About Me


Welcome to my blog, I’m Allisa. Here, I create and design clutches and handbags.  This is my unexpected passion--  making things for others to treasure.

How it all began:  After searching for just the right bag to take with me to a friend’s wedding, I finally decided to create my own clutch. It was lovely, a simple & modern brown silk clutch that made me happier than anything I’d seen in any shops.  From there, I started making all my own accessories.  A teacher tote bag to bring with me to school. A handbag for day.

And then, a funny thing happened.  Requests poured in.  From friends, acquaintances, and colleagues. When strangers stopped me on the street, I knew I had something to share.

By taking professional bag design courses from one of the best handbag designers in Boston, I strengthened my skills and just couldn’t stop making!  I researched materials and fine-tuned my techniques.  

All of this came together when I decided to take a leap; stay home with my new baby and build a business.

So here I am.

Incredibly happy to share my designs with you.  I find a lot of joy in creating something from scratch, making a bag that someone can not only use, but love.

A few things to know about me and my designs:

I never settle for just ok. This means early mornings and late night. This means, if I see a flaw or something less than what I imagined, I’ll do the whole thing over.

My bags come packed with lots of little details, many unseen, but all there to make them extra amazing.  I double stitch. I use special material inside to add strength and structure.  I source the very best materials.

I’m not a factory.  Each bag is lovingly handmade by me - often from sketch to finish. In fact, many of my bags also use fabric I’ve designed myself.

I take weddings seriously. No matter how many orders I complete (hundreds!), I’m always honored when a bride asks me to create bags for her wedding. It’s a huge event, and I’m thankful to be part of it.

This is my way of sharing bits of happiness.  I find joy in the process of making. I feel so lucky that I have the opportunity of sharing my work.
Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by and learn about my work. I always love hearing from folks, so drop me a line to ask a question or just say hello!
