American Made Handbags

If you're looking for American made handbags, you've come to the right place! Our handmade bags business, 144 Collection, was started in 2006 in Queens, New York. The name even comes from the number of our apartment building where I first learned to sew and still reside – and the logo even features the building!

The 144 Collection team is comprised of myself, Lesia Griffin, and my invaluable and talented seamstress, Mary Sue. We both work hard to create beautiful and unique handmade handbags – made right here in the USA. We love creating unique, one-of-a-kind handbags that people will love and treasure.

Our handbags have handles that are long enough to fit comfortably over your shoulder, and are large enough to keep all your essentials. The bags feature pockets and zipper closures to help keep things tidy and organized.

Check out some of our handmade designer handbags below, if you're looking for something specific, contact us as we love working with clients to design custom handbags that use unique fabrics or colors that are exactly what you're looking for.
