If you want a bag that's thoughtfully designed yet actually functional on a daily basis, one of the brands our editors are obsessing over is Kintu New York. Founded by Sarah Nakintu in 2015, the purses are designed in New York, developed with artisans all over the globe, then made in Italy.
The luxurious bags are special because they're made with "a combination of the craftsmanship of Italian leather makers and the handicraft of artisans from India (Indian handwoven luxury brocade) and Kenya (Hardware). Kintu bags are consciously crafted from strong and hard-wearing 100-percent natural vegetable tanned leather sourced from the best European tanneries," according to the brand. This type of leather is worth every penny because it's known for its durability and flexibility.
Ahead, we curated a shopping guide to the chic, head-turning bags you should invest in. They're the types of pieces you'll treasure for years to come.
