Ideas... the look...

   S McLaughlin Unique Gifts started in 2015 with Lilyo's beautiful French tea towels from artist Thomas and his wife Susan Vieth. (see artist info below) The gorgeous towels inspired me to start sewing again! So... now I am a bag maker as well.  I purchase my repurposed Louis Vuitton materials from Europe. I then create many sizes of the most beautiful, high quality, lined bags, using LV repurposed material and pure Vachetta leather strapping.  The result is stunning. Many people ask how I do both, my towels and the bags?  I split my time between Marco Island, FL (winter) and Moline, IL, (summer) when in FLorida, I sell my custom towels and create aprons and pillows from them.  When in IL, I sew my bags. 
I am a retired corporate gal that has chosen not to be retired!  I love to be busy and create and best of all I love the compliments on my very
unique products!!  You can purchase here, or find me in select stores in Naples and Marco Island.  Please scroll thru my site to see my custom towels, aprons and pillows and my bags.
