"We have a great time introducing people to Sherpani. That's one of the best parts about having the store here. We want customers to come in and put their stuff in our bags, so they can get a good feel for how things fit. We're all about helping somebody find the perfect bag." - Niki

"In the inception of Sherpani, we were really targeting the outdoor bags and backpacks. We wanted to fill a void for specifically designed women's backpacks with fit, style and color. We have since adapted the brand to a more modern alpine lifestyle bag company.Our bags are fun and functional." - Maria

"We love being located on the East End. It's an extremely creative and collaborative environment! We go to Pizzeria Locale for dinner or the Laughing Goat for live music and happy hour."

"When we were looking for a new space, we were initially just looking for something to serve as a design office. When we found this location, we decided we'd add a storefront because it just made sense! It was a very natural progression and it just felt right. We couldn't be happier." - Alexa

"I always wanted to be a fashion designer. I went to school for it and have been in the fashion industry ever since. The thing that I like the most about fashion is the colors." - Maria
"I'm the same way, I always knew I wanted to be in fashion. I remember being 8 years old, sitting on my floor and remaking jeans by sewing sequins or patches on them." - Alexa
"All of the things that have happened to me as I've grown up have been my dream. Working here is a dream of mine." - Niki

"This company is really about being yourself and having fun!"
