About Stitch and Tickle

Stitch and Tickle is a line of handmade leather bags and accessories designed by Sophie Truong. All items are made one by one in her studio at the Boston Center for the Arts. Born in France, Sophie studied International Business in Paris before moving to Boston in the early 90’s.  While working in the corporate and nonprofit world, she started feeling the pull of a more creative field and she discovered art-making in her early 30’s. Sophie used found textiles and unconventional sewing techniques in her artwork and it gradually became clear that fiber arts was her medium.  
A recurring theme in her work revolved around hyper-consumerism and the waste our society generates.  In 2011, while unable to find a bag that would fit her taste and needs, she started playing with leather and Stitch and Tickle was born! Truong’s process creating bags is the same as in her artwork: it is intuitive and tactile, so the leather she discovers always dictates what the final product will be.  Yet, all bags have the same qualities: they are simple, beautiful, functional and timeless.
