Maria Castelli is an emerging brand founded by a mother-daughter team of architects in New York City. Their latest collection of luxury leather handbags was designed with the urban dweller in mind, and ranges from chic clutches and minimalist backpacks to versatile totes.
Handcrafted in New York, the pieces combine timeless yet distinctive silhouettes with high-quality materials, such as Italian shrunken leather, spotted calf hair and Merino lambskin.
Grounded in their architectural training, the Maria Castelli design approach reflects the Bauhaus principle of “form follows function and the character of the materials used.”
Maria Castelli pairs its signature leather—a rich, shrunken and hand-glossed leather from Italy—with other specialty leathers and furs from the best tanneries in the world located in Spain, Turkey and Ethiopia.
