Each Latico bag is handmade with love by talented artisans throughout South America and India. Passionate about environmental sustainability and giving back — Latico leather bags are byproducts of the meat and dairy industry that would otherwise go to waste.

After three decades of working with leather, Latico has created heirloom-quality pieces that ripen with age. Each hide is hand-selected and uses a unique blend of natural dyes so the natural character of each leather shines through. Each piece embodies a bohemian aesthetic, breezy attitude, and independent spirit.

Founder and CEO Paul Schreiber started Latico Leathers fresh out of college in 1984. He began selling leather goods out of his trunk in NYC, and soon enough, specialty boutiques in Greenwich Village couldn't keep his merchandise in stock. Bands like the Grateful Dead eventually became fans of his genuine leather bags, and Latico grew into its identity as a leather goods company with a rock and roll twist. In 2020, Latico was the recipient of the prestigious Carlos Falchi Lifetime Achievement Award in Handbag Design.
