Your destination to Modern, Unique, Urban Handbags!

Pursed, an initiative that has been in the making for some time! So many restless nights figuring out how to set up the boutique, what to name it and how to design it! It's an endless journey of improvements not near perfection (according to this girl's standards)! But I'm aiming for a fun and memorable experience for my clients because what you will own is a unique, high quality and cool bag!

A bit about me: I have been a fashion victim since early teens and believe fashion is intertwined with arts and design. Like many, I have a huge admiration for designers who are capable of translating their visions and stories into fashion statements.

With this in mind, Pursed was created to feature exquisite and unique handbags and purses made by independent designers from all over the world. Why? because we all crave freshness and uniqueness. What you can own are concepts to revolutionize your wardrobe with statement conversational pieces. You know, it's like when you go away on a vacation to a new city and are eager to score an original handbag or accessory. Well, that's precisely what I'm doing... to bring that foreign fashion adventure closer to you.

I work very closely with each designer to understand their vision and study their quality of workmanship. There are important things to consider when buying a handbag such as the quality of material used, the stitching, lining and details. Features like this determine the longevity of a purse and I pay careful attention to the details so you don't have to worry about them! As well, the designers care about their brand and client perception which are integral elements a talented designer must respect to reach the highest quality of handbag designs.

Relationship building is the pillar of Pursed Boutique vision. I want you as my client to be happy and proud to carry a bag featured by Pursed. I value your opinion, experience and your voice will be heard. So don't be shy to send me an email with feedback and requests.. I would love to hear from you.

A handbag sparks the birth of a business

My fondness for Bagghy was born almost 3 years ago on a memorable trip to Venice, Italy. As we were strolling along the narrow and busy calle (allies/streets) we came across Bagghy's signature store: well lit, airy and colorful. I fell in love with every single handbag and was impressed with the uniqueness and quality of the collection. I asked the sales lady to reserve the bag (it was the last piece in store) and I would drop by to buy it later on our way back to mainland. It wasn't a hesitation but rather wanting the convenience of walking around Venice without carrying shopping bags - you know what I mean.

On our way back, I realized I forgot the name of the calle while standing in the middle of a piazza surrounded by about 10 calle. At that moment, I realized that the only way to get there is to rely on my visual memory. Luckily enough we found the store and I got my bag.

Three years have passed and I still take the bag with me to work every single day. I cannot tell you how much abuse the bag has endured. Regardless, it still looks as good as new. Now like most women, I dream of a Hermes bag and would worship my spouse if he surprised me with one, but I am in love with my Bagghy bag, and am extremely satisfied with the quality and practical applications of this brand of handbags. It is the type of love which led me to get into handbag retail business and to no surprise, it is one of the best sellers at Pursed Boutique with loyal followers who cannot get enough of it.

I am pleased to be the first retailer and exclusive distributor of this emerging brand in Canada. This is a brand that recognizes the value of uniqueness, high quality and affordability. Bagghy offers a wide range of styles suitable for everyone: driven career individuals, creative, trend setters not followers, practical, worldly persons who thrive on challenges and opportunities.

And that's how our story began... never underestimate the power of travel. Sometimes it not only leads you to new destinations, but also to new destinies!
