When I first found out about Amykathryn bags, I was stoked.  Amykathryn bags are made with animal-friendly faux leather and organic cotton canvas.  Each season the colors and patterns change to keep the shop stocked with the latest fashions for the season.  I love her bags because they are colorful, unique, and functional all at the same time.  For those mamas out there, you know that having a functional AND stylish diaper bag is always so hard to come by, but so necessary for being a fashionable mama.  And what is even more amazing is her My Bag Is Her Bag program to support women in poverty around the world by teaching them how to make beautiful bags.  You will be supporting this cause by purchasing their clutches and bags!

{MEET AMY}

1) Tell us a little bit about yourself and how you started up shop.
I love all things design and graphic print patterns. I was customizing upholstery fabric for interior designers when I decided to create my own handbag line. I merged my fabric design into fashion.

2) What inspires you to create?
Ha! Everything inspires me to create. You’ll have to read/subscribe to my blog to find out.

3) What are your favorite color combinations?
We have a whole category on our blog called For Love of Color – because we love color combinations and going bold and original with the way we can use color, texture and print in our handbag line to really play off each other.

4) What is your favorite ice cream flavor?
That is the hardest question of all… I absolutely love ice cream- it makes everything all better at the end of the day- even if its a wonderful day already! I’m thinking of mint chocolate chip right now- but it really depends on my mood. I like to have at least 3 flavors to choose from in my freezer at all times.
