About It's a Lola!:
Nancy Mende, AKA Lola, helped form a high-end designer, hand-knit sweater line in the late '70s, called Les Deux Noisettes. Their stunning, one-of-a-kind creations were featured at Bloomingdales, Macy's, Barneys, Henri Bendel, among others. Within a year of the company's inception, it employed a staff of 75, including 25 meticulous knitters.

The Les Deux Noisettes line garnered incredible attention within the fashion world and beyond. Because of its unprecedented overnight success, the line was in jeopardy of becoming mass produced and copied. So Lola did the unthinkable. She went to Italy, got married, and moved on.

Kind of.

Since stepping away from 7th Avenue in the mid '80's, Lola has continued to enjoy an intimate, loyal fan base that commission her to design and create sweaters, throws and handbags.

Now, back by popular demand (pleading from her customers in New York, Boston and Miami) It's a Lola! returns with stunning handbags for day or evening.

Lola's silk, wool and chenille yarns are hand dyed in Italy, Chile, Peru and the U.S.; the straps are supple leather and suede; and the linings vintage or new silks, cottons or blends. Lola has also incorporated a "green" group with handles made from faux crock, natural woven materials and inlaid wooden handles.

Lola does not use patterns to design her bags. Her designs go directly from mind to skein, not from pen to paper. Lola will not duplicate her bags. Therefore, every bag is one of a kind. So when people ask you where you got your gorgeous hand-knit bag, you can say with confidence, "It's a Lola!"
