It is all unique.

Although the line up of existing bags are one of a kind , opportunity exists for a truly unique bag that also brings the
clients story to the party as well.  If a treasured textile has become moth food, but part of the pattern still remains, Michele can feature that part of your piece and bring that personal story to life again.  If a beloved horse has moved on, but a bridle or halter cannot be parted with, Michele can use that piece of tack as a strap. Your horse will still be with you.
