Award-winning fashion designer Eve Baum’s goal when she started http://www.militaryhandbag.com was to create a patriotic company with purpose that could make a difference in people’s lives. Baum launched the military handbag and accessory company after a major from the U.S. Army sent her his fatigues in a box with a letter asking if she could transform them into a handbag for his mother and sister in time for Christmas. The one-of-a-kind, custom handbags and accessories Baum and her team now craft from military uniforms - from all branches of service - serve as a personal, constant reminder of loved ones that have just returned home, are deployed overseas, or have sacrificed their lives serving the country. Those without a loved one in the military can select from a variety of handbags created from donated uniforms. In addition, between 10 and 15 percent of each sale is donated to charities specifically benefiting troops and their families.
“To get started simply select your desired handbag or accessory design on our website, mail us your fatigues with name tags and patches, and we’ll reimburse your postage fee up to seven dollars,” said Eve Baum, founder of Militaryhandbag.com. “We’ll also work with you if you’d like us to design a custom product. Normally, you’ll receive the finished product in approximately two weeks. Our most popular items are custom handbags, backpacks, wallets, journals, pillows, kid’s accessories and baby blankets. We’ve done several custom fallen hero products – which are always very touching and emotional – it’s truly an honor for us to create them for the families,” concluded Baum.
Militaryhandbag.com can also embellish custom handbags and accessories with dog tags, name tapes, custom embroideries and flower pins. Military handbags and accessories start at $8 and go up to $85. Gift certificates are available on the company’s website.
