Our Story

Inspired by a family legacy of love, heritage, and loss

In 1952, Maria Caruso Martin's grandmother lost her life when an American Airline plane crashed into her father's family home. The only surviving possession was her grandmother's handbag with a single letter inside, written in 1919 by Maria's grandfather.

In this letter, he asks Maria's grandmother to await his return from service in the Italian army, so they could marry. Maria's grandmother carried this letter in her handbag every day of her life.

Amidst great loss, a true love story endures, inspiring Maria to create timeless wedding heirlooms and bridal handbags for today's modern brides.

Every purchase supports VOW for Girls

Every year, 12 million girls are married before they turn 18. That’s one girl married every 3 seconds, robbed of her future and put at risk of violence, ill health, and trapped in poverty. But change is possible. The Mrs. Collection will donate $10 from every purchase, to end child marriage. Every girl has the right to a safe and healthy future, including the right to choose if, when, and whom to marry.
