ABOUT LIZ SABO BAGS
I design fabric bags with the idea that you should never have to sacrifice style for function. Combining classically styled designs with bold colors and patterns gives my bags remarkable versatility, making them perfect for any occasion, from a day at the office, to weekend errands, to an evening out. I also understand the importance of practicality in design. My bags are thoughtfully crafted to incorporate multiple pockets, strong closures, well-wearing bottoms, and durable straps that keep pace with everyday use.
Texture, color and pattern are at the forefront of every bag I sew. The fabrics used are hand selected and brought together in distinctive ways to create singularly memorable items. Every exterior and interior fabric combination is made in limited edition batches. Full sized bags and wallets come in three exterior fabric types: microsuede, suiting, or printed canvas.
The microsuedes are the sturdiest of fabrics that I use. With the soft feel of suede, microsuedes are both beautifully rich in texture and incredibly well-wearing. Microsuedes are solid colors and come in a wide range of shades.
Suitings are an extremely versatile fabric. They can be classically sophisticated and playfully modern. Suitings come in boundless patterns such as pinstripe, herringbone, plaid or houndstooth, and are generally in less varied color palettes than microsuedes.
Printed canvas offers the most diverse options. Fabrics range widely in colors, and come in patterns such as floral, geometric or novelty. Bags in printed canvas fabrics are sure to create a bold and eye-catching appearance.
ABOUT LIZ SABO
Liz Sabo is a designer who believes in the value of a well-crafted, American-made product. She currently resides in her hometown of Cleveland, Ohio where the continual growth of independent designers excites and inspires her.
Liz first realized the joy of independent design when she lived in Florence, Italy, where she was captivated by the small shops that dotted the city. In 2007 she lived and taught in Vietnam. There she was able to visit and experience a wide variety of tailor shops and fabric markets, sparking her self-taught journey into fashion and accessory design.
Liz has always been primarily drawn to textile design, finding herself falling for fabric after fabric. In 2009, Liz's collection of "I have to buy this now, I'll find something to use it for later" fabrics had reached critical mass and resulted in her first bag. Soon after, friends and family were requesting purses of their own and from there, the business took off.
Liz's current line of bags has evolved from the desire to fill a function and at the same time evoke the delight that a beautiful object creates. Liz makes all bags in her studio in Cleveland.
