Sallyann Marron trained as an industrial technologist and was sponsored by the clothing industry during her degree. Working in the clothing industry was short-lived upon graduation, however, and subsequent jobs in politics and international marketing followed. The combined genetic pull of a great-grandmother, grandma, and great aunt, all of whom were tailoresses and seamstresses, meant that a return to making a living by way of the sewing machine was inevitable, and Sallyann’s Handmade Bags were born in 2014.
The bags are individual creations that combine high-quality oilcloth from around the world, and recycled denim gleaned from charity shops across the Mid West of Ireland. The designs are simple, useful, practical and beautiful. Each bag is made to the highest quality standards to ensure it is long lasting and will not let its owner down.
Sallyann’s Handmade Bags are created in a small sewing room overlooking Doo Lough and the Atlantic Ocean in West Clare, Ireland.
