Stefka handbags are meticulously designed with attention to every detail. Stephanie's inspiration from structure and modern architecture is obvious. Our customers are women who appreciate clean, modern lines and a timeless look. However each bag features an intricate detail to set Stefka apart from the rest.

Previously hand-making all of her pieces, she decided it was time to take Stefka to the next level and set out to find a manufacturer. In keeping a promise to herself she wanted to keep manufacturing in America, even better, in NYC.

Stephanie has deep roots in New York City, her grandmother and mother were born and raised in Manhattan. Needless to say, a love of fashion, architecture, and design have been ever present in her life. Learning to sew at a very young age, watching her mother design clothing, drawing, painting and being creative all her life has played a very important part in bringing Stefka to be.

Inspiration for the collection comes mostly from a love of structure and organized clean lines. Wanting the bags to be timeless and something you can grab from your closet for years and years. However Stephanie likes to keep things interesting and more importantly, original by adding little details that are unexpected, be it the way the straps are connected or the silhouette of the bag itself.

Stefka handbags are made using a heavy weight leather, that will hold up the structure commanded by each design. The type of leather used is mostly vegetable tanned leather which only gets better with age.

Stefka is a new brand formed from a love of design and well made products. Stephanie's mission is to use American manufacturers, and to continue to produce classic pieces that can be used everyday, be it the beach, travel, shopping, brunch, date night etc etc.
