Handmade Bags for Women - Stylish + Crafted by Artisans
Handmade bags are the height of luxury, knowing that a talented artisan has carefully crafted it by hand and no other bag is exactly the same as yours. You can find an interesting collection of brands here specializing in handmade bags in a variety of materials, from classic leather, natural straw, and modern neoprene.

Naghedi, pictured, makes impressive and stylish handmade bags using neoprene, a hardwearing synthetic rubber used for wetsuits. The creative handwoven mesh of colors makes these bags particularly unique.

You will find several natural handmade bag brands that work with straw, rattan, and wood. Poolside Bags employs skilled artisan weavers in India for its straw bags. Gwyneth Paltrow was spotted with a large personalized one from the brand on her arm at her bachelorette party in Mexico.

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

Of course, a handmade leather bag is incredibly luxurious, with the best bags handcrafted in Italy and Spain. Wandler handmade bags are made in Italy and Mirta's curated collection of handmade bags crafted by artisans throughout Italy is definitely worth exploring.
