We're leather experts. Real, honest-to-goodness leather created by hand in tanneries using techniques both honed over generations and transformed for this moment. We curate our collection with a commitment to quality, an eye for beauty and a mission to discover the unexpected. Our goal is to source the best so you can create a bag that works for your life and speaks to your unfettered individuality.
Leather has long been one of nature's most durable and functional materials. In fact, the earliest leather artifact dates back 4,000 years! Our leathers are cowhides from tanneries in the US, Italy, Spain and South America that adhere to the highest environmental standards. We use cow leather because it's the right weight and durability for our products, so you can expect your Laudi Vidni bag to last for several years, with very little upkeep.
Choose beauty over banal. Relish vibrantly saturated colors and subtly sophisticated hues. Marvel at the mastery used to create Dark Knight leather that makes you wonder if it's actually leather. (Answer: it is). Let your fingers embrace the buttery feel of Soft Grain Indigo or the velvety texture of Jet Set Taupe, and explore the intricate pattern of Woven Black. We seek out leathers that go beyond the ordinary and delight both sight and touch.
We stock an incredible selection of over 50 leathers, ensuring you'll have just what you need to create your perfect bag. The cornerstone of our offering is the Signature Collection, with its vast range of textures, colors and finishes. Our Luxe Collection represents a finely edited assortment of the most innovative and dramatic leathers.
All of our leathers are scrutinized for durability and functionality and as a result, not all of our leathers are available on all parts of bags. We bring in new leathers each Spring and Fall (or more often if we find one we simply can't live without!). We discontinue occasionally when a tannery alerts us the leather is no longer available (sigh).
Our tanneries adhere to the highest environmental standards in the US, Italy, Spain, and South America, with many achieving certification from ICEC and LWG, two international organizations monitoring the leather industry for its environmental impact. All of our tanneries are committed to minimizing their impact on the environment and using natural resources in a sustainable way. We exclusively use bovine (cow) leather because it is a by-product of the food industry, which offers two important environmental advantages. First, it's an effective use of what would otherwise be dumped as waste; and second, the material itself was not produced for our products, it was produced for food. It is for that reason that we never use exotic skins.
We are occasionally asked if we carry faux or vegan leathers. At this point, we don't. Most synthetics are made of plastic-based materials that have been manufactured from fossil fuels and are far less durable than leather, making them unattractive environmentally. But we continue to watch this industry and when the materials meet our exacting standards, we'll add them to our line.
Use it and enjoy it. Leather will wear, that's part of its beauty.
Once a year or so, or if you get a nick or scuff that bothers you, take your bag to your local shoe repair shop and ask them to touch it up.
