Hello, I'm Alex, and I am the person behind 'My Pocket Bag'! I started making aprons while studying to be a designer and working freelance in theatres. I made myself an apron with pockets to hold my sewing equipment for backstage, and My Mum - who was working in a school at the time, (now owner of Elsa Support) told me how useful these would be for teachers!
I designed, made and sold 'pocket bags' all throughout university while studying fashion design, then took a break while I worked full time in the entertainment industry as a designer and project manager. I worked on many high profile TV shows, designed costumes for West End Theatre shows and project managed costumes for Cruise Ships, gaining so much experience that has helped me on my journey as a business owner and designer.
Each product is designed and developed by me, and every product in our shop is manufactured to be strong, practical and pretty! Take a look through the shop, or get in touch with any questions or enquires.
