Tell Us About Your Design

I designed a medium size caramel leather handbag which can be worn day or night. The contrasting leather handle is designed with an adjustable strap to fit the shoulder, the arm, or can be carried in hand. The bag offers coordinating side straps that compliment the contrasting leather handle. With the same brass buckles and hardware shown on the leather handle they all appear as one piece. The bag is designed with side gathers at each corner which adds interest and style. The outside of the bag is very appealing to the eyes and can be worn with almost anything. The inside lining of the bag is a tiger print lining with pockets on each side. The partition pockets are tiger printed with caramel trim across the top, while the flush zip pocket is lined with caramel leather. The closure is a simple antique snap for easy access in and out of the bag. The tiger printed lining has been handstitched to the caramel leather to provide durability and detail. The side straps are attached to the bag with brass rivets and D-rings for detail. The leather is very soft to the touch and the color combinations can appeal to many differnt audiences.

Who or What Were Your Biggest Inspirations During This Process?

I was totally inspired by the leather! The color and feel of the leather captured my heart and I had to have it. I wanted to create something that was sophisticated and stylist without being over the top. I believe this bag can be worn day or night. Whether out on the town with firends, on a date, at the office, you name it this bag can be worn.

Judges’ Rating: 4/5

Judges’ Comments: “I think this is a very versatile piece. My one question is how big is it? It would be great to offer it in a little bit bigger of a size to accommodate for working women and all the items they need to tote around on a daily basis. The hand stitching and equestrian feel of the strap make this a gorgeous piece!” – Julie
