The Faces Behind Our Bags
NAME OUR BAG AFTER SOMEONE YOU LOVE
Since the beginning, our founder Paulien has named the bags in our collection after people dear to her heart, in both her personal and professional life. In this blog we want to introduce to you some of the faces behind our bags and tell you about their connection to our brand.
We also want YOU to help us name a new style of bag have in the making. We’re asking our followers to comment on Instagram and tell us WHO you would name an O My Bag after and WHY. The winner, picked from our comments, will name a new bag in our permanent collection AND receive one once it’s released next season.
Emily | Named after Emily
One of our bestselling bags is named after someone close to our founder Paulien’s heart, her younger sister. Emily has inspired our brand in many ways over the years. Passionate about fashion and social media Emily did an internship at O My Bag and worked for a year in our Amsterdam store before moving into her dream job at a PR agency. She’s always been vocal about the new styles she loves and is almost never out and about without an O My Bag on her shoulder.
Lou’s Big Bag | Named After Louise
Our founder Paulien has known Louise since university. She is the proud owner of an O My Bag from our very first production run (which she still uses). Paulien named the Lou’s Big Bag after Louise because of her big personality and even bigger smile. Over the years Louise has been a great friend and support to Paulien and even worked in our same office space when the company first began.
Jessica / Jazzy Jess
Jessica has been working with O My Bag for the past five years in our production team. Jazzy Jess was released in 2014 and Jess herself is the proud owner of not one but two colors (which she uses all the time). Over the years Jess has grown into the Production Manager position for which she travels to India twice a year to work with our producers and make decisions about the projects we want to support.
Loes / The Lucy
New mother, Loes, has worked as our Sales & Finance Manager since 2015. She has recently returned to the office since giving birth to beautiful Sallie. Lucy was named after Loes in 2016 and is the kind of bag that adapts to every scenario, just like Loes. Coming back to work after giving birth to your first child can be tough, but Loes’s passion for the business and our supportive small team has smoothened the process.
