KeepBags, The Company
To Have, To Hold, To Keep…
My inspiration? Having no patience for stuffing my lipstick and other essentials into my husband’s pockets when we went out for the evening lead me design my own beautiful, functional evening bag. My search for the elusive, chic, “go with everything bag “that was elegant yet practical, and versatile enough to transform from clutch to wristlet came to an end when I designed my first evening KeepBag!
Initially I created intricately detailed, meticulously hand-stitched evening bags, but after filling countless requests for one-of-kind, keepsake bridal bags, I discover I had a passion for creating exquisite heirloom quality wedding bags and accessories.
I love working closely with brides custom designing and sewing their dream wedding bags. I've created bags for over a hundred brides and my collection is a compilation of designs ranging from whimsical to sophisticated and everything between. I use the highest quality duiponi silks and draw inspiration from beautiful embellishments, fabric sculpting techniques, and the visions of each bride. I’ve incorporated flowers and fabrics from bride’s dresses, a mother’s veil, and a grandmother’s broach. Although I have a weakness for the “romantic vintage genre,” I am forever studying bridal trends, blending classic, sophisticated aesthetics and weaving a “forward edge” into each of my designs.
I offer bangle wristlets with most bags. Aside from adding a touch of glam and sparkle, bangles are a unique way to carry a bag and keep hands free for greeting guests, hugging, and dancing. With a bangle wristlet, brides won’t be giving their bag a second thought, because they'll be wearing their KeepBag like a bracelet. If a bride prefers a clutch, the KeepBag can be converted effortlessly by removing the bangles and seamlessly tucking the strap into the side of the bag.
I am committed to creating bridal bags of heirloom quality using luxury materials. I take great pride in extending excellent customer service and providing prompt responses to every customer.
A portion of each year’s profit will be donated to charities and mission projects supported by my local church.
