About Erika

erika eckerstrand

Swedish–born designer, Erika Eckerstrand’s artistry is sophisticated, yet fun and filled with innovative elements. Her genuine passion is evident for uniting simplicity and functionality into contemporary beautiful bags and containers for the home.

Designs of Erika’s signature line of personal accessories and adornments include chic cross body bags, tote bags, and clutches. Her collections also consist of unique multi-purpose  wristlet bags for everyday or evening wear to larger travel messenger bags which offer sewn in zipped pockets and dividers for easing travel organization, be it for business or leisure.

What makes Designs of Erika’s collection unique is Eckerstrand’s nod to Scandinavian design. It’s sleek, clean and contemporary lines coupled with the durability and easy to clean industrial woven vinyl, that has been cleverly repurposed into light weight purses and home goods (like vertical hanging wine racks and basket containers), offered in a multitude of colors, patterns, shapes and sizes- from sophisticated to fun.

Certified as a New Mexico True artisan partner since 2016, all Designs of Erika bags and products are carefully hand crafted to perfection in her downtown Designs of Erika store in Santa Fe, New Mexico. Be sure to visit when in Santa Fe, at 211 Galisteo Street, near the Historic Plaza.
