By Sonríe is a small local business based in Chicago that specializes in making handmade bags and detailed interior art. I'm an avid observer and lover of nature, so much of my inspiration derives from the mass variety of nature's shapes and forms. My mission is to manipulate materials and provide a sense of "Earth" and uniqueness as you touch, look and utilize my products during a cycle in your life. "Hold on to me or give me away, but show me a smile in the process," say all of our products.
