bag business

Yes, sure I also make bags... Believe it or not, I get a lot of ideas from my customers. Many of them start by asking me if I could make this or that for them... the buyer of this specific bag had already bought a few of my items from my online shop and is a huge Grateful Dead fan - she desperately was looking to get a bag made from the same material.

I love making custom things for my clients and will make time, if it seems worth while. Depending on the project they can cost a ton of money though, because they require me to run around town for one piece of ware, but it's always worth it and it inspires me to do more and more... Dear valued customers: Keep it coming, please!

The bag has a life inside as well. Gold leather zipper pulls, a bear charm and matching striped lining...

Looking a bit mean for no reason, posing with my (sadly not mine anymore, it's shipping out tomorrow morning) bag, I guess I was contemplating the cold and the fence and the chain..??

Anyway, I am looking forward to more bags that rock!

Just like the rare Swiss mountain flower Edelweiss - a symbol of prestige and distinction - the clothing brand IDILVICE (pronouced "Edel-vice") was born in the mountains of Switzerland and since then it's flourishing on the concrete of Manhattan and recently even in the rolling hills of the San Francisco Bay Area. However as the spelling indicates, the label is not meant to be associated with too much folkloric alpine tradition, but rather and probably in the contrary, with unconventionality. The IDILVICE label was founded in 1995 by Swiss Native fashion designer Idil from the city of Saint Gallen, Switzerland, who's foundation dates back to the 7th Century and which became famous for their quality textile products, especially embroidery textiles, which are still popular with Parisian Haute Couture designers today. In search for something less traditional, Master Graphic Designer Idil ventured out to New York City where she fell in love with American Pop Culture.
