While on vacation in March of 1982, Patricia & Barbara were awaiting a flight in Atlanta when they noticed a definite lack of feminine-looking luggage. The longtime friends wasted no time in correcting this situation. Within weeks, these dynamic women had created a company, named after Barbara's mother, capable of marketing & manufacturing their cleverly designed products. The demand for these unique handbags & luggage items has grown & so has Vera Bradley, which is now nationally & internationally recognized.
For over 20 years, Vera Bradley has had a loyal following of customers who not only look forward to their lovely new fabrics & styles that are introduced each season, but who also appreciate the function & quality that is synonymous with the name.
