Few fashion brands have as enviable a fashion history as the House of Valentino. From a salon financed by his father, Valentino’s collections went down in fashion history when worn by Elizabeth Taylor, Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn and endorsed by Vogue editor Diana Vreeland and art icon Andy Warhol. Dedicated to artistry and bold innovation, designer Mario Valentino took the skills he learned from a family steeped in the Italian leather tradition and elevated them to an art form. Today, the luxury fashion brand continues his commitment to the finest Italian leather craftsmanship and cutting-edge design through gorgeous handbags and footwear.

Valentino handbags are made using the same traditional, hands-on process that Mario Valentino pioneered during the twentieth century. The journey starts in Santa Croce, Italy, where each piece of leather is meticulously selected for quality, cleaned, and treated to create the signature finishes and textures that signify a Valentino Bag. The precisely treated leather is then passed on to one of 150 artisans who hand-cut and stitch the leather to create each bag from start to finish. Each artisan is specialized in constructing just one or two styles, that they perfectly execute each season. Check out some of the brand’s most sought after handbags.
