We have been a fan of Handbago for some time now and it’s an honor to be mentioned on their blog. Handbago is THE site for handbag lovers. They have editor’s picks, reviews, giveaways, designer profiles and so many more ways to connect, browse and find your perfect handbag. We created a bag for Handbago’s review and it was a hit!
Elemental Threads is not your ordinary handbag brand. It’s actually a company that makes custom handbags and pouches … The idea of designing your own bag or pouch is fabulous! Although it can be overwhelming if you don’t know what you want, designing your own bag is a great way to own a bag that completely represents you!

Thank you Lani, Jessica and the whole Handbago team!
We are happy to be included in Woman, Denmark’s leading magazine for women. The magazine covers fashion, lifestyle, health, and relationship issues. They contacted us to be included in the November issue and we were happy to help! Though we don’t speak Danish, an online translator gave us a general idea of the content:
“Design your own Clutch: Your dream dress is in the house, but it’s impossible to find a bag that fits. Do not panic! It’s fun to play designer, and there’s something for every style – from cool camouflage to wild zebra stripes. Click 1: go to elementalthreads.com. Click 2: find your favorite among 12 designs. The cheapest is a pouch, and the most expensive is a shoulder bag. Click 3: Select the materials and voila, now you have designed a bag that can match the festive dress and make you homecoming queen.”
Thank you Woman for the writeup!
We are thrilled to be mentioned in the Washington Post Express! The daily mag covers dining, music, movies, arts, fitness, shipping and more in Washington D.C., Maryland and Virginia. We are featured in a style section:
“Before the recession, a status bag meant something swagged with logos or sewn from an endangered lizard. Now, personal and homemade means more than an armful of Guccis, making Elemental Threads‘ custom hobos, clutches and totes ($16-$136) soft arm candy for hard times. Choose from dozens of fabrics (many of them vintage), wait a few weeks, then sport a sack that won’t scream, “I’m a pack-following label junkie.”
Thank you Washington Post Express for the mention!

Thank you to Amy Price of the Huntsville Fashion News Examiner, who just wrote a wonderful review of eThreads. Not only did Amy mention our custom-made bags, she also jumped right into our recycled t-shirt bags, eco-friendly accessories and ready-to-wear samples. Here is part of the review:
“Flex your design muscles, and do a little environmental good in the process by creating your own handbag or purchasing items from the on-trend and eco-friendly accessories collection on the site.”

We are thrilled to get some love from Daily Candy, the source for everything interesting in food, fun and fashion. Daily Candy mentioned eThreads in their Sept. 16 Weekend Guide:
What: Think paint by numbers for purses. You pick the bag (clutch, shopper, pouch), fabrics (patterned cotton, tweed, canvas), and details (lining, hardware, zippers), and leave the grunt work to someone else ($14-$85).
Why: A healthy way to suppress/indulge in those Project Runway aspirations you’ve been flirting with.
Where: Online at elementalthreads.com.
Thank you Daily Candy! I have been a long-time fan of the site and it was thrilling to have eThreads be a part of it.
