Freddy & Ma Custom Handbags, Pillows and More!

I’ve talked about Freddy & Ma before but I was recently reminded of their work and thought I’d show you some of their latest patterns and colors… oh and laptop sleeves (I’m dying to get my hands on one). I love seeing the work of Brooklyn artist Samantha Hahn on some of their pillows, I dig her design aesthetic so I think I’d own all of her pillows if I could fit them onto my sofa. :)

Aren’t these just lovely? You can customize plates, pillows, whatever you’d like using these fun tool on their site. They have a bevy of patterns to select from, and the pillows come in three sizes. I’m considering placing an order myself, I can never have too many cushions! Have fun playing on their website…
