Spotlight On NW Creative: S N A P design

You know what’s missing today? I do. An abundance of quality-obsessed craftsmen who put love into the things they meticulously make. Oh, they’re out there, but they are the exception, not the norm (even in a place as quirky and hand-made as Portland).
Which is why it brings me pleasure to introduce you to an artisan who will hand-craft a custom laptop bag, a tote, iPod Wallet or makeup/coin bag for you.
Our friend, Michelle Kline, started S N A P design in 2004 with “just a shoulder bag pattern, a fine art degree, and a lot of ideas.” Since then, her work has made lots of people happy and been featured on the TODAY SHOW, Daily Candy, Seattle Times and in several other media outlets.
Her bags are constructed from an assortment of colorful vinyl, decorative top stitching and complimentary fabric lining. The ever-changing combination of vinyl, thread color, stitch pattern and lining makes each bag one-of-a-kind. Plus, S N A P bags are durable, waterproof, and clean up easily with soap and water.
