THE VERDI HANDBAG


“VERDI handbags are unique, timeless Colombian heirlooms meant to transcend trends and be passed on throughout generations.”


By reinventing Colombia’s ethnical mochilas into modern bucket bags, unique wristlets, and other sophisticated silhouettes, VERDI preserves the original mochila shape and name but re-thinks its traditional technique and materials. At our workshop, we use plantain fiber, organic silk, fishing line, leather, and silver-plated metals to craft bags that, taking up to 10 days to be knitted by hand or hand-woven on looms, are testaments to quality and luxury.
