Announcement   Welcome to my shop!

I have been creating handbags since 1997. Each bag is individually designed and crafted in my (smoke-free) home studio in Charlottesville, VA. I am the sole proprietor of my business, and I take great pride in the quality and workmanship of everything I produce.

My larger bags are structured and very durable. The smaller shapes don't require as much stability but are still interfaced. Each bag has a surprise lining color, carefully chosen to best accentuate the outer fabric.

****I also create another bag which is special enough to have its own site. This one is made from a vintage inspired swim cap. Please view them at www.SplashBag.etsy.com****

Thank you for visiting!

About

My Handbags!

My handbag business began by trial and error in 1997. I had recently moved to Charlottesville, VA after living in NYC for 10 years, where I was a dress designer.

Back then, it wasn't so easy for home sewers to make bags. Patterns, supplies and instruction weren't so readily available.
So, I had to teach myself!

Many prototypes later, I was delighted to finally have a bag that was "customer worthy." I stitched a few together and left them at a couple of local boutiques on consignment. I remember going over on a Sunday night to peek into the store window to see if any of my bags had been sold!

This eventually led to a few other stores and craft shows. I launched my website www.victoriahorner.com in 2000. My 2 etsy sites began in 2010. Please visit www.SplashBag.etsy.com to see my other handbag line.
Plus, some of my fabrics are available for purchase: www.vickifab.etsy.com

Now, many years later, I'm still passionate about my business and excited to share my designs with others!
