For our last #makersxmaelu
post (for this season!) we met up with Meg of @shopmargaretvera and her adorable son in her cozy, light filled home studio!
Meg makes the most gorgeous hand crafted bags and accessories, with much of the line being made from reclaimed leather and sourced within the US. Influenced by the European style of her heritage (Meg was born in Oxford, England!), she seeks out unique materials and handcrafts her bags in the tradition of old world artisans.
We asked Meg to share with us a little bit about her day to day in the studio. She explained that she could be doing anything and everything from unfurling big hides of leather to sewing to packaging. Earlier this year, Meg and her husband also adopted a baby boy! In her words, "being a mom to an infant while running a business has its challenges and rewards, for sure. Time has become more precious than ever and I’ve had to prioritize orders and ordering like never before. At the end of the day, being able to spend time together as a family is always the number one priority."
I had the BEST morning chatting with Meg and meeting her sweet son. Meg does such a great job of balancing the maker side with the mom side. 💓 Check back in tomorrow as we continue the series and ask Meg about her personal style!
