The Adeline Purse in a limited run of Hunter Green. This color is hard to find and when I do, it doesn’t stay in stock for long. So if you want to treat yourself to a new bag for spring (it will last you through all seasons I promise) get it!

I am constantly on the hunt for Hunter Green leather, as I love the way it looks. It’s old school classy.

For Spring, I’m keeping this gorgeous Olive color for the Nazca Purse and Wristlet. I love this leather because of how rich this color is. It’s so dynamic with golden undertones and a pretty, earthy green top layer. The leather itself is so much softer and buttery, which makes it a joy to sew and work with. It’s not a regular color, but I think it works as a nice statement piece and looks great with black! Check it online, I just updated the website 🙂

Spring/Summer color palette for the Nazca Purses headed to American Craft Council next week. If you’re in Baltimore Feb 22-24 let me know and I’ll get you a ticket to the event! If you’re already attending, come visit in booth 517.

I’ve been working like crazy to get ready for ACC Baltimore. A lot of people have asked about what I use to sew the leather, so here’s a video of me making a Nazca Wristlet.

Oh Spain, please take me back, I already miss you. Dreaming of warm little haunts with wine and pinchos on this rainy Bay Area day. I’m in the studio working in some limited run colors, pics to come soon! . . . . #martine #martineintheworld #travel #spain #bayareamade #imadeyourbag

So it’s the new year and there are a lot of new people that are part of the Martine community, so I should probably re-introduce myself. I’m Sarah, and if you have a Martine bag, I made it. I designed it, I cut it by hand, I stitched it by hand, and I put a whole lot of time and care into it. Each piece is a little part of my heart, and I take my craft seriously. So thank you for being in this space with me, and using what I make! I have been making bags for 8 years now, and am always striving to create the highest quality craftsmanship. Martine is in a growing phase and there will be a lot to come this year, I’m so excited to share with you. Apart from me really hating to be in photos, I love a good snack pack, so this photo really sums me up. Ima get out of the way, take the photo of the cheese and wine. Anyway, thank you for being here, and I can’t wait to share what I have in the works with you for 2019!!! . . . . . . #foreverbag #handmade #madeintheusa #bayareamade #imadeyourbag #leather #martine #martineintheworld #leatherbag #firstvacationineightyears #slowfashion #ethicalfashion #smallbusiness #solidbrass

I’ve been away from my studio making bags to help @artistmrblack with another mural. We are in Barcelona this time, and although very cold, it’s been awesome! I’m traveling with the Adeline Handbag and honestly for every day and travel, this is by far my favorite size. I have all the essentials + travel extras and it’s still not too bulky. I can even paint a mural while wearing it. . . . . #handmade #leather #foreverbag #imadeyourbag #martine #martineintheworld #solidbrass #mural #leatherbag #travelbag #bayareamade #madeinusa

I took the last two weeks off from social media, and work in general. It’s been the most time I’ve taken off in the last 8 years since starting Martine. I am rested, my house plants have been cared for, and I’m ready for 2019! I have a lot in the works, and excited to share! If you ordered a piece after Dec 10th with the knowledge of it being delivered in Jan, I am working on your bag this coming week, thank you so much for your patience, I seriously appreciate it. And I appreciate all of you for making 2018 the best year so far!
