From customized leather key chains to high end tote bags, the products are manufactured by two companies that share one factory in Melville.
For this week's "Made on Long Island," News 12's Jenn Seelig takes you inside the facility where everything is made from luxurious leather.
Starting off as a diary company in 1969 - Graphic Image is a family-owned business in Melville.
Flipping through the decades, the company grew into a home line that manufactures customized leather books, planners, accessories, including photo frame backs -- creating products for popular high-end brands.
About 12 years ago, Tom Glazer, president of Graphic Image introduced a new fashion brand to his family business. GiGi New York, a designer handbag company, a separate brand, that shares the same factory as Graphic Image. Clutches, crossbody bags, and totes - each purse is designed, stitched, and shipped from the Melville factory.
