Fashion handbags design varies from quarter to quarter and to season to season. We display a range of handmade fabric handbags done in recent years but we have only four prices for our ladies handbags and three basic size divisions for our wholesale purses: small, medium and large.

For large orders of handmade fabric handbags, you can select any dupioni silk print, silk batik or two-tone Thai silk fabric displayed (or not) on our site to create custom handbags, subject to the availability of that particular fabric and the components chosen such as an unusual handle.
We've created a Handmade Handbags Reference Chart of approximately 150 colors and styles of fashion handbags to help you communicate your needs to us. It is NOT a catalog. It shows examples of past ladies handbags to help us understand each other when you have special requirements.
Our minimum order is a dozen handbags total. Fashion handbags made-to-order can be produced at the rate of about 50 per week if the same model. If you order several models, the pace can slow to about 25 per week but we will do our best to fulfill your order as swiftly as possible. Click here for order form.
Some handmade purses are soft and collapsible but most are fairly stiff. Many handbags close with a zipper. Some purses close with a snappable clasp or other closing device. All womens handbags we currently sell, close using a zipper and several models have two zippers closing two inner compartments.
Wood purse handles are usually made of mango wood. The basic shapes are: square, round (full-moon), semi-circular (half-moon), oval and ornamental such as curved (inverted smile). Purse handles are usually black or dark brown but red is available upon request. Occasionally purse designers use bamboo, rattan, simulated leather (PVC) or silk fabric purse handles.

Protective packing using a box will cause the courier company to use a "volumetric weight" formula and charge by package surface area. We've found that can result in the cost of shipping being as much as twice the cost of the handbags themselves. Soft packaging using bubble wrap to prevent crushing and plastic wrapping to kee the order together can be sent based on weight. (No clear corners.) The resulting irregular-shaped package costs about 54% less to ship. Insuring your shipment against damage or loss or theft costs 4% the value of the shipment.
You will need to the colors you want as well as all other details such as soft or hard packaging and insured or not. The order form on the next page tells us only the size, model and quantity, not color..
