Edgar Rodelheimer and Theodore Steinman founded Accessocraft somewhere around 1930 in New York City. The company was mildly successful and the name was submitted for trademark in 1935 finally receiving in in December 1940. Accessocraft may have not gotten the name recognition of some of the other brands but their quality tended to outshine others. Their brand grew in the 1940's when they worked with the British War Relief Society and The Committee to Defend America. By the 1950's Accessocraft began to take off in popularity. Higher quality began to shine and designers took notice wanting to work with Accessocraft. Customers became loyal and the brand flourished til around 1998 when style changes and trends moved away from the designs they were making.
