Announcement   Many of the bags in my store are 'Ready to Ship'. (Not Everything). To purchase a 'Ready to Ship' bag, type the words, READY TO SHIP into the 'Search Item' window, above this announcement.

Welcome to Handbags by Daphne!! Here you will find my multi-functional and convertible collection of bags, purses, wristlets, cool backpacks, messenger bags, hobos, diaper bags, as well as totes and travel bags.

All my handbags are made in my NYC design studio, right here in the USA. And most importantly, each bag is individually HANDMADE BY ME.

My handbags are 'limited-edition' or 'one-of-a-kind', and most are made from beautiful, fine, and richly textured Italian tapestries. For my customers, this means you are purchasing a unique handbag that is lightweight and extremely durable.

If you happen to see a fabric in my store that you like, but you want it in one of the other styles from my store, please let me know, since I can use that fabric in the style that you want. But act quick, oftentimes, I have only a limited amount of material to work with. I can further customize the bag by adjusting the length of the handles to suit your needs. Just let me know since I want your experience with me to be exceptional.

Have a great time shopping my store!!!

Ziet er prachtig uit, mooi gemaakt, stevig. Er kan genoeg in, maar je loopt niet met een enorme bulk rond. Fijn in gebruik.

About

Each Bag Has a Story........

Here’s mine:

I spend a great deal of time each day on the subways and buses in New York City searching and shopping for unique colors and textures for my handbags. I have this two-wheeled cart which I carry my stuff in as I go store to store looking for the best accessories to compliment the Italian tapestries. I’ve become quite good at navigating the busy sidewalks of Manhattan with my trusty little fabric cart. (I apologize in advance if I accidentally ran you over while you were visiting from out of town.)

Once I’m back in my studio, the real fun begins. It is here where I start mixing and matching fabrics for the best blend of color and texture for each bag. From this, I make my own patterns which form the shape and function of each bag.

In order to amp up the fun, I spend several hours a day checking Etsy and responding to emails and conversations from my Etsy followers. (Also referred to as my beloved customers!)

Once I’ve completed the lovefest, I precisely cut the fabrics to exactly match the patterns. From this point on, I’m basically sewing my heart out with my best buddy, Juki, until my husband calls and asks why I’m still in my studio till 11 PM.

On Saturdays, my husband, who happens to be my best friend and terrific photographer, photographs each bag with the goal of making sure what appears on Etsy is exactly what arrives at your door.

The balance of the weekend consists of checking my orders on Etsy, packing boxes, and spending quality time on the US Postal Service website.

So that’s my story and the story of each bag.

Thanks so much for stopping in and visiting Handbags by Daphne.

Love - Daphne
