The creative vision of two young designers – Shadi Askari-Farhat and Su-Lyn Tay epitomizes sexy, sophisticated and instinctive style. Exhilarating free-flowing signature prints and bold solids are alluringly pulsed by flavors of bohemian chic and vintage charm; reflecting the inventiveness, personality, and wit that drives each collection.
t-bags ® started in 2001 as a handbag line after Shadi, a graduate of Boston University, and Su-Lyn, a graduate of Nottingham University in the United Kingdom, met while completing post-graduate degrees in merchandising and product development at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles. They both recognized that there was a lack of affordable yet inventive lines and so, while still in school, they began transforming vintage fabrics, suede and upholstery into stylish, chic and distinctive handbags. Quickly, they began selling to upscale boutiques and department stores, and since then it has evolved into an in-demand clothing line that still reflects their original mission.
