Meet the Dream Weavers... March 26 2014

 

Meet the weavers of the Tinalak fabric we use to make our fabulous Dani clutch....these beautiful ladies are from the T-boli tribe in Lake Zebu, Philippines. This traditional cloth is hand-woven made of Abaca fibers which traditionally has three primary colors, red, black and the original color of the Abaca leaves. The colorant of the materials are naturally dyed boiled in with bark, roots and leaves of plants. It is an heritage and believed that the intricate and creative patterns of the Tinalak was seen on their dreams and made it on to work. They can't create a design of the Tinalak if they haven't dreamed of it. They are sometimes called the "Dream Weavers".

Pure talent, tradition and culture....love it!


Mother's Day... March 20 2014

Ale Walsh with her mother

 

Mother's Day must be one of the most special days of the year... at least it is for me! We all have someone we look up to in life, someone we aspire to be one day, and in my case that someone is my mom.


Despite our humble beginnings as a family, my mom always strived to give us the best she could, together with my dad, and she did! Working crazy hours, putting herself last, always leaving her comfort zone to be able to give us better opportunities in life. And never making us feel guilty for all the sacrifices she made in the name of our happiness.

For that, and for many many other things, I am thankful and lucky to have her as my mother. I love you mom! Happy mother's day!

One of the best things about designing your own fashion accessories, is when you see a happy customer wearing your designs... and its even better when they are rocking the look!

The great thing about monochrome handbags is that they can be worn the whole year around, so are very versatile. Have a look at my Caroline bag for this Spring / Summer 2014 Collection here, in my Lookbook.
