Spotted! Jenny Chan

Jenny Chan is a full-time producer and every day is a marathon. In the little free time she has, Jen tries to stop and smell the flowers. “In my case, it’s really just taking a breather from real work, and indulging in making my Granny purses,” she explains. “My mom used to be a seamstress, so that is how I got my sewing genes. My first Marimekko purse a couple of years ago, was what got me started. I am art-based and trained in visual arts/graphics design, so my choice of fabrics tend to steer towards bold prints/graphics or strong colours.  All fabrics are imported in small quantities and these include fabrics by Riley Blake, Etsuko Furuya, Laurie Wisbrun for Robert Kaufman, just to name a few. I experiment with various sizes until I get the “perfect fit” for my template, then I cut the fabrics and machine-sew them together, before assembling them to the metal purse frames.”

Jen twitters and FBs about her new purses, and she sells them at The Little Dröm Store . You can also gmail Jen directly. Oh, and she also wants you to know that a woman can never have enough purses. You need one for the coins, another one for cards, one to pack your lunch, and then another one just because.
