“It means so much that the panier is handcrafted by talented women. I feel as though I am carrying a piece of art.
I try to stay away from mass produced when possible, as they have little story or love behind them. When love goes into a product you can definitely feel it when you wear it.
The story is the best part, I have great stories to tell people that ask me about my bag. It’s not just from some random store.”
“I was so excited and proud to purchase a handcrafted handbag from one of VBM’s collections for my sister, Nancy, who is an independent business woman herself. Nancy always stands out with her unique sense of style and I knew that she would love to own a bag that supported local women and their heritage, while adding a statement piece to her style. It feels amazing to support local artisans, rather than purchasing items mass-produced in a factory. “
