This page features short handle style bags from the various designers offered at The Artful Soul. For this page, we show handle bags that may literally have a handle to carry them, as well as shorter straps so the bag is carried by hand, and not on the shoulder. This style is very elegant to wear, and there are no straps getting caught in things. However, many of these offer optional long strap attachments, or handle removal to use as a clutch, so check the item description carefully!
So many possible styles in our inventory of handbags and accessories, try also Search or Style & Functions links to left. Also note, there may be items in this style in our Handbags Outlet.

We have selections from a few of our artists shown below. To see more work by any artist represented, you may click on the Item Title, then click where indicated to get the full artist page!

Measures about 8 x 7 x 5 inches, closes with button and loop over the top. Interior lined in black with small open pocket. No zipper. There is also a wide open pocket on the outside. Shorter 14 inch fabric handles for hand-hold carrying only.
