A Vachetta leather handbag is the ultimate investment piece; it's the only kind of leather that naturally darkens with use to develop a deep honey "patina," becoming more valuable over time.

FRANCESCO & ELENA FILOMENI - Sant’Elpidio a Mare, Marche
Handwoven leather purses, shoes and even furniture have been coming out of the Filomeni family's workshop in Italy's Le Marche region since 1982, when part-owner Francesco Filomeni’s parents first founded the company. Meticulously hand woven from 150-200 meters of leather string, each satchel has a one-of-a-kind beauty that literally stops admirers on the street, which is a true testament to the skill, patience and quality with which the Filomeni's bags are made.
- customer service
Customer service was a delight, and the bag is gorgeous with beautiful supple leather.
Roomy tote, high quality construction.
The bag arrived perfectly on time and is beautifully made. Fits my 13" laptop with lots of room to spare. Handle length is great. Care instructions weren't included, so definitely do your research on how to care for this type of leather. I can't wait to watch it age.
A fabulous bag
I was so excited to receive this bag and it does disappoint! It is beautifully made and looks fabulous. I know I will be carrying it for years to come.
Nice bag but returning
When the bag arrived, I saw that it was just not as refined as I was hoping. I will be very happy for a speedy refund. Thank you, though, for sending it to me and I’m so sorry it didn’t work out. Best, Glee White
I love this bag. I receive a ton of compliments on it. Great quality. I LOVE IT! And, I will be ordering other colors
I absolutely adore this woven bag❤️ It is soft and roomy and so well made
Lovely quality, cool and practical
I have used my bag non-stop since I got it, both for work, city life, vacation and travel. It’s very practical with a lot of space, including two big pockets. It easily fits a laptop and more for work. It is solid and looks very cool and beautiful. When I got it, the colour was quite light, but just after a couple of weeks it started to get the beautiful tanned colour. A true classic, and for the solid and well done handicraft I also think it is really good value for money.
Love my bag
Due to a problem with back orders and expected delays with delivery, I was encouraged not to have my bag monogrammed. However, when my bag was delivered within the timeframe promised it was monogrammed...with someone else’s initials! Then began a return and exchange process that was so lengthy I would have done better time wise to have ordered my own bag monogrammed in the beginning. That said, my bag is pretty and durable.
When you order a bag, you see in pictures and read the narrative but you really don’t know how soft and beautifully colored it will be. Then it arrives, so prettily wrapped and you know how special it is and you just want to admire it a while. Such wonderful craftsmanship. This bag will serve for many years.
I adore my vachetta.
I couldn’t wait to get this bag, I love vachetta leather and this bag is exactly what I wanted. I have some feedback on quality. Within the first day of the bag the leather that binds the cords of the handle came loose, and since then three of them are loose and the cords of the handle are exposed. I would encourage the artisans to reinforce this area of the bag. Other than that I find this bag to be lovely❤️
