The modern American holiday of Mother's Day was first officially recognized in 1910 in West Virginia, the home state of the original Robert Mason Company.

Almeda

While growing up in West Virginia, Designer and Founder Robert Grimmett was very close to his maternal grandmother, Almeda. Almeda was a remarkable woman. In 1948 Almeda opened a small dress store that quickly grew into a chain of department stores. Starting with only 12 dresses Almeda’s stores grew because of her dedication to quality, customer service and her unerring sense of style. Robert credits his grandmother for his interest in fashion, accessories and classic design. As a result of his many visits to Almeda’s (as the stores were called) Robert fell in love with retail at very young age. His favorite spot in the store was the Gift Wrap Room and that’s where he learned all about the importance of quality committed customer service.

As a tribute to his grandmother Robert has designed the Almeda Handcrafted Leather Bag. The Almeda Bag honors this classy, fashionable lady as it truly encompasses all of her fabulous characteristics: quality, style, practicality and beauty.

The perfect Mother’s Day gift, the Almeda Handcrafted Leather Bag is handcrafted in Ohio and made out of top grain leather. The Almeda has classic styling and contemporary function. It can accommodate a 15" laptop with inside pockets to store other precious day-to-day objects. It closes on the top with a sturdy zipper and has classic silver chrome hardware to secure the sturdy adjustable shoulder strap.

With Mother’s Day just around the corner it’s time to shop for that perfect gift for the women in your life. Whether it’s your mother, sister, grandmother, wife or girlfriend, they deserve the very best from the people that love them.
