Well Loved

Photography Only

Shop Well Loved is ran by an incredible woman named Gianina Gabriel who learned to sew when she was only nine years old. Her interest in fashion started by making clothing design patterns on old gift wrapping paper and transitioned into her earning a BFA in Fashion Design and Traditional Shoemaking from The School of the Art Institute of Chicago.

Growing up on the Southside of Chicago with an appreciation for the “old world” way of doing things, she works diligently to use the best materials and to hand craft each purse with love. As she says,“The things we love should be crafted honestly, and precious enough to be passed on to future generations.”

Every purse has a tag reading, “you are Well-Loved.” In hopes this reminds the owner they are well-loved, no matter what the circumstances.
