Handmade Bags for Women - Stylish + Crafted by Artisans
There is something special about buying a handmade bag, knowing that a talented artisan has crafted it and no other bag is the same as yours.

Handmade handbags nowadays come in a multitude of materials. Naghedi, pictured, makes impressive and stylish handwoven bags using neoprene, a hardwearing synthetic rubber used to make wetsuits. The creative mesh of colors makes these bags particularly special.

Handwoven straw bags are a specialty of Poolside Bags, a label that employs skilled artisan weavers in India. Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted with one on her arm at her bachelorette party in Mexico.

Nannacay supports artisanal families in Brazil who macrame and crochet the label's range of colorful and creatively designed handmade crochet bags. These handwoven skills pass through generations and form part of their South American culture.

Of course, handmade leather handbags are the height of luxury. Brands like Wandler and Mirta, which have a curated collection of leather handbags handmade by artisans throughout Italy, are worth exploring.
