Illy's & Lilly's started in our home. I watched my mother and grandmother sew many things since I was a young child. My grandmother now in her late 70's taught me how to sew with a needle and thread. By age 6 I was making small clothes for my barbies. That's were my growth of passion for sewing came from and the knowledge. As I grew older my mother started teaching me how to use the industrial sewing machines. Then I learned the beauty of creating something out of just two pieces of fabric. That's what has brought us here today! The passion of creating something out of bits. Our bags are built with love and with a thread that is unbreakable! I'm extremly excited to share our love for bags and sewing with you!
