Upcyled Vintage Sari And Kimonos Transformed Into Beautiful Bags At Stacy Ellis Design

Retired Sari and Kimono fabrics are given new life by Stacy Ellis Design. Shipments of silk fabric from India and Japan are delivered to my home studio in San Diego California. I give the beautiful remnants new life as bags and totes. The silks that I have chosen are dazzling and delightful to the eye. My design aesthetic is to frame the silks with simple patterns that compliment the design and facilitate the functionality of the finished product. Silk is a tricky fabric to cut and sew. After inspecting the fabric for defects, I reinforce the silk with interfacing which makes the silk sturdier for fabrication. I create the bags for personal use well as sell them locally and via Etsy. Each bag is a unique work of art, and that’s why I affix my signature on the label.

Stacy does beautiful work! I love the mix of fabrics and the bead details – each bag is a work of art :). My cross body bag is great – it’s perfect to carry my phone, keys, driver’s license, and a few dollars when I don’t want to carry my heavier and bulkier leather purse.
