About Us

Barbara Crouthamel is the founder of Lovin' My Bags by Barbara, the premier handbag spa that offers exclusive products and services exclusively for designer handbags.

Lovin My Bags was born in 2005 after a trip to Italy, where Barbara realized the need for leather care specifically designed for handbag leathers.  She immediately collaborated with husband Gary, a leatherologist who develops all of the restoration systems and products for Lovin' My Bags.

Lovin My Bags by Barbara is the only company in the world that creates specific leather care products and services exclusively for designer handbags.

Barbara is an interior designer by trade and uses her design skills in designing exclusive, hand-printed leathers.  Her leathers have been used on designer furniture pieces and as an integral part of her exclusive line of designer handbags.

Barbara is blessed with an international flair - having lived four years in Istanbul, Turkey - she has a love for design and diversity that is revealed in her leather fashions.
"My business is a labor of love -
we share a love for leather, love for fashion, love for design and,
most of all, a love for our customers.
We are here to help restore all fashionable friends to their previous glory -
some for emotional reasons, others for aesthetic reasons ...
After all, our handbags reflect a part of us,
and the prettier she, is the happier we are ..."
--- Barbara Crouthamel
