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."

- ElisabethVerified BuyerI recommend this productAge Range 45 - 54Standouts Durable, Buttery Soft Leather, Lightweight, Stylish, Thoughtful DesignRated 5 starsExcellent medium-sized North South tote
This tote just arrived and I can already tell that it will be one of the all-time greats (and I own other Latico bags that I love for various reasons). This has everything because it is incredibly well made with perfect-length straps, interior lining and top zipper, outside pockets for phone, etc. as well as inside organization. It is absolutely perfect for both work and weekends. There are so many colors, too. I chose the Poppy because I wanted to try something outside of black, blue, brown and white. Perhaps more orangey red than anticipated, but still fantastic. Very excited to start using it regularly.Was this helpful?

I saw this at a boutique and had to have it! I just love the feel of the leather and the fact that it has wonderful organizational features… pockets galore! It’s not too big but not too small either. I am not a very big person so finding a tote that is the right size is a bit of a challenge. (I am 5’3”) I bought the cognac color. I just ordered a wallet as well but honestly, you don’t even need a wallet because of the features of this purse.Was this helpful?
