Biographical Info

Helen’s Daughters Studio designs, creates and sews award-winning tapestry handbags, pocket books, totes, backpacks, and purses. The Helen’s Daughters handbag business started in 1989 between two sisters: Char, in Wisconsin, and Mariella, in Minnesota. Helen was our mother. The handbag business honors her and all that she taught us about being creative, loving life and having fun. Char and Mariella constantly search for unusual and sometimes limited fabrics and trims. Each sister has her own individual handbag style and creative designs. They participate in regional art fairs and shows. Helen’s Daughters Studio can custom-design handbags for any need or occasion. The handbags are plain to fancy, pretty to bold, and everyday to occasional – always useful. Their handbags have been carried at hundreds of weddings and proms, and some have traveled all over the world. They are collected and loved by young and old.

Helen’s Daughters Studio is open only by appointment.
