After 23 Introduces the North Woods Collection, Their Newest Handbag and Accessories Line

Known for the fabulous fabric combinations used in their handbags, After 23 is expecting this new product line to sell out quickly. The collection consists of their most popular handbag styles created in woodsy toned prints along with plaid flannel blanket scarves and hand knit rolled brim hats.

The North Woods Collection

​After 23 is proud to announce its newest line of handmade handbags and accessories launching on October 18, 2016.

Recognized for their unique combinations of fabrics, After 23 continues to wow their customers with their fabric choices for the North Woods Collection.

I am amazed at the number of women who claim they never look good in hats but fall in love with the rolled brim hat when they try it on. It is just one of those styles that look good on everyone!

Lynn Bostrom, Owner/Designer

Inspired by the colors of the woods of Maine, the line features three of their most popular style handbags in rich, woodsy tones of chestnut brown, oxford gray and crimson. Styles include a hobo shoulder bag, a top zippered tote and a wristlet. One of the benefits of their bags is they include an inside zippered wall pocket, unlike most handmade handbags which usually have only slip pockets.

Also included in the line are plaid flannel blanket scarves, a new addition to their hugely successful scarf collection, as well as new colors in their hand knit rolled brim hats, a customer favorite. Owner, Lynn Bostrom, says, “I am amazed at the number of women who claim they never look good in hats but fall in love with the rolled brim hat when they try it on.  It is just one of those styles that look good on everyone!”

Whether you are looking for something for yourself or to start your holiday shopping, don’t wait. There are limited quantities of each design are available.
