We had such an insightful meeting with the team behind @bembien! They make the most beautiful straw bags that are intricately woven by artisanal weaving communities from Bali, Morocco and Vietnam. #MCStakesNYC
Sometimes you just have to let the good ones go. I am my own best customer so naturally I’ve been holding onto this vintage woven clutch ever since I found it a couple months ago. Just listed it in our #sundaymarket🌿 section - get it before it’s gotten!
@bembien founder Yi-Mei Truxes took a leap of faith and left a long, stable career in fashion to start her own brand. With #Bembien, her woven bag company, Yi-Mei challenged herself to see if she had the skills to bring her company to life. This meant starting with an online presence on #Squarespace and putting her idea out into the world. See where her passion has led her today – a sold out “it bag” and an online store success. Check out our full interview with Yi-Mei via the link in our bio as part of our original YouTube series ‘Making It.’ @yimeitruxes
