Debbie Orlando

Every byedebbieorlando creation is designed and handcrafted by Debbie Orlando.

Debbie begins with a vision, then a rough sketch, mapping the details out with “good old math skills”. A prototype or two is made and then sewing for retail begins. No patterns are used and no two bags are fabricated exactly the same so every customer has their own unique bydebbieorlando creation.

Each design is structured (no “floppy” bags here), sturdy, and constructed with utmost attention to detail. Quality materials and a bit of love go into every creation.

Debbie started sewing in grade school and was taught all the basics by her sister. Through the years, she made clothing for herself then her daughter and later her granddaughter. The sewing machine was idle for years, however, until 2013 when Debbie couldn’t find a purse in the retail world she liked. The sewing machine was brought out of the closet and she made her own purse. This was the start of her passion for designing and handcrafting a line of bags.

Debbie lives in Manchester Park, IL with her husband, Bob, who is a huge support and help with her business.
