We love hearing from you!
We love our Minnie + George customers. You are conscious consumers who place quality above quantity. You understand that by supporting independent designers and makers in the U.S., like us, you are supporting the resurgence of small production and manufacturing in your towns and cities. You're also taking a stand with your wallets in support of hand-crafted goods made with integrity and a high level of transparency in how and where they are made.
That support means everything to us. Minnie + George is a total labor of love, uplifted and allowed to continue by our customers.
We value your feedback about our mission, what we're doing and what we're making. Your messages make our day.
Here's what just a few of you had to say:
" I received the tote kit and have begun working on it. I want to congratulate you on writing fabulous documentation of the process. The instructions are very clear and the photos are incredibly helpful. I am working through the steps without any hitches and can see a great tote in the making.
Also want to thank you for offering kits. This is such a great way to learn without having to invest in all the tools right away. I love the process and will invest in some tools so I can pursue basic projects on my own.
" I just wanted to reach out and tell you how spectacular the class was. I feel like I have enough knowledge in my toolbag to tackle a project on my own. You were knowledgeable, engaging and thoughtful with the process. Thanks so much, it was truly a pleasure!"
"I seriously just adore your company- I rave about it to everyone even though the product speaks for itself!!"
"Since everyone comments on my circle bag, I'm only every buying purses from you now."
"I've been meaning to tell you I received my purse and I absolutely love it. I receive compliments all the time and I've been referring you all over the place. The work you do is really important in advancing equality for women and minorities and I'm so glad we could do business together. I'll certainly keep you in mind for all of my leather goods needs. Thank you!!!"
" I want to let you know that I got the purse on Saturday. It’s absolutely beautiful. I think that the purse is the most beautiful thing that I own! Thank you... "
"I want to thank you for taking the time to teach the Large Tote Bag Class. I enjoyed the class and it was so much fun learning. Taking that class opened my eyes to the time, skills and dedication it takes to make a beautiful bag. The work you do is amazing. I was so proud of myself that I hand stitched a bag that is beautiful and durable. Keep up the wonderful work you are doing! You are an inspiration to me. Thank you and many blessings!"
"Thank you so much for your beautiful handiwork. As a black woman, I'm always looking to support other black woman-owned businesses whenever I can. Thanks for creating excellent goods and for using POC as you advertise your products! It feels good to be seen and represented in the artisan marketplace."
"I love the wallet I received as a Christmas gift and I just ordered the small black cross-body! I get lots of compliments on the wallet and send them right to Minnie & George! Congrats on continued success!"
"HELLO! Congratulations on your anniversary! It must be fantastic to be going strong at 3 years! And you are so amazing for being inclusive of the most maligned subculture in our society right now -- thank you for using hejabi models in your most recent look book -- born Muslim, but not practicing, I am still very aware of how Islam is perceived in a post-9/11 world. Representation matters!! I actually have tears in my eyes as I'm typing this... "
"I just wanted to let you know that I received my purse today and I am so thrilled. It's absolutely gorgeous and the craftsmanship is incredible. I've already received so many compliments and have pointed them in your direction. I'm a lifelong fan--you'll definitely see more orders from me in the future. Thanks again!"
"Best, most versatile, bag I have ever purchased! I feel like Mary Poppins, in that I believe I could pull a floor lamp out of it because it stores everything I need and MORE! The more it "ages" the better it gets! "
"Love my new tote! I received my tote a few weeks ago and it's absolutely beautiful! It sits on my shoulder comfortably and is roomy enough for all the daily necessities. I've received many compliments and have been asked where I bought my tote. When people learn it's handmade in Portland they ask me for your information and I direct them to your site. Thank you for creating such gorgeous and lasting treasures. In an age of mass production it's a joy to see hand crafted items are still being produced with care and attention to detail. Thank you so much."
"Just a quick note to let you know I received my clutch purse and it's even more beautiful than the photos! I am so pleased and proud to be the owner of such a high quality grade personal product. I will be one of your returning and loyal customers."
"Yay! Already two years of owning my first Minnie + George bag and I keep loving it 😍"
"I just experienced (for the first time in a loooong time) the pure joy and thrill of setting my eyes on the perfect accessory. It will accompany me through my days serving function, form, beauty and the ever present reminder of a person who no doubt built this piece of art with love in every stitch. I ADORE my bag. It was worth every minute of the drooling, salivating wait. 💗💗💗 thank you."
"Congratulations on following your convictions and creating such a beautiful product."
"Your belts are flawless! Thank you so much!"
"I just want to tell you my bag arrived and I love love love it. Thanks for your beautiful work. I look forward to many years of slinging it over my shoulder, throwing it in and out of the car, dragging it overstuffed onto airplanes and all the time being confident that it will hold up. I hope this is only the first of many Minnie and George creations."
