Our direct-to-consumer approach allows us to create high-quality products without the high-fashion markup. We have made specific decisions about every aspect of a Naissant bag, all the way down to the hardware and lining. Our bags are made of 100% byproduct leather by skilled artisans who are part of the Leather Working Group, an influential organization that supports the ethical practice of leatherwork and limits its environmental impact. Our leather is vegetable-dyed, so there is no added chrome. Our bag linings are made with 100% organic cotton. And all our bag hardware is nickel-free to limit allergies and brushed with a 12-carat gold coating.

We aren’t trying to compete with name brands, we are going to become the next name brand by carving a unique and much-needed niche in the handbag market.
