Established in May 2013, C.A.S. Handmade inc. is the creation of Cara DesJardins. A native Rhode Islander, Cara’s early exposure to sewing and textile design is the seed that sprouted into a unique line of stylish bags, totes, clutches, home textiles and clothes.

Cara graduated from the University of Rhode Island with a degree in textile engineering and earned over ten years experience designing and creating in several textile industries. She took her passion to the next level combining her love for fabrics, color, and craftsmanship and developed a line of custom handbags and pillows made from all natural hand painted linen and leather. The natural linen compliments the earth mineral pigments she uses to paint her bags. Cara creates a very natural simplistic style that she strives to maintain in each of her bag styles.
