Hi! and welcome to Poppy & Peonies. I wanted to take the opportunity to tell you a little about my story.
From the very beginning, I have always been a handbag fanatic. As a young girl from a small town, I would beg my mother to buy me the latest issue of Vogue. I would run the pages ragged, flipping through again and again, absorbing all I could of this faraway fantasy world. I knew I wanted to be a part of it.
I honed my skills, sketching and sewing bag after bag, as I studied fashion design in Toronto. Soon my passion took me to the U.S where I have spent the last few years designing handbags for global brands such as Fossil, Banana Republic and Aldo. My career brought me all over the world searching for the latest trends, colors and materials. It was a whirlwind.
My heart brought me back to my hometown; I married my high school sweetheart and started a family. We have a beautiful daughter named Poppy. She inspired not only the name of the company, but a quest for functional fashion. As a new mom, I needed practical fashion and couldn't find it. Poppy & Peonies delivers just that- trendy, affordable and versatile bags that can be worn multiple ways to suit the many events in your life. We believe you shouldn't have to compromise style to have function.
Like you, we’re busy working moms, so we wanted to make our products accessible, convenient and bring fashion directly into the home of the modern day woman.
At Poppy & Peonies, we celebrate friendship so make time to catch up with your friends. Have a girl’s night! Shop, laugh and unwind with your nearest and dearest.
We’re a proud Canadian company and believe in empowering women! If you’re as excited as we are with the Poppy & Peonies collection, consider joining our team for a fun, flexible business opportunity.
