A good purse is hard to find. The factors when trying to buy a bag are dependent upon a couple factors. While some go for inexpensive and cute, others want something more expensive but of higher quality.

For those of you looking for a healthy mix, meet Ayana Evans.

She’s a fab New York City-based designer who creates handmade purses that are high-fashion chic, environmentally friendly and socially conscious. The Brown University-grad created her line of purses from a need she saw in the accessories world. A lover of leather goods and whimsical fashion, she found a great way to combine the two with Yana Handbags.

We spoke to her about her journey from teaching art class to creating hot purses.
