YAY! Guess what? Bizi is officially open for business in the U.S.! We have our exclusive limited edition bags now posted at our online shop and we are working on additional styles and collections in our workshops in Buenos Aires, Argentina to bring you early in this year.
I started designing bags as far back as 2002 part time. With a few local boutiques in Washington D.C. area carrying my bags and a feature in the Washington Post Style section, I was encouraged to launch full time. But in 2003, I was diagnosed with late stage Lyme disease with co-infections and the life I enjoyed before Lyme, came to a screeching halt. Since then there have been a lot of new adjustments and a daily fight to get to this point now 10 years later despite health challenges and a new country from which to launch a business. God has chosen a rather unique, sometimes frustrating, sometimes humorous way of bringing this about despite it all.
Bizi has truly been a labor of love for me and a dream come true. I look forward to creating more accessories that I hope you will adore! Please check back for Bizi updates, interesting people and happenings in my adopted city. Muchísimas Gracias! BESOS! Meredith
