Handmade Pocketbooks

You'll love our handmade pocketbooks that are one-of-a-kind! We hand-sew our pocketbooks with love in Queens, New York.

We've been told that not everyone knows what a pocketbook is. Here's the definition:

Pocketbook: A woman's handbag or purse. This type of bag usually has handles and pockets and is used to carry phones, money and personal belongings.

The term Pocketbook isn't used by everyone to describe a handbag, it is a rather old term, but it is still quite popular amongst many. The term pocketbook started being used in the 1600s, when people referred to their wallet or money holder as a pocketbook. Many people say a pocketbook is a smaller wallet or purse to hold money and slips inside a larger purse or handbag, where some people refer to their whole handbag or purse as a pocketbook. Well, whatever you choose to call your bag, they are all ok with us!

Whether you are looking for a handmade pocketbook, a iphone wristlet, handmade coin purse, or a handmade clutch – we have a wonderful selection of unique, one-of-a-kind, American-made bags that are sure to please!
