the handbags
Since I founded the Holland Cox label in 2004, I have designed eight distinct handbag styles: the classic, the envelope clutch, the wristlet, the A-line clutch, the mini-clutch, the flight bag, the briefcase, and the hobo).

I create new versions of five of them on a flexible schedule. The three flagship designs (the classic, envelope clutch and wristlet) are now only available as custom orders.

The handbags are always one-of-a-kind! My goal is to create individual works of art that are fun and easy to wear, and are studies in color and texture.

the accessories
There are more than a dozen accessories for ladies and gents in the Holland Cox collection, and I am adding new ones all the time. They are all always limited edition, sometimes one-of-a-kind. Come back often, since I add new items and colorways regularly. As every item is made individually, placement of fabric patterns will vary.

the sewing patterns
I started designing sewing patterns in 2011 as an outlet for my sewing evangelism. I would love to see pictures of the things you make using my patterns! I'm working on new ones all the time, drop me a line if there's something you'd like to see specifically.

custom work
I am happy to create custom versions of everything in the shop (the handbags, too)! Please let me know via convo if you see something you like, but would prefer a different color/fabric. Check out some of my fabric stash:
