dutchy was started in 2004 by designer Audree Halasz, a fun-loving San Francisco girl next door. Audree began to develop her fashion and design sense as a young girl in the ’70s, when her parents owned a fashion boutique. In 2001, after years of costume design, Audree began designing and sewing her own handbags. She was so impressed with the positive feedback she received that she decided to form her own company—dutchy.
dutchy is named after Audree’s dad. It was his nickname growing up, when to be "in dutch" meant always getting into mischief—something he never ceased to do.
Today you can let dutchy bring out your mischievous side. Audree designs every dutchy with your playful, independent spirit in mind.
Celebrate your originality.
