Emma Leather Bag
Karen’s professional journey began with a sewing apprenticeship in Germany. These skills were all around fabric construction. Returning to Canada in the early 80’s, she began making small leather goods.
As a woman designing and crafting products for other woman, her designs are often soft and elegant. At the same time though, special attention is paid to durability and function. Each step of the design and crafting process is important to her, from the beginning where the appropriate leather for the article is used, to the sourcing of the correct glues, hardware, linings and thread. Her handcrafted, unique yet functional pieces are made of fine quality leather selected for its strength, suppleness and luscious colour.
