One of our favorite customers Alycia M. in KS (who recently ordered a diaper bag for her friend Courtney) asked if we could make a lanyard for her daughter to wear to school.

Update: Leather Bags for Patty B. in MA

Do you remember when Patty gave us leather for her new Zippy Purse? She actually sent a lot of scrap leather and asked us to make whatever we could out of it for Christmas gifts. We were able to get very scrap-py (pun totally intended) with the pieces and squeezed out a lot of bags. Here’s some pics of the whole collection. Patty was pleased:

They are BEAUTIFUL! I love them all. You truly outdid yourself, thank you!

We don’t usually work with leather because we support vegan bags but Patty sent us these scrap pieces so we went with it. That said, if you have old leather you’d like turned into a custom made bag we can do it, just send an email to emily@elementalthreads.com.

Another Round of Testimonials

2 packages wrapped upYou guys have the nicest things to say about the quality of our bags and customer service, I just have to share a few of the testimonials. Thank you guys for frankly being so awesome, we’re lucky to know you. 

I appreciate you going the extra mile to make sure this is right.  Good customer service, much less GREAT customer service like yours, is hard to find these days.” – Suzanne L., Cleveland SC

I already love the concept of your company but am really  loving the personal, one-on-one interaction. It’s a small company feel and very refreshing!! I will be recommending your site to everyone I know! Thanks again.” –  Jacqueline B., Montclair NJ

Hi Emily! We got my bag and LOVE it! Thank you so much. Truly. It was really exciting to see our design come to life, and I have used it a lot in the last two days. I’ve gotten at least five compliments on it from people too. Cool, huh?” – Emma B., Los Angeles CA

I received the bags Monday.  They are fantastic!  Three of the bags are gifts and I cannot wait until my friends see them.  In fact, I used the large bag last night at a concert, using one of the large rings (intended to be an option on one of the gift bags) to hold the bag to my belt loop while navigating the crowds.  It was brilliant!  Thank you!” – Amy K., Chelmsford MA

It’s a fantastic bag, for sure, and really suits my needs. It’s holding up beautifully, as I tend to be hard on bags. I love the lining being durable and wipe-down able. I use it for work and long days out many days a week. The only way I haven’t really used it is the oversized clutch, but every other way has been in steady rotation! Including using the short and long straps…great features having the handles and the extendable strap.” – Lindsay S., Somerville MA

Diaper Bag for Shannon H. in NY

My good friend Shannon is crazy pregnant right now so of course I had to rustle up a diaper bag for her. She’s about to be the mother of her third boy so she wanted to choose some superhero fabric “for inspiration on raising all these boys.” I love her fabric choice, even the inside looks a little like Wonder Woman. You’re going to do great Shannon, I know it!

(PS – she really liked the bag – the title of her email was “GAAAaaahhh”)

Kindly Words from You Kindly Folks

My favorite part of working at eThreads is making people happy. (OK, truly, the favorite part of my job is buying fabric, but making people happy is the next best thing.)

wrapped-in-boxWhen you place an order with eThreads, it is reviewed and printed onto a little slip of paper with your name, date of order and bag specifics like fabric, zipper and lining colors. We even check if you wanted the fabric rotated or if the bag is for a lefty, because that changes how we make the bag.

That little slip gets pinned to your bag at every step. After the bag is cut, pressed, sewn, pressed, and quality checked, we remove the little slip and wrap up the bag. We write a personalized note, tuck it into the bag, and wrap the whole package in recycled red tissue paper, brown paper and brown packaging. I imagine the next person who opens the box is meeting their bag for the first time and that moment makes me smile.

The coolest part is hearing it straight from you guys. It’s really overwhelming the lovely notes you write us. I love all the exclamation points, smiley faces, and promise of pictures. I love hearing about the compliments you received and how you told all your friends about eThreads. Truly, making you happy makes me happy and messages like these just make me downright blush:

Thanks so much for the bags, they’re awesome and most importantly Britt loves them! She was really excited to switch bags and start using these ones.  And thank you for sending them faster, we really appreciate it.  And just so you know, Britt said she’s probably going to get in touch with you about gifts for the girls in the wedding party; that’ll probably be in the early spring at some point. So thanks again Emily, you did such an awesome job with this.  We really appreciate everything!” – Rob C., Brewster NY

I love this bag!  I’ve been using it non-stop since I got it.  It’s the perfect bag to hold my laptop, office work, lunch and a change of clothes for the gym.  It’s strong and comfortable too.  Thank you!” – Kate G., Cambridge MA

I love the latest bag that I ordered from eThreads! Your dedication and outstanding customer service continues to impress me. I appreciate all the work you put into making sure that each bag I order is one that I will be happy with. I have received so many compliments and enjoy spreading the word about your wonderful products and service. I can’t wait to design my next bag!” – Kate E., Seattle WA

Hi Emily, I received them and I love them! All of them turned out so well. I can’t wait to show and present them to the girls! Thanks again!” Stephanie J., Austin TX

I received my clutch today and I love it! It was my first order, but it won’t be my last.” – Jessica M., Springboro OH

Boy you were right about my making some good choices! I love the way the wristlet turned out and had a great time remembering all the little choices I made. It was really easy to create the bag and I’m happy with the result. I took it on a road trip this weekend and, as a girl who tends to favor pockets over purses, I really appreciated having this cute little bag. I think that it’s great that eThreads is so polished from top to bottom.” – Katherine M., New York NY
