Anyone Familiar With Alexander Ruhtenberg Handbags??

Dec 5, 2006

Is anyone familiar with this designer handbag? I stumbled on it while looking for something else and am intrigued by one of the hobo bags...the Alexander in carmel. Here's what I found written about the designer...

Ruhtenberg Handbags is a line I recently discovered through a friend and am totally impressed and blown away with at the amazing quality and detail put into each piece. The designer, Tyler Lewis, was literally born a designer - growing up in Colorado she would dream up her own dresses which in turn her mother would then make for her out of silks the family collected from their travels - prety cool!
Each bag comes with some type of custom hardware such as Greek coin rivets and feather-shaped zippers. Inside the bags are lined with vibrant colored 100% vintage French silk. Crafted out of sumptuous leathers that only get better with age, the clutches and carryalls are all handmade in Monterey, Ca.
These bags are beautiful! You can find them online at
I know them well...and since there are no stores in's been quite the wait, but I finally got my dream bag...I'll post pictures when it arrives. It's an Alexander in bone. Can't wait to get him home! :heart:
