Peggy MacNeil spent a long career as an award-winning graphic designer as head of her company, Mannis MacNeil Design. “One of the joys of designing for me was using color and color combinations for mood, messaging and putting a very contemporary spin on my designs.”
In 2015 she started designing with fabric and PeggyPac was born. “I developed a concept to bring the richness and texture of fabric combined with my love of color to be part of our everyday lives.” She produces custom, hand-made purses and scarves that are elegant and useful. In addition, she added bolo necklaces and earrings that coordinate with the purses and a portable jewelry display that folds down the the size of a smart phone.
The PeggyPac purse is a small, cross-body sac purse. Because of it’s unique design, this is the only small purse that will hold a thick wallet, a bottle of water, make-up, change purse and has two pockets for a cell phone and keys. It folds flat so you can pack 10 of them in a tight suitcase or tuck it into a pocket of a larger purse to be used later for an evening event.
The PeggyPac scarf is a two-sided reversible scarf. Most are 60 inches long. One side of the scarf is usually a soft satiny fabric and the other side either soft suede, metallic or patterned. The scarves are designed so that they can be folded many ways to produce many different looks.
The PeggyPac Mini is a travel jewelry display that folds down into a plastic sleeve the size of a smart phone. When unfolded, it fits over the shape of any available hanger and you can see all your jewelry at a glance. There are three pockets for any pieces that need to be tucked in.
PeggyPac designs are sold at Gallery 62, Danvers Art Association and the Gallery at “The Bridge at 211, ” Salem Arts Association.
