While I've had many careers and artistic interests over the years, sewing has been a constant in my life. When I began travelling more, I sewed many travel wardrobes, but couldn't find a purse that was attractive, functional and adaptable for the many parts of my day or for travel. Returning from a trip to Italy, I was determined to create my own "perfect purse."
After hours of designing, measuring and sewing, I realized it wasn't the purse that I needed to alter, it was my "stuff" that I needed to corral! After 12 versions, I had solved my purse challenge.
With my invention, I could ignore interior pockets, change purses in seconds, whip out a pen quickly or answer my phone by the second ring. According to the interior of the purse, I could change the configuration of the Purse Perfector to accommodate a backpack, a small bag, a briefcase, or the rolling tote I take on board planes. I was thrilled and all my friends wanted one.
Well-made in the USA
My business philosophy is simple: use good durable fabric and make the Purse Perfector in America (San Francisco), be as green as possible and provide the best, most adaptable purse organizer available. Each Purse Perfector order is hand-packed by a local nonprofit, Easter Seals Work Resource Center, an organization dedicated to training the developmentally disabled in meaningful work for a variety of businesses.
I hope you enjoy filling your Purse Perfector, changing purses as often as you like and knowing where to find everything in your purse! Whatever your day brings, whatever bag you have, the Purse Perfector puts everything right at your fingertips!
