Robert Mason Signature Almeda Leather Bag
This classic, timeless and chic leather bag is perfect for the sophisticated woman in your life – and this woman could be YOU! Named for designer Robert Grimmett’s maternal grandmother, Almeda, this special genuine leather handbag was created in Columbus, Ohio, from local design, inspiration and production.
It’s all in the Details:
- Signature Top Grain Leather
- Handcrafted in Ohio
- Dark Brown with Burgundy Stripe and accents
- Accommodates a 15" laptop
- 11" x 14.5" x 4"
Almeda’s passion for design inspired her to open a small dress shop, initially offering only 12 dresses. After a swift brush with success, she moved to a larger store location where she expanded by adding men’s and kids’ apparel. Further popularity and growth led her to build a department store from the ground up, aptly named "Almeda's," which eventually grew to multiple store locations.
Designer and Founder, Robert Grimmett, fell in love with retail at a young age by spending time in his grandmother Almeda’s stores; appreciating the customer service aspect and enjoying his favorite spot to visit: the Gift Wrap room. Sadly, her businesses closed in the late 80's and early 90's, but Almeda’s memories live on with the people who grew up shopping in her stores.
Almeda was, and still is, Robert’s role model, biggest fan and someone whom is dearly missed.
Robert Mason is proud to introduce the Almeda Bag as a tribute to this classy, fashionable lady as it truly encompasses all of her fabulous characteristics.
