Chelli Harms started making herself handbags in 2001 because she couldn't find styles she liked in stores. Ten years later, her fun side project turned into a full-blown line of purses and bags, CHC (Chelli Harms Collection). CHC makes bags to be the modern woman’s reliable and stylish sidekick. All their leather is sourced in the US and the bags are handmade in Chicago. They’re the kinds of bags you’re going to love for years, plus, 10% of profits is donated to WINGS, an organization empowering women and providing services to end domestic violence and homelessness.
