Mahala Lewis, head of design and production, joined Satchel in 2009. She also landed in Savannah thanks to SCAD. Well versed in children's clothes, costume design, and handbags, Mahala was an easy fit. Her "I can make that!" attitude and enthusiasm, combined with her love of a good challenge, quickly took hold. Her other specialties include painting, raising an amazing "old soul" 16 year old daughter Eisa, and keeping everyone on their toes with her sarcastic, tell-it-like-it-is humor.
