Typically when buying a purse, the decision is left between fashion or function. However, our handbags give customers the opportunity to have both! Here at GRACESHIP, we believe women should not be limited with the choice of a handbag for work or travel. Today women are more on-the-go than they have ever been, so we tailored our handbags for their mobile lifestyle. All of our handbags feature a 15” laptop sleeve, credit card slots, multiple pockets to store chargers or lip gloss, and a luxurious chocolate colored interior. Now the only choice left to make is which style will you carry?


It all started back in 2008 when our founder, Emily Gimmel, was struck with the vision to create a world where women can be the ultimate girl boss without the dreaded hassle of carrying an unappealing briefcase. Emily understood that women crave the essential components of a briefcase, but desire the appearance of a handbag. The launch of GRACESHIP in 2012 did just that; these handbags made it possible for women to have a professional carry all. Today GRACESHIP is a mobile lifestyle brand exclusively for women. Our belief at GRACESHIP is that luxury is a lifestyle, not a price point.


“The opportunity to be a WBENC certified business is unlike any other. From the moment I began my career, I knew I wanted to make a difference in people’s lives. Having the support of other women, WBENC, and myself makes the GRACESHIP that much more special to me. I am honored to give women the necessary tools they need to carry throughout their career and personal life.”    - Emily Gimmel
