Redefining everyday essentials

Discover our collection of beautifully designed everyday leather essentials that embrace a bohemian aesthetic, breezy attitude, and independent spirit

What sets us apart

We use the finest materials and aim to design essential handmade leather goods at an accessible price point. We create timeless collections that only ripen with age. Family-run since 1984, we lovingly hand-make each piece using the best methods, leathers, and materials we know. all designs are 100% leather and acquire a rich, unique patina with age.

The embodiment of better

Each piece is made with integrity and kindness from the highest-quality materials, and created by the best artisans throughout South America, Asia, and the United States. One of our primary concerns for our supply chain is environmental sustainability. Because of this, our leather is sourced as a byproduct of the meat and diary industry that would otherwise go to waste.

About our founders

Fresh out of college, Paul began selling leather goods out of his car trunk store-to-store in NYC. His casual, down-to-earth ways translated into bags that reflected the same qualities- mellow, leather basics with laid-back comfort and high quality. Specialty boutiques in Greenwich Village couldn't keep his merchandise in stock and soon the ever-famous rock group, The Grateful Dead and crew became fans of his naked-leather bags. As this was Latico's first lucky charm, it invited many other musicians to seek out our bags. Paul's fledgling leather company with a rock & roll twist was on its way to grow further in the leather basics industry.

and born again...

So the story goes, downtown boy meets uptown girl and ... beautiful bags were born. With a New York Fashion background and an eye for European trends, Lainie launched Latico 's celebrated seasonal women’s fashion trends & colors. Attention to details such as unique artisan linings, unexpected leather treatments (yes, even Italian retro-upholstery leather) and extensive interior organization have become Latico signature features that turn heads from coast to coast.  Many of our customers refer to us as a "one-stop" bag source as our diverse collections have wide audience appeal.
