It should be of impeccable quality, elegant and of great style, but also versatile enough to keep up with the busy lifestyles of confident and successful women throughout their whole day.

Handbag outside – office inside: multiple padded pockets, zip up compartments for privacy, easy access to everyday needs, keychain, phone case and a small detachable pochette for lunch or dinner meetings.

Great focus has been set since the beginning on excellent leather quality (a prerequisite for Sonja Schweizer belonging to a family with tannery tradition in the fifth generation), as well as on the production. Only very few of the best manufactures in Italy are able to entirely produce and cope with the complexity of the bags, assembled of up to 300 single pieces per bag.
