About Designer: Amy Steele Bags, launched in 2006, was borne of a serious handbag addiction, a love of sewing and a desire for a career change. Amy left teaching finance at Dalhousie University and working with a financial risk management consultancy to transform her passion for bags into a full-time business. Although Amy does not have formal fashion training, she does come from a long line of talented sewers; her grandmother was a dressmaker and designer and her mother is an
accomplished quilter, designer and teacher. Each Amy Steele bag is handmade in North Bay, Ontario in a studio overlooking Trout Lake. New collections are designed each year but custom bags are also made to order. Today, Amy is a member of the FARM (the Fashion and Art Retail Market) - a boutique in North Bay specializing in Canadian-made fashion.
