I was very intrigued by Johanna and her bags and wanted to know more about her and I figured you would too so here are a few snippets from her bio that can be found in entirety here.
"When I was a little girl, I used to make purses and wallets out of anything I could get my hands on. I loved to make paper dolls, and create their clothes and their accessories. I've always been a designer at heart."
"With my mom's hand-me-down sewing machine and fabrics that I chose because I loved, I started beso handbags at my dining room table, sewing while my daughter was at school, and my son was taking his nap, and sometimes, late at night while my kids and my amazingly supportive husband were all fast asleep. I've grown a bit since then, but I'm proud to say that beso handbags still reflects my passion for design and my love of fabric."
"I call my line beso handbags. Beso is the Spanish word for kiss. Spanish and English are spoken in our home, and beso is a word we use all the time. Often throughout the day, we ask the kids for besos, or kisses, and tell them we love them. Beso is also a word that just reminds me that I love what I do, and I'm now doing what I've always loved."
