Hand Maid By Michelle Frantz

Hand Maid by Michelle Frantz is a unique collection of designer handbags and accessories based in Los Angeles and founded by Michelle Frantz in 2001. Designer Michelle Frantz is currently creating her 10th collection of handbags and accessories which are sold in over 70 exclusive boutiques and department stores worldwide with showroom representation in New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo.

After graduating from UCLA with a Masters in Fine Arts, Michelle began experimenting with hand-cast resin and vintage fabrics to create a line of handbags completely unique to the fashion and accessories market. She swirled colors and trinkets into layers of resin to create beautiful handles. She would then cut and reassemble vintage dresses to complete the handbag. Every design incorporated a unique detail such as delicate hand beading, bows and pleats. These “one-of-a-kind” handbags developed a cult following in New York and Los Angeles among stylists and editors. After one very successful season, Hand Maid by Michelle Frantz was born.

Hand Maid by Michelle Frantz has grown over the past five years into an international, multi-faceted business. We use only the finest Italian leathers and many of our fabrics are designed and created by us. We also cast many of the pins and hardware that make our handbags unique. All the handbags are beautifully hand crafted with superior workmanship. Hand Maid by Michelle Frantz also has a line of small leather goods, including wallets and cosmetic bags.

We have received a generous amount of press on an international level and in 2001 Michelle was the recipient of the Gen Art Fresh Faces in Fashion award for accessories. Our handbags can be seen on the arms of our growing celebrity clientele, which includes: Madonna, Kate Hudson, Winona Ryder, Courtney Love, Heather Graham, Rose McGowan, Christina Aguilera and Debra Messing.

Every woman from the rock-and-roll rebel to the Southampton prep can find a Hand Maid handbag or accessory to suit her style!
