We are a designer-owned brand based in Los Angeles, CA. The original brand concept was created by Luis Castaner and Steven Brian.  Our intent is to create beautiful leather bags for every day use that meet the functional needs of commuters and business professionals on the go. Our backpacks are designed  to add color, style and an element of fun to a traditionally dull laptop bags market. Our recent re-launch has expanded our product line to include business totes and fun, stylish crossbody bags for everyday wear.


Our products are handmade in Los Angeles and New York by experienced local artisans. Our materials include Premium Italian leather, natural suede lining and other internationally sourced materials. As a small business, designer-owned brand, we only carry a small amount of inventory and offer most of our styles as Made to Order. By selling direct to consumer, Luis Steven aims to produce designer quality products at reasonable prices.

Our backpacks and business totes are designed to carry your everyday work equipment, including laptops and tablets. We also provide the option of pairing your work bag with a matching crossbody bag to carry your personal essentials, thereby dividing the weight and function into separate, coordinated bags.

Finally, his experience in the business world has provided an awareness of the functionality professionals need.
