In a world of fast fashion, where products are built to break after only a few months of use, you learn to cherish the brands doing the opposite. It’s refreshing to see companies who take pride in their manufacturing process, and who create products that will see many years of use. One such brand who have recently caught our eye is Arsante of Sweden. Their growing range of beautifully designed leather bags and sleeves are all handmade with carefully sourced, high-quality materials.
Arsante uses full-grain Italian bovine leather, which is classified as one of the best grades of leathers currently available. It offers durability, and it gives a natural, textured finish to the product. The finer details have been thought of too; the zippers on Arsante’s bags are from renowned Italian manufacturer Raccagni. Moreover, the zipper pullers are crafted from aircraft metal and reworked into the shape of an airplane propeller.
Arsante’s pieces exude elegance and luxury. The range includes tote bags, weekend duffles, backpacks, and even a car seat side pocket. The following are a few of our top picks of handmade leather bags from the collection…
A luxury weekend destination deserves luxury carry. That’s exactly what the Arsante WEEKEND offers. The bag’s large main compartment can hold a couple of days worth of gear. The polished zippers come down all the way to the base of the bag so you can easily see and access your belongings. Moreover, WEEKEND fits perfectly in the Tesla Model S frunk and BMW i8 trunk.
