The Beso Bag

One of my true Love’s are handbags  !!   … I came across these adorable, classic handbags a few years ago and knew someday I would be able to share them with my friends ..So in her own words Johanna Penagos tells you the story of her now “It Bag” The Beso Bag .

est. 2008

When I was a little girl, I
used to make purses and wallets out of anything I could get my hands on. I loved to make paper dolls, and create their clothes and their accessories. I’ve always been a designer at heart.

So now, after college and
grad school and a nine year detour as a school psychologist, I’ve come back to what I love,
designing one of my very favorite accessories, the handbag.

With my mom’s hand-me-down sewing machine
and fabrics that I chose because I loved, I started beso handbags
at my dining room table, sewing while my daughter was at school, and my son was
taking his nap, and sometimes, late at night while my kids and my amazingly
supportive husband were all fast asleep. I’ve grown a bit since then, but I’m
proud to say that beso handbags still reflects my passion for design and my love
of fabric.

I call my line Beso handbags.
Beso is the Spanish word for kiss. Spanish and English are spoken in
our home, and beso is a word we use all the time. Often throughout the day, we
ask the kids for besos, or kisses, and tell them we love them. Beso is also a
word that just reminds me that I love what I do, and I’m now doing what I’ve
always loved.

All of the handbags that you
see are my own designs. Now I’m so excited to incorporate my own collection of vintagefabrics into the mix.
Each bag ordered will feature a beautiful fabric from the 1950′s, 60′s or 70′s and will be accented by luxurious faux-suede in acomplementing color. Each vintage fabric is available on a very limited basis, so if you see one you love, snatch it up before its gone.
