  • About This Artist

    I am an artist from Chicago living in Los Angeles making handmade bags and accessories. OLIVO products were conceived when I took time off from my photography career to look after my daughter who was diagnosed with JRA. My handcrafted pieces have been featured in national commercials for major brands. I handcraft every single item by myself in my home studio in Los Angeles, CA.

  • Q&A With This Artist

    A: I source all my materials locally when possible. For my block printed pieces I draw and carve my own blocks then stamp on fabric to create one of a kind textiles and accessories using organic canvas as well as linen. For my leatherwork I use leather sourced locally and genuine leather. I handcraft every single item by myself in my home studio!

    A: I love handbags and accessories so it brings me joy to be able to create these statement pieces for others to enjoy as much as I do.

    A: The recent passing of my 22 year old daughter has been inspiring me to create by means of 'slow sewing' which is hand sewing aka saddle stitching all my leather goods.
