Item: Suede Envelope Bag
“My name is Inga, and my husband Arvydas and I are the team behind CORIUMI,” she told Etsy.com. ”We live in Vilnius, Lithuania. Our bags are made to add a special touch to simple looks with unique, attention-grabbing geometric patterns, interesting color schemes and the beautiful textures of leather and suede. Making colorful unique bags with screen-printed designs is our current passion.”
“We met at Vilnius Academy of Arts when we were both were students,” Inga continued. “Arvydas graduated as a graphic designer, and I got into fashion design. Since we both loved the handmade process, we started to brainstorm ways to combine graphic design and fashion to create a product together. Handmade bags are the perfect niche for us.”
“Etsy is a special place. It’s where where a creator meets the rest of the world, and it gives us a lot of motivation to know that our work will be seen by millions,” Inga said. “That kind of exposure obligates you to represent yourself in the best way you can, makes you grow faster, and inspires you to always try to do something today that’s better than yesterday. Etsy also gives you the opportunity to see how your work looks among the thousands of items and designs created by other sellers.”
