Penny Sipple, Leathergoods

I have been designing and hand crafting leather handbags and accessories using soft, supple, top grain cowhide since the 1970's, wholesaling and exhibiting in juried show through out the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic states. Every hide has unique qualities and must be used in the most suitable ways. New styles are often created by making the best use of the individual hides or by adapting special requests to my established styles. I offer both classic styles and one of a kind pieces.
