About Us

 
imageSylvester “Robbie” Robinson and Gail Robinson design and make wearable art leather handbags and accessories.

The design and construction of the bags incorporates the use of wet or heat formed leather shapes and surface designs.  These are made using hand carved wood blocks. 

The leather used to make the bags is selected for its quality, color and texture.  All our bags are handmade in our studio in Chicago.  Each handbag is one of a kind in color and texture combinations and is individually signed.

The" Robbie Bag" handbags and pouches has been featured nationally in juried art shows, museum shops, galleries, and resorts including the Smithsonian Museum Shop, San Francisco Museum of Art museum shop, Philadelphia Museum of Fine Art museum shop, , American Craft Council, Brooklyn Academy of Music, NY; New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, New Orleans; Metris Uptown Art Fair (Best of Show, Fiber), MN; ST.
