Family Owned & Operated Since 1984
Redefining Everyday Essentials
Discover our collection of beautifully- designed leather essentials. Each piece embodies a bohemian aesthetic, breezy attitude, and independent spirit.
After three decades of working with leather, we've created heirloom-quality pieces that ripen with age. We hand-select each hide and use a unique blend of natural dyes so the natural character of each leather shines through.
Each Latico bag is handmade with love by talented artisans throughout South America and India. We're passionate about environmental sustainability and giving back — our leathers are byproducts of the meat and dairy industry that would otherwise go to waste.
Additionally, we donate 10 meals to Feeding America for every purchase made on our website. Thanks to our loyal customers, we've been able to donate 100,000 meals and counting to this incredible organization.

About Our Founders
Founder and CEO Paul Schreiber started Latico Leathers fresh out of college in 1984. He began selling leather goods out of his trunk in NYC, and soon enough, specialty boutiques in Greenwich Village couldn't keep his merchandise in stock. Bands like the Grateful Dead eventually became fans of his genuine leather bags, and Latico grew into its identity as a leather goods company with a rock and roll twist.
Paul met his wife Lainie — an uptown girl with a New York fashion background — and the two launched a celebrated women’s line. The unique artisan linings, unexpected leather treatments, and extensive interior organization created during that time would come to define Latico’s signature style.
Today, our customers refer to us as their “one-stop shop” for quality leather goods. In fact, over 80% of our business comes from repeat customers. We can’t thank you enough for your ongoing support!
"Just as we've demonstrated our success in designing and manufacturing quality investment pieces, we've also achieved a high level of customer satisfaction by listening and responding to our loyal customers."

- ChristaTXI recommend this productAge Range 35 - 44Standouts Buttery Soft LeatherRated 4 out of 5 starsI like it, but...
I do really like the soft, broken in leather of this backpack. However there is one major flaw that drives me insane. Since it is convertible to a tote (which I would never use), the straps do not stay put when being worn like a backpack. They are ran through a strip of leather so the straps are never even. If you take off one strap to get something out, the entire back slides down that one strap. The you have to wiggle, bounce, struggle and contort your body to get it back even. EVERY TIME. I rigged up the straps to do a double loop through the strip so it kinda stays put. Lovely leather, nice quality. But I would not buy this again.

In my opinion, this is the absolute best design for a convertible tote/backpack. Beautiful and well-made, of exceptional quality!

I bought this bag for my daughter and was blown away by its quality, both in terms of workmanship and the leather used. The item arrived promptly, as it was shipped internationally without incident and required a signature upon receipt, which I appreciate as a customer.
