Among the Collins treasures in Medina, we hold the entire collection of Enid Collins original art works, patterns and designs in our archives. Although all the new contemporary styles that we are developing are rooted in " Collins elements “, we make a distinction between the original " Classic designs " and those that are being inspired by them! We have resumed the production of the Classics, just as it was before, applying 1960's vintage Rhine Stone and other ornaments that we have in stock from the period. Our patterns, screens ,tools and methods have not changed, but just the process as our production is not nearly as high as it was in the past. We produce one or two style at a time and in much smaller numbers. The available styles for purchase are posted under Products tab/Classics. You can order the style you choose and expect 4 to 6 weeks for delivery. You can also call 830-589 2222 for inquiries and availability. You will receive a certificate in the package with your new Collins Classic Jeweled Bag made to your name or the name of the person you wish the bag to go. This certificate is issued with a serial number that matches the number inside your new Collins Classic hand bag.
During the fifties, sixties and through the seventies Collins of Texas with a unique and glamorous background, left warm memories for generations of customers as well as collectors who continue to add to their Collins treasures. We are inspired and moved by the passion of Collins fans to revitalize our historical values and creative assets into new lines of products for today’s market. Our philosophy to bring back Collins into the life style of American consumers is not based on joining the race and competition of today's trendy fashion world. Rather, we intend to rebuild our brand by re-establishing its unique and authentic identity that has penetrated the hearts of generations of customers and admirers.
