One of a kind vintage - Get it before it's gone.

How did handbags by a woman from small-town Kentucky get to be a national sensation?  Her high-quality needlepoint work and beautiful designs.  This one is a lovely calla lily and floral design in pink, green, blue on a black needlepoint background.  The floral pattern is on both sides.  Faux tortoise shell chain. Unique locking closure.

Maud Hundley with her daughter Betty Carrico started their home workroom in 1947 in Anchorage, a suburb of Louisville Kentucky.  She got her start sewing for the Red Cross during WW II.  Customers picked both the design and the frame. Hundley's studio moved to Middletown, KY in the 1960s and closed after her death in 1985.

Ida Jolles founded Jolles Original in Vienna in 1923. As a young housewife, Ida was asked by a cousin to get him needlepoint upholstered dining room chairs. But needlepoint was a dying art.  After some searching, Ida found the last remaining producer in Vienna, and ordered a set.  From there she created a luxury handbag brand. Famous for modernizing the art of petit and needlepoint, her purses sold in high end stores, and are collectors’ items today.  In an era when women did not lead businesses, she built a company that employed over 20,000 workers and controlled 90% of a global market. Ida Jolles passed away in the 1960s.  Her great granddaughter has recently relaunched the brand.
