The Barbara
We all need a classic bag, one we can carry with our navy or camel wool peacoat or our black or brown leather jacket, and “The Barbara” fits the bill. Measuring in a standard purse size, this bag is available in wool, tapestry or cotton. Made with stiffening, “The Barbara” stands on its own, but is nearly weightless! Braided 22 inch handles fit easily over the shoulder (even a bulky jacket) without a struggle. The coordinating cotton lining features six interior pockets ranging in sizes to accommodate your cell phone, keys and make-up. Most Barbara bags are finished with a zipper.

New this year, Diane added a line of whimsical mittens. Exquisitely made using combinations of fine fabrics and recycled sweaters and buttons, each pair of mittens is warm and one-of-a-kind. Neutral or bold, elegant or fun, conservative or wild, you are sure to find a pair of mittens to match your style. Slide your hands into these fleece-lined bad boys and you’ll get your mother-in-law something else for her birthday and keep these for yourself! Also, choose a pair of mittens to compliment your “Barbara” bag, completing the look with a coordinating scarf!

The elegant simplicity of “The Barbara” makes it perfect for your dress pants and wool overcoat, but versatile enough to look great with jeans. It is truly the classic bag meets the modern world - an iPad fits standing up!
