Since our opening Stripe has carried beautiful handmade leather bags made by Terry McInerny, or “Nuala”. These beauties are handcrafted right here in Santa Cruz, where she cuts, sews, and dyes the leather before it becomes one of her beautiful purses. Her bags are the perfect shape and size for a woman on the go who needs room for planners, wallets, compacts etc… while still seeking style. They come in a variety of colors, from rich chocolates and chestnuts, to dusty roses. Different lengths of shoulder straps allow them to be carried in the messenger style or simply over the shoulder for a more sophisticated look.  Her stunning purses aren’t all we carry in Stripe though, we adore her belts and cuff bracelets as well! Made out of the same gorgeous leather with vintage belt buckles, her belts are a great addition to any wardrobe! If you're looking for an alternative to a simple bracelet, try on one of Nuala's cuffs. Made out of vintage belts these bracelets are a great fall accessory.But of course our favorite thing about anything Nuala, after the product is worn for two or three weeks, the leather melts and becomes as soft as butter!. So check out Nuala at Stripe and you too will understand why we love Nuala!
