The ESSE Purse Project

The ESSE Purse Project is our online exhibit created by YOU. The concept of this project is simple: We believe a woman’s essence shows through her purse and its contents.

You can join the Project by emailing a photo of your purse and its contents to with the subject line “ESSE Purse Project.” Include as much information about yourself as you care to reveal, but most participants include the following information:

  • Name
  • Age
  • Occupation
  • Any details about your bag and special contents that are important to you.

OR Follow this Link to Submit your Purse

Please also be sure to add ”I give The ESSE Purse Museum full permission to use this photo.” Photos should be as square as possible and, if shot with a cellphone, emailed “actual size.” If shot with a camera, please send them with a resolution of 300.
