I began this bag design as a gift for my mom’s 80th birthday. As I experimented with the shape of the bag and flap, the outline reminded me of handbags my mom carried years ago. Growing up, I loved looking at her collection of bags, each one with a matching pair heels.
With much love for my mom, and appreciation for all she taught me about sewing, I decided to name this bag Gabrielle after her.
