Works of Art (that you carry) by Hester van Eeghen

Sometimes I look at Hester van Eeghen's designs and I swear they belong in a gallery. Her work actually is in a Dutch museum and many museum shops around the world. Hester's handbags, briefcases, wallets, and gloves evoke a feeling of bold creativity and the true passion she puts into every design.

Hester's interplay of bold colors reminds me of Rothko.

The unexpected angles and geometric shapes are little sculptures you just happen to carry on your arm.

Hester's wallets are like beautiful landscape paintings in leather.

Monocle by Hester van Eeghen

The Monocle is high visual impact pop art with a sculpted shape.

And even the hidden interiors of Hester's bags reveal unexpected pops of color and ingenuity.

And when you take a moment to examine the details, the beauty of function and form is breathtaking.

Come visit our online "gallery" and enjoy the artistry of Hester van Eeghen's designs. I'd love to hear what you think. -Debby


  1. I regret the day in Amsterdam at the Handbag Museum when I didn't by the St. Moritz bag,,the multicolored fur one... what a mistake that was!
