Carol Schepker-Miller’s handbag business has evolved from many years working in the New York fashion industry.  She says she feels lucky to have had the opportunity to work in an industry where she could spend many years traveling to the fashion capitals of the world. 

Carol Miller describes her love for handbags: “my first love has always been handbags.  I love the smell of the leather, the suppleness of it and the way I can mold it to a shape I love.  I also enjoy creating my own colors and patterns with the tanneries I work with in the US and in Europe.” Carol says that a memorable meal starts with the best ingredients; she uses the finest leathers from Italy, Germany, Colombia, and the US.  Her fabrics, linings, and hardware are top of the line. 


To clean your bag, she recommends you use saddle soap, and to waterproof it, use Neetsfoot oil.  Always test the product on a part of leather that is hidden, such as under the strap, or beneath the flap of the bag.
