WOW!! This bag is even more gorgeous in person. I received this item quickly and am VERY pleased with the purchasing experience and the quality of the bag. The fabric is top notch, heavy upholstery and will last for years.

This is a very beautiful bag from a lovely maker. Joan sent the bag to me in Australia and made it a very positive buying experience. Thanks!

Joan was so much fun to work with in the creation process of my handbag. She made sure that we were agreeable to colors, measurements, fabric, etc. Very creative and quality workmanship. Would definitley work with Joan again on another handbag creation adventure !

Welcome to Garbe Bags! Each Garbe Bag has its own unique combination of fabrics and features so that no two bags are exactly alike. It is part of the joy of creating handmade items, it keeps life interesting since I get to play with the colors and textures of each bag and experiment with changes to my designs. Custom orders are always welcome, just contact me to let me know what you are looking for and what features, size or colors you would like in a bag or accessory.

I use high end upholstery fabric remnants which limits the availability of the different fabrics but allows me to use fabrics that normally cost on average over $40 a yard, One fabric that I couldn't resist was actually a Robert Allen Fabric that sold for $250 a yard! The fabrics have high standards for wear and are incredibly stain resistant. I include a small test sample with each bag so that you can test your worst nightmare stains and see how easily these bags resist staining, my favorite test is to try some red wine and be amazed to see it simply bead up and not absorb into the fabric. So have fun testing your fabrics with your own worst nightmare stains!
