Bruce Makowsky and his wife Kathy Van Zeeland believed that there was a void in the handbag market for high-quality, luxe bags at a reasonable price. The couple sought to fill this gap and reach out to customers that demanded fine styling, remarkable craftsmanship and practicality. Finally in 2006, the B. Makowsky handbag brand was born. All B. Makowsky handbags combine rich Japanese drum dyed leather with bold, sturdy hardware. B. Makowsky s signature style is reflected in each and every one of their bags with a paisley lining, satin-finished hardware and functional interior and exterior pockets. Although B. Makowsky is relatively new to the handbag market, its rapid success and popularity has been tremendous. With timeless styling, excellent quality and straightforward functionality, B. Makowsky handbags are sure to be a favorite of the sensible shopper and fashionista alike!
