Please join us on First Friday for October ArtWalk. We'll be featuring local handbag designer, Jillian Darnell. She has been creating one of a kind handbags using vintage fabrics and animal friendly faux leathers for the last 9 years. Each handbag begins with an original hand drafted pattern, then is cut, sewn and finished in her home studio on Bainbridge Island.
Jillian's handbags focus mostly on using vintage fabrics and salvaged materials, but her side business is creating one of a kind handbags with prints that appeal to her fellow animal loving friends. Jillian and her husband share their home in RollingBay with their two boxers Zeus and Penny and cats Spirit and Shadow.
