Hank & Henrietta was created from my love for handbags, beautiful leather, & handcrafted goods.
When designing each piece I try to create unique bags that are one of a kind & a product that stands out in a crowd.
Hank & Henrietta is reviving the time honored Artisan craft of handmade leather goods. Every piece is thoughtfully designed & crafted in-house using the finest leather hides handpicked with unique features and marks that add character and beauty to each product.
Each bag and accessory is made one by one in my workshop here in Salinas, California.
Dollies. Pom Pom Earrings are a new amazing product we are handcrafted to add fun, color and fashion to your look.

Melissa De La Rosa
I have always had a passion for creating beautiful things & a love for fashion.
I grew up in Salinas, California home of the Salinas Rodeo. I'm a wife to the most loving & supportive husband & Mom to two incredible daughters.
I learned to sew & leathercraft in 4-H, worked in fashion retail & marketing so when I wanted to go back to work after 19 years as a stay at home Mom the most amazing opportunity for me was creating Hank & Henrietta.
I am blessed to create handbags for Y'all and love to give you the look that has you standing out in a crowd.
