Announcement   Welcome to Urban Gypsy Design! All of my bags are artfully crafted and made one at a time. I come from a painting background so I approach each bag design as an original work of art that is both beautiful and functional. Many of my listed designs are made to order and take 10-12 business days to make prior to shipment. If you want it faster check out my ready to ship section for in stock items.
Materials:
All of my bags are made one at a time from full grain leather. Because leather is a natural material, some hides may have nicks and scratches as well as branding marks which I feel add to the overall interest of the look of the bag. Hide finishes vary and colors can also vary from hide to hide. Every bag comes lined unless otherwise noted. Lining colors and patterns may vary from the listing picture from bag to bag due to availability.

Custom Orders:
I am happy to make a custom bag to meet your needs. Leather color, printed pieces and sizes can be changed on existing designs as well. Please convo me with any questions,I am glad to help!

Shipping:
Most bags are made to order and will take 10-12 days to construct and ship unless noted ready to ship. Rush orders are available for an extra fee. All bags are shipped priority mail via USPS. Rush orders are shipped via FedEx.

Return Policy:
Online or studio sales:
I take returns within 14 days of purchase for a full refund, but do not cover return postage. The bag needs to be returned unused and undamaged for the refund.
Art Shows:
All sales made at art shows are final and can not be returned

Quality Guarantee:
I take pride in my work and will happily make repairs free of charge for the life of each bag. I only ask that you pay the shipping charges.

Retail Locations:
A list of brick and mortar galleries and boutiques that carry my bags can be found on my website at www.urbangypsydesign.com

Thank you for visiting...enjoy!

Loved my first bag so much I had to get another one in a different design. Seriously these bags are beautiful, I get so many compliments and I love touching the leather. Thank you so much for making it for me (again!)

This was a custom made bag and its beautiful! Made exactly to my specifications - and I was very picky!!! Shipped faster than I expected for something made from scratch. Considering ordering another!

This bag is stunning! The Otomi fabric is fabulous and even more so in person. The quality of the leather is gorgeous and the craftsmanship is just amazing. This bag is beyond beautiful. It is for sure an attention getter! Christina is wonderful to work with. I love my new bag! Thank you so much! xoxo

About

Urban Gypsy Design bags are where beauty meets function.

Urban Gypsy Design was founded in 2009 by Minneapolis artist and designer Christina Hankins. Christina began her career as a fine artist in southern California creating narrative works in pastel and paint which she has exhibited throughout the United States. In 2003 she relocated her studio with her husband and children to Minnesota and began to establish herself in the upper midwest.

Several years after her relocation, Hankins began to think about combining fine art and function and started to visualize a line of artisan leather handbags. Each bag is thoughtfully designed with an artists eye while keeping wearability and function in mind. Christina creates original lino cut block prints, hand painted pieces and appliqués which she constructs her bags around. All of her bags are designed, hand cut, and sewn in her studio with the help of an assistant or two and are considered art to wear.

    I am an artist and designer living in Minneapolis with my four children, very supportive husband and a bulldog named Frankie. My leather handbags fuse art and function and are made one at a time in my studio.
