Experience Nancy's Virtual Tour


My life has been about ‘women’s work’ - sewing, designing patterns and textile prints, weaving, designing, and dyeing. I started this journey in earnest when I ran my own children’s clothing company, selling wholesale, and through my own store in Toronto.

After many courses in pattern drafting and retail management, I went back to school full-time and graduated from the Textile Studio at Sheridan College of Art and Design in Oakville. I then set up a weaving studio and wove silk shawls and kimonos for more than a decade.

Nancy Newman Bag Designer

From my studio in Uxbridge, Ontario, I now create bags and home accessories from my own original designs. Conscious of the environment, I use only cork, cotton and silicone leather.

I take great pride in my work, and believe that straight seams, even stitching and sturdy construction are really important to creating a finished product that not only looks good, but will last. My work is about ‘slow fashion’ where you can feel the hand of the maker, and know that each creation was crafted one at a time, with meticulous attention to detail.
