Named after characters in a play that sibling founders Anthony and Amy Pigliacampo created as kids, freddy&ma is all about improvisation. Known for bright, boldly-patterned canvas handbags in sturdy, classic silhouettes, the company launched as a Website in May 2006 and opened this homey showroom—complete with a tiny pet dog named Rocko—soon afterward. Online shoppers search through thousands of mostly youthful, retro designs and piece together an affordable bag by selecting shape, pattern, color, and hardware. Studio appointments allow customers to alter colors, tweak patterns, and add initials to bags. Groups of girlfriends can rent out the adjacent loft space for purse-designing parties. Whether created online or in-house, all bags are assembled in a Jersey factory and take three to four weeks to arrive.
