Handbags made in Maine, somewhere in the middle of an alfalfa field! The name "Erda" is an ancient goddess of seasons and productivity, pretty much depicting the creative spirit and environment where they are made. Erda began in 1971 by Patti Dowse, who now has 14 collaboraters. The bags feature interesting shapes in either ultra soft deerskin, or boldly printed fabrics. Some are reversible, some have versatile straps to wear long, short or around the waist. All bags are roomy and casual.

REVERSIBLE! Messenger shape measures 12-1/2 x 9 x 3 inches...yes large enough for business paperwork. As shown, the buttery soft turquoise blue leather outside has a large open pocket in back, then under the flap is a full zip top, with unlined suede interior and 2 open pockets. There is also an open pocket IN the flap. To reverse to black leather showing, Flip the Flap and you have the zip top revealed, covering the open pockets now under the flap. Either way, 1 inch wide comfortable shoulder strap adjusts for shoulder or cross-body carrying.

You get one bag with 2 colors, as the flap can be flipped from front to back. We show it with the pattern fabric on the outside, but flip the flap, and it is solid black on the outside (an ultrasuede texture). Measures 7 x 7 x 2 inches. Open pocket on one side, a zipper pocket on the other, unlined interior. The strap adjusts 15-30 inches, and has lobster toggle on one side so you can even wear this around your waist! The Bluetooth fabric is woven with some low-cut chenille, dark blue threads mixed with navy, medium and light blues, celery and tourmaline greens.

Erda Great Pumpkin Bag in Mesa Blue (retired)
Erda Great Pumpkin Bag in Mesa Blue (retired)

Great Pumpkin is the larger version of a favorite, this one measures about 12 x 5 inches on semicircular bottom, rises 8 inches tall at the center and little higher where the fabric meets strap. Cords accent the shaping on the front. This bag will defy you to not find room for everything essential (okay, not file folders)! On the flat back side is a full open pocket. On the front is the curved zipper opening. Interior is unlined, but there are two open pockets along the back wall to organize. 1 inch wide strap adjusts up to 48 inches long (cross-body), and you can adjust it shorter (dare we say super-sized fanny pack too, but without quick release)? The Mesa Blue fabric is satin sheen hi-low texture in deep and rich tones of turquoise blue, chocolate, camel and gold.
Great Pumpkin size is retired...last call!
