Bogardus Handbags are 100% made in the U.S.A, Ethical, Zero Waste, and Eco Friendly


Bogardus strives to be on the forefront of fashion and sustainability. The fish leather used is environmentally friendly in that it is a bi-product of the fishing industry; so, our bags utilize raw materials that would not otherwise be used. Our production process also makes use of renewable hydro and geothermal energy. 

We our proud that each Bogardus handbag is constructed with a zero waste policy. We hand punch our unused skins to create exotic leather sequences for our Bogie Collection of couture evening bags. 


Style and Quality

Bogardus utilizes the highest quality exotic skins, which are imported from countries including Iceland, Thailand, and throughout South America, and our leathers are imported from Italy and Germany. All of our handbags are individually handcrafted with the strictest attention to detail. 

Our designs are executed by crafts people who excel in their individual specialties, whether it be metal working, laser-cutting, handling exotics, or digital printing. Handbags may vary in color due to natural dyes and individual construction. Our team is dedicated to creating the highest quality product for today's modern woman, with the wish that our consumers will live and use our handbags day to day. Each handbag will age beautifully alongside it's owner.
