Very cool blog post by Melissa from Toast 2 Mom, who was surprised to receive a Supplii bentwood handbag from her husband. He picked out the maple finish as you’ll see by the picture inserted into her post. You can read the entry by visiting her blog post Easter Come Early.
It’s great to see people’s enthusiasm for a Supplii product, and great to be part of a surprise!

Supplii™ LLC (“SUPPLII”) takes customer service and our relationship with you (the “Customer”) very seriously. It’s our goal to ensure that you have a favorable experience with us, so we work hard to serve you well. Below you will find our Customer Service policies – please read them carefully as they define the terms by which SUPPLII operates with Customers. For any specific questions, please Contact SUPPLII.
Unless otherwise noted, SUPPLII will ship your order within 5 business days of your transaction (the “Ship Date”). We typically ship within a day or two of your completed transaction, but need the 5 business day window during busy times as each wood purse is handmade. We will email you the shipping confirmation and tracking number with the item ships.
Types of Shipping
SUPPLII ships domestically to the United States for $15 USD per item using UPS Ground, which arrives in 1 to 5 business days after the Ship Date.
SUPPLII ships internationally for $40 USD (Canada is $25 USD) using USPS First Class Registered Mail with Signature Confirmation, which takes 5 to 10 business after the Ship Date.
SUPPLII uses this shipping process with Tracking and Signature Confirmation to protect our customers and ourselves from fraud and theft. SUPPLII will not ship any items using cheaper delivery methods, as those methods cost more in the long-run due to customer headaches, fraud, and theft.
Return shipping is the responsibility of the Customer. Please read about Returns for more information on the process of returning an item.

My artistic and design sensibilities have been forged from exposure to a broad range of academic and professional endeavors, inclusive of architecture, urban planning, fine art, scenic design, and corporate branding and marketing. I have always reveled in the creation of tangible products and the thin divide between products that are functional and awe inspiring.
So Supplii is the culmination of these many endeavors, and what an incredibly fun and rewarding experience this has been for me. From concepts to drawings to molds to prototyping to the first commercially available product: the Supplii Toolbox. There are two variations of this product based on the materials, and both products (the Maple and the Black Walnut handbags) project a unique and elegant exterior finish that’s truly remarkable in function: the form leverages the tensile nature of the molded bentwood sheets to actually create the hinge. Both handbags are available on Supplii.com or through the “Shop Now” button on the left hand side of our Supplii Facebook Page.
These first outputs have resonated with me, taken me by surprise. The natural wood materials, the thoughtfully-crafted exterior form, the hand-smoothed edges and handle all feel so comfortable against the body and in the hand. The great efforts extended over nearly a year have paid off, and I hope you enjoy the output as much as I do.
There are other handbag molds currently in the production queue, and we at Supplii look forward to narrowing in on the next Supplii product release. We’re keeping the style of our next handbag close to our vests, but I can say it will reflect Supplii’s commitment to strong design and natural function. I can’t wait.
