kathy’s mom likes this one and had a very happy birthday.
