Unique designs for the extraordinary person...wearable art!

About Us

ARTWEAR by ROBBIE  handcrafted handbags, established in 1998 in Brooklyn NY.  All the bags are currently handmade in our Pilsen studio located in Chicago, IL. 

The design and construction of our bags incorporate the use of wet or heat formed leather shapes and embossed surface designs hand carved into wooden blocks.  Nature, art, sculpture, ethnic masks and the beautiful colors of the Caribbean islands influence our designs.

The leather used to make the bags is selected for its quality, color and texture.  Each handbag is one of a kind in color and texture combinations and individually signed.

The “Robbie Bag” has been featured nationally in juried art shows, museum shops and fine art and craft galleries.
