Offhand Designs

Based in Oakland, California, Offhand Designs prides itself on original designs, high-quality local craftsmanship, and exclusive detailing. In a market flooded with mass-produced imports, Offhand Designs is dedicated to producing handbags that stand apart from the mainstream in every way. Offhand Designs brought its first line of handbags to life in the fall of 2001 and presently produces multiple collections of  doctor bags, totes, clutches, knitting bags and needle clutches in exquisite velvets, brocades and chenilles.

  • From the creation of the pattern to the final stitches, each bag is handmade in the San Francisco Bay Area.
  • All bags are made with the finest quality textiles inside and out - no cardboard or glue!
  • Each bag undergoes rigorous testing in the field to ensure that it's highly durable, to solve any minor inconveniences in its design, and to make sure that it turns heads!
  • All lavish embellishments are hand-placed on each individual bag to best complement its design elements. We feel that variations in the design are desirable and add character. This also means that each bag is truly one-of-a-kind.
  • All linings feature inset pockets and are carefully chosen to create an element of surprise and charm.
  • Offhand Designs products are offered in limited editions.
