Handmade in New York City's garment district, our beautiful, minimalist bags are made with the finest Italian textiles and hardware.

Our Story

Carla Westcott founded her eponymous evening wear company after graduating from Parsons School of Design in 1994. Westcott evening wear has sold at Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, and boutiques internationally. In 2014, Westcott launched handbags and accessories. Minimal design and subtle branding result in clean silhouettes and a quiet aesthetic. The handbags are constructed of premier man-made textiles and hardware imported from Italy.  Each Westcott bag is assembled by skilled artisans employed in a family-owned business in New York's garment district.

Carla is a member of the Council of Fashion Designers of America.
