Lill Studio was founded in 1999 by Jennifer Vellarde, a bag enthusiast who used her creativity to conceptualize the online retail shop. The company’s goal is not just provide quality custom handbags to women but also give a unique and personal shopping experience every time you shop on the website or in their boutiques.
The company does not just do their business online, they also have two retail shops in Chicago and Boston. Their website features a huge array of different bag styles, from their shop’s personal collections to DIY custom handbags. Apart from that, they also offer gadget cases and gift cards. The styles they carry range from dressy to very casual and you will have a great variety of designs to choose from.
The prices of Lill bags are very reasonable. These are not the lowest-priced custom handbags we have seen online but they do have great style and quality, making them well-worthy of their price tags. Bags from the Lill Studio Collection are typically priced at $48 – $165. DIY bags are also around the same price. The website regularly offers sales and discounts so be on the lookout for promo codes and seasonal sales.
Their design studio is not as impressive as we hoped. It does come equipped with a nice image representation of the product, which also updates with changes, but the image can’t be zoomed or rotated and also does not appear to have high definition. The design process itself is very simple and can be finished in just a few minutes however, there is not much freedom in the design process. While other bigger bags will allow you to choose different fabrics for different parts, some smaller bags will only allow you to change the exterior and interior. There are no other options for hardware, logo or graphic art placement. However, the styles available on the studio are undeniably all fashionable. They have great quality fabrics of different colors, from solid, basic ones to trendy and fun patterns.
Custom orders take approximately 3 -4 weeks to finish. Custom orders can be returned if you are not fully satisfied with your order, provided it is returned within 45 days of purchase. Sale items can’t be exchanged or refunded.
Overall, Lill Studio proves to be a very good resource site for fashionable custom bags. They might not have the most sophisticated design software but we are very impressed by the style of the fabrics as well as the bag designs on the site.
