Story behind Alula Inspired

 

Welcome to Alula Inspired, where every stitch tells a story, and every creation is a labor of love.

My name is Katherine (Katarzyna) Kaminska and I'm thrilled to welcome you to my little corner of the world, where handcrafted artisanal handbags come to life. I'm not just the owner of Alula Inspired; I'm also the maker behind every piece you'll find here.
My journey into the world of fashion started long ago, fueled by a passion for creativity and a love for design. With formal training as a fashion designer and years of experience in garment construction, I've honed my skills to bring you something truly special.

Every stitch, every texture, every intricate detail—it's all a reflection of my journey, my experiences, and the profound love that fuels my craft. Each bag tells a story—a story of resilience, of beauty found in the smallest of moments, and most importantly, a story of love.

The name "Alula Inspired" holds a special place in my heart. It's a tribute to my beloved son, Alexander. Alula, as we called him, who in 2019, at the age of 21, left this world far too soon. His passing was a bittersweet reminder of life's fragility and the importance of cherishing every fleeting moment. Through Alula Inspired, I honor his memory and channel his spirit of boundless creativity and inspiration into every piece I create. Portion of every sale is donated to aid youth mental health organizations.

My dear friends, I invite you to join me on this journey of love and artistry. Let's weave stories, spark joy, and celebrate the beauty of handmade craftsmanship together.

As you browse through the pages of Alula Inspired, I invite you to not just see the bags, but to feel the love and passion woven into each stitch. Thank you for visiting, and I hope you find something that speaks to your heart.

With gratitude,
Katherine, Owner & Maker, Alula Inspired
