Barbara J Crouthamel, Founder of Lovin My Bags which offers full Handbag Restoration services as well as Handbag Beauty Care Products. In 2003, Barbara received her Interior Design Diploma from Sheridan College. She started using her design skills on leather, designing hand printed leathers. Her leathers have been used on Designer furniture pieces and most recently as part of her Exclusive line of Designer Leather Handbags.
Barbara has an International flair – having lived four years in Istanbul Turkey, she developed a love for design and diversity that is revealed in her leather fashions.
Lovin My Bags grew as an extension of the Handbag Design business. In 2006, after a trip to Italy, Barbara realized the need for leather care specifically designed for handbag leathers. She immediately collaborated with husband Gary, who develops leather restoration systems and products, and created Lovin My Bags, the only Company in the world that creates leather care products and services exclusively for Designer Handbags
