About The Designer:
Founder Tamara Leuty started her fashion journey in Dallas, Texas, as a hair and make-up stylist for advertising and fashion catalogs. In 1991, she made a major shift and relocated to New York, where she made the jump into fashion and advertising photography.
In 2010, Tamara began solving a problem that had tormented every handbag owner since their invention… an integrated light system that allows you to see what’s inside your bag.
Finally in 2011, she created the first prototype for Glass Handbag, and launched the first one with her partner the following year.
Today, Tamara functions as CEO and designer of the company, overseeing creation, production, and distribution of every purse sold by the company.
Committed to accessorizing the world with a stylish and functional handbag, Tamara has stayed true to her roots in fashion, contributing an innovative product to the fashion industry.
Said Leuty: “Function and technology don’t have to be unattractive, they can be sexy, too.”
About The Company, In Their Own Words:
We strive to obtain a perfect mix of natural cowhides with hair-on and customized dying; embossing; and laser cutting techniques. Every handbag is crafted in Italy and unique, with our interior lighting system an added complement to all that we design.
