Hi, I’m Lauren, the creative mind behind Limited Production by Lauren Patrell (LP by LP). I started my Michigan based company four years ago as a means of using my artistic ideas to create artful bags, purses, and accessories. My initial interest in fashion design and sewing was sparked by my Nana when I was a young girl.
As a child, she would make me special holiday dresses from my visions. We’d shop for the fabric, pattern and trims together, and she patiently guided me through every decision. As I’m sure you can guess, a 5-year old doesn’t always have great taste, but she never showed any doubt in my designs. In my eyes the dress was always perfect and made with love. As I got older, she taught me the basics of sewing and now we love sewing together.
Today, my passion for sewing and creating is what drives me. It is this love that gets me up in the morning and occupies my brain when I go to bed at night. I get great satisfaction in taking a creative idea transforming it into a sketch and crafting it into a tangible item that now serves a purpose.
I believe we are all unique individuals with a desire to express ourselves through our personal style, which is why I only offer products in limited quantities of fabric combinations. My pieces are created from my own hand-drafted patterns with close attention to construction and details. In addition, I merge repurposed and new fabrics and leathers to give new life to items that would otherwise be discarded. My purses give people the ability to tell the world who they are without actually saying anything, while at the same time allowing me the opportunity to explore my sewing creativity.
