It's a mother and daughter story. My mother, Tatoufa (that's her nickname) was always very talented in creating beautiful things. She was that mom that would come to my classroom and help the teacher with arts and crafts projects. She is also this kind soul that puts so much love into her work. One day as she was knitting in Paris, I asked her to make me a straw bag for my vacation in Capri. Little did we know that we started her business.
The love that goes into a bag
I believe in energy and the purpose and beauty of each things. When you buy something that was made with love and attention, you radiate this love all around and attract it. It's simple. That's why our bags are so special. The beauty is that they will follow you everywhere. We make bags for all occasions, birth, birthdays, weddings, anniversaries. You can also use them at home as a decor piece. My bags are like a lucky charm that follows me everywhere.
ByTatoufa is 100% handmade, The straw bag itself is made in Tunisia by Ahlem. She makes every single bag by hand. We love to support women in becoming independent and building their own business. My mom then receives the bags in Paris and adds the wording and the details on the handles. It takes approximately 2 to 3 days for her to make a bag.
