Kim White Handbags

Kim White Handbags are the perfect bag: functional, stylish and comfortable, made in the most amazing fabrics known to man.

Why are Kim White Handbags so special? Made from vintage automotive fabrics, Kim White uses dead stock never-used textiles intended for use in American automobiles: cars, trucks and vans. She fortuitously unearthed an entire warehouse of automotive fabric, which may be the last existing stock anywhere in the US, and she is the sole owner of these amazing textiles. Each Kim White Handbag is tagged with the year and make of the fabric, so you know exactly what car your bag comes from (i.e.: 1983 Camero or a 1978 Ford Mustang). Kim White Handbags specializes in automotive fabrics from the 1970s and 1980s, when color was de rigueur in the automotive industry.

Kim White Handbags make use of chrome hardware which ties-in nicely to the automotive theme. All bags are luxuriously lined and are designed for comfort and style. Since these textiles were originally intended for use in cars, they are incredibly durable. Perfect for handbags in style as well as function. Kim White Handbags, in keeping with the tradition of the American car industry, are sophisticated, beautiful and built to last. And just like American automobiles, they have a widespread appeal, from trendy teens to stylish grandmothers and every woman in between.

In addition to her collection of vintage automotive textiles, Kim has also unearthed some of the most gorgeous vintage florals from decades past. Added to the line recently, the wonderful vintage florals were originally intended for use in furniture from the 50s through the 70s. The beauty and detail in these textiles are beyond beautiful, and the craftsmanship harkens back to a time when the beauty was truly in the details. And of course, the durability lends itself perfectly to ladies handbags.

Proudly designed and manufactured in the U.S.A.

Kim White, serendipitously, lives minutes from the Peterson Automotive Museum in Los Angeles.
