I love handbags! Let’s start there.
Different designs, different colors, different shapes. I’ve studied them endlessly. I believe that they must ultimately come together to make a great handbag.
Since I was a little girl, I’ve collected handbags. Not shoes – HANDBAGS! Today, I love designing them.
While previously working as a Marketing Director at a financial services firm, my frustration with unorganized handbags led to a quest to design one. I eventually created a line of totes called Taylor Bags.
These totes married timeless fashion with everyday functionality. Each Taylor Bag featured a multi-pocketed interior with a removable and interchangeable liner. My totes quickly gained a loyal following among a diverse group of women. Everyone from working professionals to new moms were drawn to their stylish functionality.
After a few years of successfully selling Taylor Bags through various retail channels across the U.S., I made the decision to take a break from the business to spend more time with my growing family.
In late 2019, I began to once again pursue my passion to create timeless, high-quality handbags for women on the go. After an extensive search for the best materials from around the world, I turned my focus to identifying high quality domestic manufacturers. It was important to me that my bags were “Made in the USA”.
Now sold under the Stephanie Taylor name, I am pursuing my dream while also supporting American industry by designing and manufacturing all my products domestically.
Made in the USA
All Stephanie Taylor products are proudly manufactured in the United States. After searching coast to coast for manufacturing resources, we are fortunate to be working with a very talented group of craftspeople and artisans in New York that have decades of experience producing high quality leather handbags and accessories.
