About For You By Mamie

Hi, I’m Linda! Thanks for visiting my website!

I run a one-woman business called ForYouByMamie. My grandchildren call me Mamie, so “Mamie” became part of my shop name. I love creating my bags, and after years of making them for friends and family I decided to go into business.

Did you know that handbags were originally only used by men to carry money and papers, similar to briefcases? But once pockets were introduced into men’s clothing, women took over the style. It coincided with the advent of traveling by train. Women needed to carry their “particulars” without depending on their husband. It also was a sign of independence and empowerment, giving women greater privacy and control of their personnel items.

Our choice of handbag is an extension of our inner selves. Are you quiet and introspective? A subtle, subdued design may be perfect for you. Do you have a bold side, ready to take on every challenge head-on? Then a brighter statement bag may be your signature.

At ForYouByMamie,LLC, I am committed to match your style while we work together designing the perfect, one-of-a-kind piece you will be proud to own for years to come. My bags are constructed using cottons and cork – an eco-friendly leather alternative. No animal will be hurt by the bags I construct!

Although I don’t design the patterns, I often modify parts of them based on what works for each of my clients. Choosing the fabrics, colors, and matching hardware are exciting aspects of creating each unique purse.

Let’s design one together!

I specialize in custom orders and look forward to working with you to design your perfect bag!!

Why Choose Us

Choose Perfection

Choose us because of our quality fabrics and workmanship. Each item is handcrafted individually with utmost attention to detail.

  • Premium Materials
  • The cork used for my bags is produced in Portugal, where the bark is removed from the tree every 9 years. The oak trees that provide the cork grow in the Mediterranean, and they are the only tree that thrives when the bark is harvested. This process makes cork 100% sustainable and eco-friendly.

    Cork leather is completely natural, vegan and renewable. It is soft and durable, easy to keep clean, and antimicrobial. Cork is the eco-friendly alternative to vinyl and leather. You will love its luxurious texture.

    mailed within 48 hours of ordering.

  • Return Policy
  • Refunds are accepted within 10 days of delivery and in original condition. Please contact us for directions. Buyer is responsible for return postage and any loss of value due to misuse.
