The story of the custom made feminin leather tote bag:
My name is Isabel and I would love you make the tote bag for you.
I have attached several designs that I would like you to go through then let me know which one you prefer.
I've attached some pictures for reference as well.
May I have the name 'Nimu' to be engraved at the top of the bag?
Noted and this is possible.
We will engrave the word Nimu no problem.
Do you wish it to have a top zipper and a cloth lining inside if so plain or Kitenge?
Let me know.
Otherwise I will be happy to start this
No, I don't want a top zip, I'd like for it to be open like the last picture I sent. Yes, I'd like a simple kitenge inside for the lining.
How long will it take to make and be ready?
It will take about 4 to 5days...as I have to source for the materials.
Looking forward to making the bag.
I am happy to start on this project.
Trust you have been well.
I have managed to purchase the leather and other materials to start off the project.
Kindly check the leather skin I have used .
I have also designed the bag and started stitching hoping to get the bag ready for you soonest.
I will keep you posted more.
Please find the attached photos for the bag production and the final bag.
Awaiting your feedback.
I love the bag and the lining, it looks beautiful!
Thanks so much I know you will even love it more when you see it in person.
Hope you’re well. This is Virginia, I’m supposed to do your bags branding. Here’s a photo of tags I’ve done for you to refer to then we can discuss.
I charge 250 for embossing and it can be done in a mater of minutes as soon as the work is confirmed.
Looking forward to hearing back from you and apologies for the delay.
Love and light
I like the tag that’s black leather.
Ok perfect. What do you want it to read?
I will use leather similar to the one that has made yours.
Love and light,
The embossed part will be this size. If you give me the go a head I’ll cut and stitch it
The initials are occupying a very small space. I would suggest making 2 names full and then 1 be an initial
Have the initials and add something else, maybe like a date
Cause we remove the patch that’s already there, we’ll need to stitch another one of the same size and at the moment, it’s not proportional.
If we replace it with a small one, the parts that had been stitched will have the stitching marks so we’ll need to put a patch the same size as what’s there.
There it is. Kindly review and revert. Thank you
