Sun is needed
been selling the beautiful bags of Marianela
brilliant mind behind Colorado
Craft Chic for
a long time and we thought it was about time to share with you an
interview in which she reveals a bit about her creative process. It
turns out she was really enthusiastic
hope you will find that as inspiring as we did. Let's now travel with
her all the way to the beautiful state of Colorado and begin the
Does your location (“the beautiful mountains of Colorado”)
influence your work in any ways?
from my workroom where I make all my handbags I have an awesome
view of the Rocky Mountain National Park. Being surrounded by
such beauty makes it easy for me to be reminded each day why I choose
to use Vegan and Eco-friendly supplies to make my handbags.
If you only had the choice of having one bag for the rest of your
life, what kind of bag would it be and why?
that's a hard question to answer. I love all the bags I create
in fact each time I make a new bag I have to tell myself that
its for inventory and I cant keep it. However, I love
the simplicity of a slouchy shoulder bag. I actually made one
for myself and I have carried that bag for over a year. Its easy
to sling over the shoulder, its big enough to hold all my essentials
and its black Vegan suede with a green camouflage
lining, what more could a woman want?
When you create your bags do you create them because you can imagine
yourself using them or do you picture your friends or family with
get ideas for my bags from so many things but ultimately I want
my bags to be useful and trendy. My craft is still evolving but I do
try to put myself in the end users shoes and think about what would
make the bag more useful to them. For instance, in the beginning I
only made a few bags with inner pockets, now all my bags have pockets
and some of my more recent bags are being made with tons of pocket
would be the perfect model to represent your brand?
think ultimately my own retail web site would be the best model but
for now I've just concentrated on getting my bags visible and
the best way to do that is to display them where I believe they will
get the most visibility.
which platform do you sell your products ?
currently sell my bags on Etsy, My Green Bag and on consignment in a
local Erie, CO shop. Occasionally, I will participate in local arts
and craft sales.
Do you have a physical shop or do you only sell online?
currently sell most of my bags online. However, I just placed a few
bags in a local Erie, CO shop. I'm hoping to place a few of my bags
in some local shop in Boulder, CO over the summer months.
You create a lot of bags with vegan leather, is that something
important to you?
and Eco-friendly material is important to me because of variety
but its more important to my targeted customers because of its
ecological impact. I don't personally have anything against the
use of genuine leather, I choose to use Vegan because I've
found that I can get a larger variety of colors, styles and
textures by using Vegan, cottons and synthetics interchangeably.
have different bags specific to certain celebrations such as
Valentines Day and Halloween, do you plan to do other similar
tried a few design ideas, some worked out well while others
didn't. I think targeting a special holiday might work for other
types of products but maybe not so well for handbags. I think
Valentines Day and Halloween might be the only two holidays that I
would ever create future bags for. Hearts aren't necessarily meant to
be used on Valentines Day and skulls and crossbones aren't
necessarily used for Halloween alone.
at My Green Bag, we love the idea and being trendy and practical.
Indeed, we want to be fashionable but we don't want to sacrifice the
fact of carrying all of our essentials with us. Luckily with Colorado
Craft Chic no more of that dilemma. You can go and check out these
bags on My Green Bag Website, after all who doesn't need a new
