Bag Me Out

Bag Me Out. Original handmade bags by Gabi.

Gabi McInerheney makes beautiful, handmade bags and pouches in original designs from her studio here in Sydney. Originally from Germany, Gabi moved to Australia in 1989. She's sure her love of making must have been with her from the cradle, lovingly encouraged by her mother and grandmother because ever since she can remember she was making things, and the craft/art lessons at school were always her favourite. Gabi's mum and grandmother were constantly knitting or crocheting so she learned so much from them. Later on she discovered a love of sewing and began to sew her own clothes. This led Gabi to an apprenticeship as a tailor in Germany.

Gabi says "Fabrics and wool are my passion and I have started to experiment in natural dyes as well, like avocado, turmeric, and pommegranate.
I try to honour my German heritage whenever and however I can. I especially like to incorporate fabrics and trims from Germany in my designs.
For example I love to work with 'Westfalenstoff' and "Manglecloth". Westfalenstoff is a fabric that is printed exclusively around my hometown in Münster/Westfalen and Manglecloth is a 100% vintage linen fabric which was used in the olden days in Germany on "Mangles" (big rollers to iron the garments).

The wooden stamps I use are hand carved in Germany using a technique called "Blaudruck", blue print, because the main color used in Germany is blue. "Blauweisschen" creates the most beautiful designs for the stamps.

Gabi tries to visit her homeland at least once a year to visit her family and stock up on different and exciting new fabric plus a few bits and bobs.
All her beautiful designs are made with love and she hope's you like her collection as much she had fun creating it.
