Award-winning fashion designer Eve Baum’s goal when she started MilitaryHandbag.com was to create a patriotic company with purpose that could make a difference in people’s lives. Baum launched the military handbag and accessory company after a major from the U.S. Army sent her his fatigues in a box with a letter asking if she could transform them into a handbag for his mother and sister in time for Christmas. The one-of-a-kind, custom handbags and accessories Baum and her team now craft from military uniforms – from all branches of service – serve as a personal, constant reminder of loved ones that have just returned home, are deployed overseas, or have sacrificed their lives serving the country. Those without a loved one in the military can select from a variety of handbags created from donated uniforms. In addition, between 10 and 15 percent of each sale is donated to charities specifically benefiting troops and their families.
I recently was sent the Military Handbag of my choice to review here on my blog. Only I never had the chance to really use it. My daughter Allison (above photo) was quick to snatch the bag and clam it as her own. I can tell you that the bag is beautifully crafted and seems to be made of the highest quality. These days Allison can be seen carrying this bag just about everywhere she goes. She’s received several compliments on it and is always proud to share the MilitaryHandbag.com story.
Shop Militaryhandbag.com for a variety of styles, even a beautiful Military Bride To- Be! MilitaryHandBag.com can also embellish custom handbags and accessories with dog tags, name tapes, custom embroideries and flower pins.
Military handbags and accessories start at $8 and go up to $85. Gift certificates are available on the company’s website.
