Cathy White creates evening bags using antique silver and gilt frames sourced from international markets and pairing them with vintage trim and fastenings. Every item is handmade in her own home with care and love and is completely unique.
She has vast experience with textiles and vintage collectibles, having set up the much loved Dublin boutique Anastasia in Dublin in the 1980’s and more recently The Dalkey Design Company. During this time she developed a passion for all things vintage and especially vintage bags from the 1920’s and 1930’s.
In 2008 she started collecting vintage handles from bags that had worn out and remade them using vintage fabrics and pure silk. Initially the pieces were gifted to friends but demand saw that she was soon selling at The Winter fair in Dalkey and with The Design corner in Dun Laoghaire.

Cathy works from home in her studio in Killiney and has made many bespoke bags for brides, who can choose their own handle and fabric and will have a lifelong memory of their special day. See more information about Bridal Collection.
