Meet the Designer
Meet the designer of Tikishiki handbags
Hi, my name is Jennifer, which means the white wave or ‘whitewash’ of the ocean in Welsh. I’m the designer/owner of Tikishiki Handbags. Having lived in Hawaii for the past 23 years while receiving my BA in International Relations in Honolulu; to then work in conservation on the island of Kaua’i, sales and the culinary arts, I made it a point to travel as often as possible. Discovering my passion for textiles and culture early on while collecting fabrics and beautiful keepsakes, viewing art and design in the the many beautiful countries I'v visited, keeps me happy and grateful.
Inspirations in my life and creations are vintage adornments, the beauty of nature, freedom and travel. Loving the calm remote tropics and the excitement & sophistication of a city is a personal yin/yang method I use to fuel my growth. I believe you can make your life an artistic expression of who you are. That is what a Tikishiki Handbag is all about “a functioning wearable piece of art”.
Thank you for checking out my creations and exploring the website. I hope you find something that inspires you and moves your soul in a fun and free new fashion direction.
Mahalo & Gratitude Always~
