Announcement   Thank you for visiting my shop! I'm glad you're here, and I sincerely hope I can make the bag of your dreams for you.

~ Like my Facebook page for sneak peeks and new leathers and linings!

~ I never shop out my production and have no assistants... Each and every bag is hand cut and sewn by me from your chosen leather and lining. In this way I can make any adjustments needed to make your bag one of a kind, specifically for you.

~ Please read Production Time and Shipping here or in my shop policies before ordering, thank you!

~ Bags in the queue as of July 20th - 25

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
PRODUCTION TIME and SHIPPING
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ Unless your purchased bag is specifically listed as READY to SHIP, Currently please allow approximately 4 - 5 weeks or so after your purchase is paid in full before your order ships. These time frames do not apply to Pouches, Keychains, Bag Charms or T Shirts, these items ship within 3-4 days.
A word about estimated time frames. Sometimes my queue of orders is very long (Thank You so much for your orders!) and sometimes it is more manageable. I try to estimate the time that each bag will take to make, and I update this shop announcement regularly with the number of bags in the queue... this is the number of bags ahead of your order when you order. Sometimes the time estimate is a week or so off, and I completely don't mind inquiries about how your bag is coming along but PLEASE remember... this timeline is not because your bag will take X number of weeks to make; rather it is because I am creating the bags that were ordered prior to yours.

~ I ship to your ETSY address, unless you message me that it needs to be shipped elsewhere. Please make sure your Etsy address is correct.

~ If you need your bag by a certain date, please contact me prior to your purchase so we can arrange a Rush order if its possible .... a simple inquiry regarding rush orders will not make yours a rush, as there is no order to attach that to. Once we have agreed on a time frame, please remind me in the notes to seller at checkout that your bag is a Rush, and the date you need it by. Thank you so much, this really helps me.

~ Please be courteous to your fellow Etsy shoppers.. Unless we have discussed a Rush order PRIOR to your purchase, your bag will be constructed in the order that your order was received. The only way I can ensure that your bag is as perfect as I can make it is not to rush through its construction.

~ Anything marked "READY TO SHIP" will ship out in one business day.

~ Once your bag is finished, it will ship via your chosen USPS method. PLEASE NOTE: choosing Express shipping only makes your shipping faster once the bag is finished, it doesn't move your order ahead in the queue.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CUSTOM ORDERS
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ COMPLETELY CUSTOM bags, on the other hand, are a different story altogether. Again, I try very hard to estimate how long your custom bag will take me to draft, sew, redraft, etc once your order comes up in my queue... but because it isn't a bag I've made before this is something that is difficult to estimate and if you choose to order a completely custom design based on a drawing or photographs you have provided to me it must be with the understanding that this process cannot be rushed, under any circumstance. Sometimes the first, second or third versions I make of your bag don't work as I envision and I have to set it aside to rethink how I can realize the vision you have. Keep this in mind.... you don't want a rushed, inferior bag and I honestly won't send you one. Bottom line: its a process. It will require patience on your part, but I'll do everything I can to make it worth the wait, I promise.
"CUSTOM" is a bag that you have dreamed up and I have not made before. One of my listed bags made in an alternate (in stock) leather or with a different strap configuration is considered "Made to order" and does not fall into the Custom category.

EVERYTHING ELSE
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

~ Everything in my shop is cut, stitched, wrapped, and shipped by me in my Manhattan, NY home studio. I personally choose and purchase every leather, lining, and hardware. Thank you for your patience while I create your beautiful new bag.

I use only the finest materials available ~ SOLID hardware (whether you choose solid brass or solid silver nickel) and each handbag is meticulously constructed and double stitched everywhere with Dabond T90 thread, which is 100% polyester, super thick, strong, durable and rot-proof..... My hope is that you'll want to carry your bag forever; and I really do strive to make sure that it will survive anything that you can put it through.

~ Because the leathers I use are full or top grain (versus inferior secondary cuts from the hide) some natural markings including brands, finished scratches / bites may or may not be present. Typically, these markings are very subtle and are considered by most as the "signature" of fine, authentic leather

HAPPY This is perfect. Such Quality. I've had it a week and I still find myself just staring at it and thinking it is the best bag ever. I am amazed how much I fit in it and how wonderful it looks on my arm. I've convinced myself that this should be my fall/winter bag just so that I can get a spring/summer bag too. Only thing I'd recommend is to secure the charm a little better-I managed to lose mine in 1 week, but really, that is just the way my life goes. :-) I'm going to start deciding on another bag and you should too!

Absolutely beautiful! This is my 3rd Laurel Dasso bag in only a few months. I am always so anxious and excited to open the box and see (and smell) the beautiful leather bag. The leather is so soft and the detail and construction is flawless. Laurel is such a pleasure and so easy to communicate with. Ever since my first Laurel bag, I have NEVER looked at a bag in any store. Laurel has spoiled me! Thank you Laurel ❤️

About

Luxury handmade leather goods

Dalle mie mani ~ Italian for "From my hands"

I don't shop out my production.. each bag is hand cut and sewn by me, from your chosen leather and lining. In this way I can make any adjustments you need to make your bag one of a kind, specifically for you.

We're all looking for that perfect daily companion bag that will carry our necessities and is stylish, luxurious, but not overly done. A sturdy, beautiful piece that we won't see coming and going on the street; a true statement bag that makes us smile when we pick it up, slide it over the arm or shoulder, and dig into for keys, wallet or phone... Oh, and we'd like to not spend thousands of dollars on it, please. Trust me, I know how difficult it is to find.

Since you are not a cookie-cutter girl (or guy), why should you carry the same mass produced bag that hundreds if not thousands of others are carrying as well?

I have hundreds of extremely happy customers, many of which come back repeatedly when the need arises for a new bag. I look forward to working with you!

~ Everything in my shop is designed, cut, stitched, wrapped, and shipped by me in my West Village studio. I personally choose and purchase every leather, lining, and each piece of hardware. I use only the finest materials available, and each handbag is meticulously constructed and double stitched everywhere.

~ I try to do my part to support small business by sourcing as many of my materials as possible from other small businesses in the US. I've built a fantastic network of suppliers in this way, and many of them have become good friends.

~ My hope is that you'll want to carry your bag forever; I really do strive to make sure that it will survive anything that you can put it through.
