Where Fashion, Art, and Culture Intertwine

Welcome to Timmesse, the first black-owned luxury handbag brand in Arizona that seamlessly blends art, culture, and fashion to create groundbreaking designs. Established in 2020, we are thrilled to introduce the 'Run Up A Check Collection', a truly unique and striking line that pushes boundaries and sets new expectations for handbags.

Our talented handbag designer, Timmesse Thompson, sought divine inspiration when bringing this collection to life. She envisioned handbags that embody the innovation of Missy Elliot, the grace of Michelle Obama, the bravery of Harriet Tubman, and the audacity of her grandmother Cornelia Crawford. The result is a collection that combines the best qualities of these remarkable women into each handbag. Inspired by historic African American women, our handbags pay tribute to their incredible contributions. Beep Beep, The Assignment, I'm Outside, and All The Smoke are not merely handbags; they represent the spirit, innovation, grace, bravery, and audacity of Missy Elliot, Michelle Obama, Harriet Tubman, and Cornelia Crawford, respectively.

In addition to the stunning 'Run Up A Check Collection', we are excited to present the Rock-A-Bye-Baby Gift Bag and the Keisha Blackout Gift Bag. These add-on purchases continue our tribute to black culture and offer a complete shopping experience. The Rock-A-Bye-Baby Gift Bag exudes elegance and sophistication, while the Keisha Blackout Gift Bag draws inspiration from the iconic New Jack City film, adding a unique and edgy flair to your ensemble.

The 'Run Up A Check Collection' features four all-new, exclusive iridescent color varieties. Each handbag refracts light, creating a mesmerizing play of vivid hues. This unique feature adds a captivating element to the already stunning designs, ensuring that your Timmesse handbag stands out from the crowd.
