Rachel Feinberg’s purses find their beginnings in an ordinary Monday morning commute on the New York City Metro’s F train. Rachel looked up to survey the commuters around her – each women, sat with her purse on her lap with legs either crossed or tightly closed, while the majority of men sat relaxed. Rachel transformed to a fashion designer intrigued by the spatial consciousness and tendencies of the subway’s occupants: the majority of females sit with their bags on their lap, while the majority of males allow their belongings to occupy the space next to them. ‘Why?' She asked. And with that question in mind, the Pussy Pouch was born.
