The name After Evie tells a story of self love after the birth of my daughter, Evie. Created from my personal story of struggling with low-self esteem, and Binge Eating Disorder - I set out to create a line that makes all shapes and sizes feel radically beautiful just as they are!
I create exclusive collection based sculpted body candles that appreciate the female form in various shapes and colours, as well as incense holders in the shape of bodies, lips, and cartoon characters. Each sculpture is hand moulded and painted by me.
I challenged myself to create my own bags using the best available Canadian sourced leather. I wanted my bags that would last a lifetime. While machine stitching expedites production, hand sewing creates stronger seams. If quick fashion is what you are after, Shonga bags are probably not for you.
