I am an absolute fan of Amy Butler’s bags and fabrics. I came across her bags and fabrics in about November last year and she became one of my main inspirations in starting up Wren.
She started out making small passport sized bags, then started creating surface designs for a friend and feel in love with it. From there she started a sewing pattern bussiness and slowly it has grown into the Amy Butler brand. Now she has a team that manufactures handbags, pillows, fabric journals as well as paper craft products, Soak and Sweet Life Bags. The lines are produced in limited quantites and do go quite quickly.
One of my favourite things about her bags is that they are shipped inside a resusable drawstring tote that can be used for storing the bag or a multitude of other things. I think this is a brilliant idea.
