About Jo Nelson

A designer based in Derby creating personalised bags for a whole variety of occasions from gifting and parties and bottles to the much loved everyday tote bag.

 

 

Why did you start making your products?

I started making my products as I wanted to provide affordable options for creating personalised gifts that truly reflect the thoughtfulness and care behind them. Our range of personalised bags allows individuals to create meaningful gifts within their budgets, making special occasions even more memorable.

What is your favourite product/collection, and why?

My favourite product is our lunch bag. I love the bold print with the fun quote and the colour combinations available, think they are really stylish. Our lunch bags are also made from 100% organic cotton canvas.

What is your favourite thing about making that you don't get to talk about very often?

I love the design stage! For me this is where i take the customers brief and bring it to life. The level of detail can very much vary in briefs that i receive which gives me the flexibility to really go all out their on the creative side and their brief.

How do you want your products to make people feel?

Whether our products are bought as gifts or for themselves I want them to feel like the creator. Our options allow people to select their bag, colour, design, and personalisation options so they have 'built their bag' to truly to match the person they are gifting too or their own personality.
