Shop Anagrassia Handbags at BRIKA! And Taking Good Product Photos ~Marusya

At the start of sum­mer, I found out I would be a fea­tured arti­san on BRIKA! I was so excited, but lit­tle did I know how crazy my sum­mer would turn out to be!

In addi­tion to my sister’s wed­ding prepa­ra­tion, I’ve been prepar­ing for my Brika launch!

 

 

 

BRIKA will first fea­ture some of my clutches and a can­vas tote bag. The tote bag is made of a col­or­ful kilim style fab­ric with gen­uine leather straps. This east­ern European/Turkish style is said to be replac­ing the chevron trend! (So I’ve heard.) But, I didn’t choose the kilim pat­tern for that rea­son! Instead, the print looked wordly, mod­ern, and reminded me of Ukrain­ian artistry!

I think the kilim design will look really nice with fall attire.

I’m inter­ested to see how they sell!

So…what is BRIKA?

BRIKA is a Toronto based ecom­merce web­site started by two women, Kene Para­jape and Jen Lee Koss. Their mis­sion is to “build a beau­ti­ful life through well-crafted, every­day objects” and cre­ate “a unique online shop­ping des­ti­na­tion that offers a curated selec­tion of spe­cial pieces that are des­tined to become heir­looms.” Every­thing on the web­site is hand­made with a story behind the prod­uct and the maker. Below is Brika’s YouTube Video:

 

TAKING GOOD PRODUCT PHOTOS

Pro­fes­sional prod­uct images (or pho­tos with proper light­ing) are extremely impor­tant in ecom­merce and with­out them, I’m not sure if any­one can suc­cess­fully sell their prod­ucts. Luck­ily, I have some tal­ented pho­tog­ra­phers in my fam­ily and resources that have allowed me to take pro­fes­sional look­ing pho­tos! (I’m still learn­ing though!!) My home­town has a fam­ily owned cam­era shop (Gene’s Cam­era) which recently opened a new stu­dio space that allows pho­tog­ra­phers to rent. The equip­ment and space is state of the arc and the own­ers have been EXTREMELY help­ful to me! Also, I’m for­tu­nate to have some lovely sis­ters who I can per­suade to model for me :)  I per­suaded my sis­ter Kate to spare some time to model gar­ments, purses, etc. in exchange for all the time I spent sewing and prepar­ing for her wedding!

The pic­tures turned out bet­ter than I imag­ined and I was extremely pleased! How­ever, early last week I needed to take more LAST MINUTE pho­tos! This time I was in a pinch for mod­els (they were all back at school) and so I had to do the mod­el­ing myself. I don’t feel com­fort­able post­ing so many pic­tures of myself, but they say a prod­uct sells bet­ter on/with a live model. (Plus it saves me money to not hire models!)

If you can’t find a pho­tog­ra­pher to help you out with prod­uct pho­tos, Kol­lab­ora just posted a DIY prod­uct images video. Click here to check it out!
