Behind Scout and Catalogue’s dreamy marbled wallets and covetable leather bags is a woman with a vision – of secret beaches, sun-kissed skin and all-day siestas. Her name is Breanna, and though she’s based in Vancouver, Canada, her inspiration blossomed while living near the beach in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
Eager to learn more about her process and meet the woman behind the bags, we invited Breanna to take over Etsy’s Instagram last Wednesday as part of our #dayinthelife series. Check out her photos below, as well as the exclusive outtakes that didn’t make it to Instagram.
Scout and Catalogue HQ is in an old building on Vancouver’s east side.
This is Bruce Wayne, Breanna’s notoriously-shy studio sidekick.
Breanna hangs hand-dyed scarves up to dry.
Nature’s colors and textures serve as creative inspiration.
Evening hours bring relaxation and a glass of wine.
Breanna says: “Nothing beats a good book, though Netflix comes in handy too!”
Big thank-you to Bre for giving us a peek into her world – for more behind-the-scenes photos and inspiration, be sure to check out her blog.
