Glass Handbag was founded in 2010 after the initial designs were executed and the patent filed. The company sets to offer fashion plus function with an integrated light panel system in every handbag, created to be inexpensive and easy to operate using common AAA batteries. Our first production of luxury leather handbags are ready to market to a greater audience.
"I have always been frustated with handbags. For a long time I didn't even carry one because I could never find anything inside of it. After a particularly trying day of rummaging, I had an epiphany - I am going to make a handbag with a built-in light. After learning people have tried to put a light in handbags since the 1950's, I was still determined to find a way. I researched and finally found something that hadn't been done and was perfect for the purpose. After 1 year of research and pending approval, our patent finally came to fruition earlier this year. The first production of our bags is complete, and now we want to get the word out there!!!"
Tamara, CEO and Founder of Glass Handbag
"I've always had an entrepreneurial spirit and have started several companies in the past. From the first days that Tamara, my fiance, started this quest, I have given her my full support and encouragement along with offering my skills in developing a website, social media, and logistics. We make an excellent team and have accomplished all of our goals together; it may seem weird for a man to be in the handbag business, but I love it more than anything and I can't wait to bring this business to its full potential."
Chris, CFO and Co-Founder of Glass Handbag
As with any new and revolutionary product, there is always an initial hurdle to overcome in educating customers on a product's availability and functionality. We are trying to overcome this challenge and change the market's perception of a typical handbag. This Fundraise will help us achieve that goal by giving us a platform to showcase our handbag lines to customers worldwide.
Our current line is of a handmade, natural leather, each bag containing our patented lighting system. This is a page extracted from our website at www.glasshandbag.com so you can see our styles and unique bags for yourself.
Our handbags have received rave reviews during every show and presentation. The amazing lighting system is a great addition to the typical handbag.
We have also had great celebrity interest, shown below!

One of the biggest benefits to our handbag collection is protection for women. It's always nerve-racking rummaging through your purse in a dark parking lot, street, or park, and every woman knows the feeling. With our bags, all you have to do is open the handbag and the panel lighting illuminates automatically, showing you the contents of your bag and eliminating the time spent focusing on your bag instead of your surroundings.
