About

Welcome to Obiandoli!

Obiandoli? What does that mean anyway? I get that a lot. Obiandoli is a combination of my parents' surnames. I thought it was a good choice for my shop name, since my parents were directly responsible for my love of fabrics and sewing. They started a remnant shop in 1950 that quickly became the largest fabric store in northern NJ - so I literally grew up with fine, quality fabrics.

I absolutely love fabric. I moved from sewing clothing to creating fabulous handbags many years ago, and when Etsy came along...well, it was a no-brainer for me. My first Etsy handbag shop, LauraOhDesigns, opened in 2008. I'm honored that one of my original bags, under that label, was featured in Seaside Home, published by Stash Books in 2012. I closed LauraOhDesigns a few years ago to tend to family and relocation, and when I returned to making handbags, I just felt a new shop was in order. So...Obiandoli Handbags.

I work only with premium quilting cottons and decorator fabrics, which lend themselves nicely to handbags and accessories. There is great satisfaction in working with beautiful fabrics..mixing and matching and sewing to create something special. While I often use the same basic handbag design, the fabric combinations make each bag unique. I think that's one of the many benefits of buying handmade... you don't "see yourself coming and going" as my folks used to say.

All Obiandoli bags are handmade by me alone, right here in the USA. Everything you see in my shop is ready to ship, and you will receive the item pictured. I am a non-smoker, I do this full time and I truly love what I am doing.

Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and my shop.

Care instructions

Most of my bags are constructed with premium home decor fabrics, and spot cleaning is recommended. However, these fabrics are also stain resistant. Cleaning instructions are included in the item descriptions.

Custom and personalized orders

I work with small amounts of fabulous fabrics, but I'm certainly willing to work with you if you have something in mind. Let's talk about it.
