Abbie Caplinwas born and raised in Corrales, New Mexico when it was still a small, sleepy farming community. She has always been an entrepreneur, a visionary and a traveler.
Realizing at any early age, that “Pretending to be a Normal Person is Exhausting” to coin a phrase from Suzy Toronto, she chose her own course of entrepreneurship; Horsewoman, Retail Enthusiast, Restaurant Owner, Earring and Handbag Designer – creating several small and manageable businesses, bringing them to fruition and then selling them to create the next one.
Abbie is connected to her designs in leather, cowhides and adornments. When the hair stands up on her arms, she knows it is just the right item and that this combination will lend itself to a bag that will make a statement all by itself. In collaboration with craftswoman Mary Girven, Abbie has created a stand-alone look and style that can cross many borders. She is consistently striving to create the best, most functional designer handbag ever.
