Are Studio specializes in leather bags that are minimal and timeless. Bag designs serve as a clean slate for each person to make their mark and personalize the bag they carry, depending on the everyday staples they pack. Each surface impression serves as a record of life experiences and reflects the inadvertent patterns that make each person unique.
The company was established in 2012 by Cecilia Bordarampé, a Los Angeles based designer. Are Studio bags are made by hand in Los Angeles, CA. All materials and supplies are sourced from local family owned manufacturers and businesses in Los Angeles. An eye toward minimal waste is key in the production of Are Studio goods. Every leather hide is unique with slight imperfections, making each bag a one of a kind.
