ARTISANS & PARTNERS

Lahara champions local craftsmanship as much as design. Therefore we surround ourselves with incredible, creative people who believe in our project.

 

Lahara's story began in a small workshop in Milan run by three passionate artisans who have manufactured luxury bags for over 40 years. Massimo, Pino and Valter are essential in the development process and hours were spent together studying the art of bagmaking. 

 

Massimo is a master in hand stitching, a passion passed to him by his father. Not only is a hand stitch embellishing, but a safeguard for longevity. Every handbag was created with time and care, adorned by Massimo’s hand stitching, to last a lifetime. 

 

 

Today we also manufacture in a small family run artisan workshop near Florence close to our tannery. In the second generation, brother and sister Matteo and Caterina continue the tradition of artisanal bagmaking with a small team of six. Specialized in vegetable tanned leather, every hide is carefully selected and handcut and every bag is 100% made internally.

 

We developed our signature bag closure, the turning circle, with a small hardware workshop in Milan which also takes care of galvanising our hardware in satin gold.

 

We are thankful to count fabulous photographers, movie makers, illustrators and artists to our creative team, inspiring and defining Lahara's philosophy in every aspect.
