Our beads are individually handsewn and undergo stringent quality checks at our workshop and by ourselves before being shipped to you. However, in the rare case of a bead dropping off, please email a picture of the defect to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com and we will respond immediately with a solution.
The centuries-old technique of beaded bags was given a style fillip and a (much-needed) shot-in-the arm when we married our love of vintage beaded bags with our undying passion for kitsch, camp and everything in-between when we launched our first Flamingo-A-Go-Go beaded envelope clutches into the market in 2014. The market loved it, including our competitors who became fans – we see everything, yes, EVERYTHING. (note to readers: imitation is not the sincerest form of flattery!).
But we stayed true to our vision of creating conversation-piece bags that can express your mood, match your outfit or do both. So, click through to see what suits your attitude today, be it the timeless and traditional, or the wild and witty.
Our handbeaded bags are handmade on sewing frames by skilled artisans. The master beader (yes) transforms our designs onto a template on a CAD machine which is then sketched onto our material, after which we select up to 50 different colours of glass beads and sequins before we start our sampling process. Working with our atelier, we refine our samples to perfection, sometimes up to five rounds of sampling. Only after it is perfected is the entire design fully beaded. Which is why the whole process from design inception to completion takes four to six months.
As different craftsmen work on similar designs, no two pieces are alike, making each piece original and unique. Our work is made using the best quality cut ganta and dana beads which are fade-proof and which are individually hand-sewn into place.
We produce each design in limited quantities and most will never be repeated, so seize the day (or clutch) and don’t hesitate when you fall in love with a design.
