1154 Lill Studio is a company that started right here in Chicago about nine years ago. It allows people to design their own purses. (News Release) 1154 Lill Studio is located in Chicago's Lincoln Park business district. There are other retail locations nationwide and a website where people can go to order items. 1154 Lill Studio also has design-your-own pillows, jewelry rolls, briefcases, travel bags and diaper bags for the new mom. This year in a tight economy, it is more important to give gifts that are personal and have meaning. These bags are locally made and are truly labors of love, as they are unique to each person who designs them.

Humble Beginnings

Jen Velarde started Lill Studio in her apartment on Lill Street nine years ago. She made a few bags for close friends and family and the story just grew from there. Now there are orders everyday that come in from all over the country for products that are created right here in Chicago. There are several different affordable gift ideas this holiday season.

Christmas Order Deadline

The deadline for Christmas delivery is December 7th. However, if you've missed the deadline for ordering custom bags, you are not out of luck. You can purchase a ready-made bag in popular styles and fabrics or you can purchase a gift card and come into the store and design the bag after the holidays are over! 1154 Lill has more than 30 different styles of bags and accessories to choose from and more than 150 different types of fabric from which to select.
