All pieces are creations of  Tori T Yattaw.  Inspired by the Maine coast vibe, long summers or thumbing through vintage books on a lazy afternoon, sketchbook drawings find their way onto luxurious linens, leather and other mediums.  All handcrafted in Maine, each piece is hand sewn, hand printed and artist signed.

While developing Maine Bags & Goods, Tori was the Controller and Human Resources Manager for a manufacturing corporation.  Customers are often surprised that her degree is in Accounting.

Primarily a self-taught artist, her mediums of choice were oils (paintings on huge canvases) and charcoals (many drawings inspired by vintage Vogue covers).  An avid bag collector, it seemed natural to transfer her artwork onto textiles to create her bag collections. The line was originally started as hand painted but the influx of orders demanded Tori to teach herself how to screen print.  The popular Mermaid Collection was inspired by the charcoals of the Vogue covers.

Each piece is meant to be a functional piece of art creating a sleek and classic everyday bag.  And they are all Made in Maine.
