Janice Serilla is the designer behind her Santa Cruz, California based business, Mackerilla Design.
She started designing and creating Mackerilla brand bags in 2001. lt all began because a former employer was going to toss out a bunch of new fabric “leftovers.” These fabrics would all have ended up in the local landfill.
Janice decided to take the upholstery fabrics home and make some use of them. She made a simple backpack for herself to use while out riding on her Cruiser bike. Little did Janice know at that time that she had just created her first of many, “Cruzer” backpacks. She would then follow up with more design styles, by listening to what women wanted and needed in carrying an every day functional bag. The “Mackerilla” brand name was then created by combining her husbands and her last name together. Mackerilla Design was then born!
WORKING TO HELP SAVE OUR ENVIRONMENT
At Mackerilla Design, our goal is to use high quality fabrics and create a bag at an affordable price for our customers. We utilize high end durable fabrics from upholstery manufacturers and furniture designers. These fabrics acquired, are called “Bolt Ends”, which are their unused yardage left over from completed projects. This means that our fabrics are limited and are subject to change. Most of these fabrics are Italian made and are water resistant or washable wool blends. These wonderful fabrics would possibly end up being tossed out or dumped into a storage facility where they would be lost forever! Mackerilla Design wants to do its part in saving our environment by utilizing these quality fabrics. By doing this, we also have created a desire by our customers to own more than one bag due to our limited fabric choices and the high quality of these fabrics. It gives Mackerilla customers their bragging rights about the fabric that they chose is not owned by everyone. So every Mackerilla bag owner can feel a bit special!
PATTERNS FOR ALL YOU “DIY” CRAFTERS!
In 2007, We had started to create patterns of the Mackerilla brand handbag designs to sell to all the crafty types that want to make one of the designs. We have successfully created a line of patterns and continue to add in new designs. They are sold here on this website and on Janice’s ETSY page. They are also sold through pattern distributers to fabric, quilter shops and online retailers.
