As Timeless As the Places You Take It

I have been designing and marketing bags for other brands my whole career. Until I created Patricia Nash Designs, people had been encouraging me for years to come up with my own line of handbags. My response was always the same: Until I found something truly special, I wouldn’t put my name on it.

One day, while helping my mother clean out her closet, I found a vintage leather handbag with intricate tooling and designs. It evoked an emotional response in me, bringing up memories about family and my travels abroad in Europe. Throughout the years, I had collected vintage Italian handbags that I discovered in second-hand and antique shops. I love the old world hand-craftsmanship and the beautiful Italian veg tan leather. I love the way these old bags weathered and how each one looks as if it could tell a story.

Like my mother’s handbag that she had kept sitting in her closet for 50 years, all wrapped up securely, each bag holds so many memories. I decided this was something worth pursuing, and ever since I have been pouring my heart and soul into the bags that you see in stores today.

We often say that a Patricia Nash handbag is as timeless as the places you take it. I genuinely believe that, and I carry my own bags with me wherever I go. Whether traveling abroad, shopping, going to work, or hanging out with your family, there is a Patricia Nash accessory that has the form and function you can count on. I work hard to make sure each style makes a woman feel special and inspired, ready for the next adventure in her life. And now with our Men’s Collection, Nash for Men, the men in your lives can also enjoy the rich Italian leather and functional detail that they need.

I travel a lot in this business and am away from my family a great deal. But when I am back home in Knoxville, I cherish those moments with family. I hope you share my passion for life and take a moment to breathe and reflect on what means the most to you. As I always say, enjoy the moment!
