Founded in 1997, a husband and wife team started a side business making handbags. It was an A-Ha! moment when restoring their 1950 Buick. While installing seatbelts into the car, trendsetter Dana decided to make a matching handbag for his wife. It was not long after that the couple had requests from friends and family. With demand rising they turned their garage into their first production site. Their beloved Buick was sold and used as capital to fund their new growing business. As entrepreneurs, they put up their sleeves and went to work designing all types for handbags, clutches and wallets that we all need and love!
This roomy, zippered top tote can take you from a day in the office to a casual jaunt to the mall. It is outfitted with a zip interior pocket and two slide pockets on the opposite side. It is a piece of art! You can’t get any closer to American innovation (iconic to the auto industry) than purchasing a seatbelt handbag. Polished and practical, this bag will become an old favorite as its durability can be matched to genuine leather.
