It all starts with a vision, just an idea. I then transfer the idea on to paper where I begin to think about speific details and finalize the design. While drawing I am thinking about the sewing patterns and process. This is why I draw every side of the handbag. When I am satisfied with the design I move on to fine tuning the colors.
During this phase I pick the appropriate leather, lining and details. I then cut out all the necessary pieces step by step. This is an important part of the creation process and every piece must be precisely cut out. The number of pieces varies for every handbag - it can range anywhere from 8-30 or more individual pieces.
If the given handbag has an embroidered design, then work with a computer and a specialized stitching machine ensues. I create the design of the embroidery in a computer program and then set up the stitching process on the machine. The stitching of the design on to the leather can take up to several hours for more complex pieces.
The final step in creating a handbag is the sewing process. First the lining is sewn in total and then gradually the whole handbag is sewn around it. This phase also includes attaching handles, straps and the metal components of the handbag.
The finished handbag receives its label, we place it into a specialized dust bag and lastly package it into a box with my logo. This is how the wrapped and ready handbag is shipped to its future owner.
This is my second Adriana bag but not my last, for sure! The color is beautiful, a subtle and original olive shade that makes you long for your autumn wardrobe. But the surprise is that it is also the perfect color for cool green spring days! Bravo once again, Dajana, for creating yet another gorgeous dream bag.
