A Message from our Founder / Designer:
Being half American, half Thai, I grew up between
two different countries and cultures. My parents love to travel and explore the
world, which means I learned early how to travel light! Design and art have been my obsessions since very young age. Every time we go on a trip, I'd always thought of a way to better organize my things. During the trips, I'd draw what we saw and add my own fantasies to each destination as a way to keep my memories of each place alive.
The idea of Borboleta Affair bags was born at 40,000 feet above ground on my flight from Paris back home. After completing
a fashion design program (Italian curriculum) in 2010, I spent the following
summer studying painting and art history in Paris, which allowed me to roam around its charming and
magical cobblestone streets, with paint brushes and sketchbooks in hand. The artist
in me wanted nothing else in the world at the moment.
Wait, but maybe I needed a bigger and a more functional bag to hold all my tools and all the extra things we women tend to carry with us (well, just in case, right!).
Designs and ideas were flooding through my head, but not until I was
alone in a painfully long flight back home at the end of the summer, that the
image of a perfect bag came to my head! I, and perhaps many other women like me, need a bag that's lightweight, durable, with a lot, a lot of pockets, and yet stylish enough to accompany us even in the most glamorous cities in the world.
Et voilà! In
the perfectly hummed noise of the plane, at 40,000 feet above ground, The Borboleta Affair bag label was born!
Today I'm proud to share our beloved bags with you. Believe me, I have extensively used each and everyone of our designs to make sure they are perfect before I introduce them to you. Like any artists, I’d like people who
appreciate my art to be able to enjoy it. This is why I keep the prices at
Borboleta Affair affordable. After all, there’s no middle man here, it’s just
you and me.
I hope that our bags will spice up our old outfits, help you organize your life, and accompany you to many special moments in your life.
Thank you for being apart of this wonderful journey together. Please keep in touch via wonderful world of social media.
