Angela Boone, designer behind the brand Angelique Collections started when Boone was laid off and a month later her dad had a stroke. Her mother needed full time help with her dad. Angela always wanted to start a handbag line, so while caring for her dad full time Angelique Collections was inspired. Angela started to use what was around her, such as, newspapers and magazines. These paper bags were the mock up of what the fabric bags would look like. But as Angela created the mock ups, she uncovered something special. She tested the bags by wearing them out everywhere she went and people loved them and started ordering. That's what happened and Angelique Collections one-of-a-kind Eco-friendly handbags and accessories collection was born!
