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 wristlethandmade 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! 


 As we mention above, a lot of people refer to coin purses or makeup bags as pocketbooks as well, here are a few of our favorite designs – each is one-of-a-kind as they are hand-sewn from unique fabrics. If you're looking for custom purses, we also do custom sewing and special orders, so contact us today and we can discuss your dream custom clutch or purse!
