In Blue Handmade:
Bags and small leather goods, each with special character
In Blue started in 2008, after a relocation from bustling Chicago to a small farm in Southern Illinois. Mary Lynn bought a sewing machine on the way down, learned how to work it, and never looked back. Going from "I" to "we" with a team of leather working magicians and 50,000+ items in sales, In Blue has gone from one brick and mortar shop to a studio that we call home.
Now located in Asheville, NC, In Blue resides in a converted warehouse studio space in West Asheville. Together they make each piece by hand every day. They start with top grain cowhides, trace and cut their pattern pieces, sew 'em up, stamp down the ink, and ship them.
Mary Lynn, owner of In Blue says her favorite band right now is Father John Misty and Travis, the wholesale manager who gets our order to us, so we can get it to you,enjoys listening to RJD2.
