About Patricia Nash
Meet the designer behind the brand.
Infused with inspiration, Patricia Nash draws on her extensive travels and fond memories of cherished people and places.
Patricia Nash has been designing premium leather handbags for over 20 years while with other companies. During that time she honed her expertise designing for a wide range of global brands from Disney and Warner Bros. to Banana Republic, Express and American Eagle, to name a few. Finally, inspired by a challenge from a friend, Patricia set out to launch Patricia Nash Designs in 2010. She was met with an overwhelmingly positive response, and in just a few short years has extended her brand to large department stores like Macy’s, Dillard’s and Nordstrom along with boutiques across the country. But behind it all, Patricia is constantly inspired by her love for family, passion for travel and the memories she’s gained along the way. The details and methods in each product are meticulous, adhering to old world craftsmanship and techniques like hand-dying, hand-cutting, hand-sewing, with hand-burned edges and a hand-embossed logo. When asked about her career, Patricia says, “I absolutely can’t imagine doing anything else. This is my passion, and it excites me every day.”
