Discovering the Artists behind handmade

We would like to welcome today’s artist Michelle of Misala Handmade! I discovered Misala several years ago and immediately fell in love with her adorable creations! She makes the cutest little coin purses and clutches and her little animals are just to die for!! The quality is amazing and so detailed and the fabrics are perfectly selected and matched. I couldn’t be more pleased with Misala’s creations! This little pink hippo is my new favorite little trinket holder and I can’t wait to fill her up with all of my tiny essentials!!

If you had one what was the name of your childhood imaginary friend?: I had 4 sisters and a brother. Never had the chance to have an imaginary friend!

What makes your life sweeter?: Crafting!

Why do you create what you create?: In the beginning it was nothing more than a hobby to kill time. But now I am hooked after doing it for 4 years, it will be my lifelong ambition to become a master sewist and designer of bags.

Shop Sparkly Pony
Little Goodall

Live SweetWhy do you create what you create?: I started Misala Handmade back in 2010 when me and my husband were living in Dubai. Growing up in Hong Kong and having not lived in a foreign city before, I was the expatriate wife who had difficulties adjusting to the new life. In frustration, I picked up sewing as a hobby and started making bags and purses from the few purse frames I brought with me in my luggage.

With my husband’s help, I’ve been crafting for the past 4 years for customers from all around the world. We decided last summer that we should take Misala a step further by growing it beyond a hobby. So we moved to Taipei, the design capital of Asia, to launch our workshop.

With my creations I examine and explore the many different possibilities of a kiss-lock purse frame. I try not to think from the traditional angle and make wedding clutches or purses but rather prefer to develop the notion and get creative. Animal shaped coin purses are my best sellers, but they are just one of the many facets of what the metal kiss-lock purse frames can do.
