Eileen was studying architecture when she discovered her real passion in life: Fashion. She decided to start with a line of accessories that reflected her love for vintage pieces. She had visited lots of flea markets while living in New York.

Eileen Garcia studied Architecture in Mexico and then studied Accessories Design in New York. She worked with stablished handbag designers such as Sang A and Joy Gryson.

Vintage handbags are the main inspiration. They have their own personality and were made with special care and attention to details. They also carry a story with them. To that end, the brand is influenced with those vintage sillouettes and their beautiful hardware.

Eileen Garcia bags are mostly made with calfskin but the brand loves to experiment with other materials as well, such as silk and cotton canvas.

Lately, Eileen Garcia has been exploring with new materials, such as recycled PET canvas. On the other hand, great new collaborations are coming up with textile and jewelry designers.
