one-of-a-kind bags for A one-of-a-kind woman

Susan Tancer Studios creates a line of unique one-of-a-kind signature handbags. Each is hand-painted and meticulously crafted in her Palm Beach Gardens studio. Susan blends her own paints and sealants to ensure they have the look and feel of fine leather, then hand-signs each bag, making them true collectibles. Many are adorned with vintage brooches, found objects or hand-crafted sculptures. Her slow-fashion, eco-friendly line is known throughout the US and world by collectors who love her signature style and unexpected designs. Founded in 2004, Susan proudly donates 10% of her sales to MD Anderson Cancer Center
