The Designer

The founder and designer of Je Suis bags, Naia Pinheiro, was born and raised in Brazil.

Je Suis translated from French to English is “I Am”. Naia’s high style fashion sense is reflected in every Je Suis evening bag. The designs personify quality and a unique individuality that is evident in every intricate detail.

From a very young age, Naia’s well developed fashion instinct came to light when she began hand crafting doll clothing and accessories from just about anything she could find. She stitched together old scraps of cloth, and hand sewed everything to create dresses and coats for her dolls. Pieces of cardboard were used to mold shoes and handbags, and she carefully decorated each item with bits of glass and shiny remnants. Of course, no doll outfit was ever complete without shoes and a handbag.

All Je Suis handbags must meet Naia’s strict standards of quality and style, before ever being offered for sale.

The handbags must sparkle like the twinkling stars dotting the blackest Brazilian nighttime sky”, she says, “I have always loved anything that sparkles and shines and my bags mirror my feelings”. Je Suis bags are well constructed with meticulous attention to detail, when properly cared for, the bags will last a lifetime.

Naia left Brazil in her 20’s and moved to London to follow her dream of studying fashion design, and to learn English.

When she completed her studies in fashion design at St. Martin’s College, Naia began designing crystal evening bags for herself, which she wore frequently. The bags drew considerable attention from well-to-do Londoners who often approached her wanting to know where she purchased them. Naia then knew she had the foundation for a successful design collection, and she began designing bags for a select clientele who wanted unique bags that no one else had. Voila, Je Suis was born!

Demand for Je Suis bags grew quickly, so in typical Naia fashion, she took a leap of faith and expanded the market for the Je Suis brand. The bags will soon be available internationally at exclusive shops and boutiques, and online at Je Suis’s website.

Je Suis will gladly custom make any color; design and will also special label the bag to your desire.
