Design your own bag with - handmade in the USA and machine washable was launched in 2008 to help women design their next favorite handbag at a fraction of designer handbag prices. We sew custom-made bags that are super durable, machine washable and 100% unique for each person. We've made thousands of custom bags and never the same one twice.

My favorite part about eThreads is making people happy. We get such positive feedback from customers who experience the joy of designing their own bag and bragging to all their friends. It's so cool to hear someone say, "I love your bag" and you get to say, "Thanks, I designed it myself!" Plus, finding a bag that's exactly what you want - the right color, size, shape and style - is priceless. We even change zipper directions for lefties so the bag sits comfortably on their side. (I'm a lefty and was frustrated by store-bought bags that have zipper openings on the opposite side - I couldn't reach them!)

My second favorite part about eThreads is our commitment to social responsibility. I believe in the triple bottom line - People, Planet and Profits - and donate to charitable organizations, use eco-friendly fabrics and recycled packaging. The more success eThreads achieves, the more it can influence other businesses to be socially responsible. This drives me everyday.
