Brahmin handbags.How do I love thee.


Mellie Flap Bag


Let me start off by saying that I am SO tardy for the party. Brahmin has been around for years (since 1982) and I'm just now discovering the beauty of their handbags. Simply put, they are the true definition of timeless style. My affinity with Brahmin not only stems from the fact that the handbags look WAY more expensive than what they cost but also the fact that the family-owned company aims to create high-quality yet completely functional handbags. Brahmin accomplishes this by teaming up with skilled craftsmen. That's right. Craftsmen, NOT machines.

The video below explains the history of Brahmin and provides an insider's view of the manufacturing and construction process. From the selection of the Italian leather to the stitching and attachment of hardware, it is evident that after 25+ years, the Brahmin family remains passionate about the brand and focused on delivering great quality to it customers.



With a price range of $200 - $400, these bags are aesthetically "rich" although they're priced far below that of most luxury brands.


Below are some of my favorites:

Maddie Crossbody Bag


What designer do you know with THAT many fabulous bags in one collection?! To check out more, visit Brahmin.com. With so many styles and colors from which to choose, I must warn you that it will be a bit overwhelming. However, I honestly don't think you could go wrong with any one of them.

Be sure to let me know which ones are your favorites. I would love to see if our tastes are similar or completely different.
