Art Handbags (made from wood) by Timmy Woods

A bit of nostalgia here for you. Back in 2010 (yes, our site is that old) we featured Bag Designer Timmy Woods’s Beverly Hills series. They were real works of art: innovative designs that appeal to women with a broad range of interests and lifestyles.

Inspired by handmade wooden boxes, Timmy seemed to make these handcrafted wooden handbags as a rather fresh statement in fashion and as sculpted pieces of art. Each bag was handmade from fallen Acacia trees. Forms of nature, pop trends, sports, hobbies, holidays and special events inspire the designs.

Each bag used to come complete with a certificate of authenticity and originality. Very arts-like, and very Hollywood. While Timmys bags are no longer available for purchase, they are still inspirational to us, so we’re still showing them and who knows, maybe inspire you to make your own designs.

Art Bags

These are all really unique albeit commercial art bags. As they are studded with crystals, one could even call them jewelry. However, that fact and the fact that they appeared in movies make these bags also pricey. Crystals are heavy, so be sure to check out the weight of them before purchasing.

Hopefully these bags inspire you to either design something fresh and new today, or to order yourself a cool glamorous handbag for your birthday or just because.
