Local Memphis Woman Re-Designs

Martha Nash

Martha Nash went from interiors to exteriors when she started designing handbags. The former interior designer lost her job when the recession hit the Memphis economy. With her home as her studio, Nash took leftover fabric from her days of home and office design and started sewing. Nash prides herself on unique designs using mid-century modern textiles from designers like Alexander Girard and manufacturers like Herman Miller.

Nash appreciates her unique style and considers her bags pieces of art. She combined talents with local Memphis artist Patrick Greene and together they have created what they consider wearable art. Their bags are sold at boutiques across the mid-south.
