Hey!
 

On December 3rd and 4th I'll be at the California Market Center (downtown Los Angeles) for the Unique LA Holiday Market! Can you believe this year is almost over…crazy right?

SIWEL Girl: Rashida Jones at Rachel Comey's New York Fashion Week Show
September 7, 2016

September 7, 2016

Yes, I can totally see Rashida Jones, the Angie Tribeca star wearing a SIWEL bag!

She is such a SIWEL Girl! Love her style, especially here at Rachel Comey's New York Fashion Week Spring 2017 presentation. Our Indigo Lenox Tote (below) would go great with this look. Her cool haircut and shoes, Yes! 

I'm searching right now for her fashion stylist's contact info...

SIWEL Updates: Best Tote Bags for Fall 2016!

Meet Lenox, she is a gorgeous, fresh and textured Flat Tote Bag!


Lol Maybe I'm bias...but yes I love this bag and think it is one of the BEST designer tote bags for Fall 2016!

Most people who know that I’m an accessories designer know that I thrive in designing leather goods and handbags with cool details. A few months ago I was completely drawn to beautiful, colorful and textured fabrics. This current collection was very natural for me, kind of like going back to my roots. About 10 years ago I designed a one-of-a-kind collection of clutches using this same fabrication. 

I am completely mesmerized by bohemian type paisley, henna art, ikat and floral patterns…just gorgeous! I hope you enjoy carrying these tote bags as much as I’ve loved designing and sourcing these amazing fabrics!

Imagine wearing these stylish, designer tote bags seamlessly to all of the events that you have scheduled on your calendar for this week from art gallery openings, brunch with your friends to shopping at your favorite farmer's market! Oh, and lets not forget about work and school, perfect for carrying your day-to-day essentials like your laptop, tablet, magazines, books and textbooks.

Shop your favorite color now!

EATS: This is my next brunch spot with the girls!

Cliff's Edge ~ 3626 W. Sunset Blvd.~ Silver Lake ~ {323}666.6116

I peeked at the brunch menu on their website and now I'm craving the Brussel Sprouts with a fried egg and the Smoked Salmon with a poached egg. Found this gem on goop and this is what the writer had to say about this adorable place...thanks Gwyneth!  

"This quirky little spot near Sunset junction opened in 2004 meaning that the owners were early East Side dining adopters. The menu is classically good Californian cuisine, but locals really come here for the ambience, which is epitomized by the magical back patio. It's lush, open-air, and definitely a good for a romantic date-night in Silver Lake."

Where are you having brunch this Summer?

#Summer2016 has been a cool one! Moving to Los Angeles from New York City last Fall has lighted my spirit and my material choices. I'm feeling really carefree mentally and it shows in my designing. Drawing close to a lot of colorful fabrics like jewel tones, natural hues and a mix of textured patterns, I'm excited about this new collection of SIWEL Totes!

They are currently being produced right now here in Los Angeles...can't wait for you to see them! Whether you go to brunch with friends, the Farmer's Market or to the beach, they will enhance your style...I hope you enjoy them. #MadeinLA

Houston, my hometown is very supportive and featured my Treasure MaDonna (prior to the name change SIWEL) handbags in several magazines and newspapers including Modern Luxury, 002 Houston, Jones Magazine, Houston Chronicle and Rolling Out. Being able to carry my collections in cute boutiques around Houston in the Museum District, Houston Galleria and trendy Rice Village was surreal at times. I'm still grateful today.

This tear sheet from i10 Media Magazine with Mia Wright on the cover features my collection of leather jewelry and handbags. Jewelry was a byproduct of my handbags because I had so many leather remnants left over and didn't want to throw them away. My Mom was very instrumental in teaching how to make jewelry. Since she is a Jewelry Designer, I would always ask her how to do different techniques that were in my head because I didn't know how to bring them to life. We sourced jewelry findings and hardware from Houston, Los Angeles and New york. That was a cool era in my design career because I worked very closely with my Mom!

Thank you Reginald Rhodes for this i10 Media feature.

This tear sheet from Jones Magazine with Keri Hilson on the cover features a collection of lambskin clutches. They were beautiful, with brocade lining, designed them during the time I lived in an area called Koreatown in Los Angeles, CA. I love Jones, this was actually my second time being featured...thank you Tracey Ferguson!

Being able to carry my collections in cute boutiques around Houston in the Museum District, Houston Galleria and trendy Rice Village was surreal at times. I'm still grateful today.

This tear sheet from Modern Luxury Houston magazine features my first collection of leather handbags including carry-alls and clutches with silver hardware. At this time I was using my real name, Treasure MaDonna for my handbag line and decided to rename the brand years later to SIWEL. I really like working with leather during this time because it was the easiest material for me to to bring my vision to life. I still use leather today, but for my current collection of tote bags (shoppers) I'm really in love with bohemian, ethnic, colorful patterns and textured fabrics.
