Nerve Center for Arbor Hills

 

continued

You can buy any of the sample bags on display, but that would be missing the point. With forty styles and about 140 fabrics to choose from, the idea is to make a completely unique product. Such stars as Jennifer Garner, Debra Messing, and Susan Sarandon have.

Looney fetches the bag she brought in to work that morning, one of about ten she owns, a "Roxy," with black-on-black circles as the main fabric, gray basket-weave side panels, with more adventurous touches inside (bright pink twill) and on the strap (black, white, and pink "City Block"). "We get a generous discount," Looney says, but the Roxy would cost the rest of us about $150. Sewn by a Chicago seamstress, a custom bag arrives about three or four weeks after you place your order.

Looney says she just ordered LILL's biggest bag, the "Paula," to haul around the snow boots she just bought at North Face. "I've never been in Michigan in the winter," she says, but she's stoked: "I have an aunt in Alpena."

LILL Studio, 3030 Washtenaw (Arbor Hills Crossing, Building B), 975-8696. Mon.-Sat. 10 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. 11 a.m.-6 p.m. 1154lill.com
