|Tolentino's Blue Ridge Mountains handbag|
Regional leather artist Sally Tolentino began creating handmade purses out of necessity from fabric scraps to give as Christmas gifts in tough times. Little did she know this was to lead her into an entirely new direction for a career! After consulting with friends in Milan, Italy her new business was born.
Each purse is a very personal matter to Sally. Her craft of making leather purses became a source of healing for her and a message to women everywhere. Each one of a kind bag not only reflects quality workmanship but is lined with a beautiful hand-stitched fabric. As Sally says, "I passionately desired to remind women of their inner beauty, which is so often devalued. Like flowers, we were created to blossom!"
