I'm Maranda the designer, creator, seamstress, marketing director, bookeeper, photographer of Maranda Lee the original Hot Mama Handbags!

I am the mother of two beautiful boys, Warren 5 and Wayde 3 who certainly keep me busy and on my toes at all times! We live in the mountains of Montana with our horses, dogs and cat. It is a beautiful place to raise our boys as I can see them riding their bikes, building tree forts and in general getting dirty while being boys!

After my first child was born, I wore my diaper bag proudly slung over my shoulder like a badge of membership into my new club of mommyhood.  After 2 years, I found myself longing for a smaller bag that was stylish and expressed my personality. I longing drooled over my non-mommy friends cute little purses and wished I could carry something similar but I still needed a place to put a few diapers and a sippy cup.  So after the birth of my second son, I stitched up a bag with lots of pockets and since then have been pleasantly surprised by the overwhelmingly warm reception I've received from mommies and non-mommies around the world!

Each bag and accessory is hand cut then sewn in my Bozeman, Montana studio.  Proudly made in the USA!  I strive to limit the waste during production and creation, using fabric cut offs for accessories and maximizing cutting tecniques to reduce our impact on the environment.
