OUR BRAND PHILOSOPHY

Exceptional craftsmanship, a clean and simple aesthetic and our functional light-weight leather, are the hallmarks of an Alexandra de Curtis handbag.

 

craftsmanship

Our bags are meticulously handcrafted in Rome by a team of skilled artisans who have been working with leather since 1959. The whole process is 100% Made in Italy, from the initial prototype to the materials we use, to the end production.

Wearing an Alexandra de Curtis bag means not only owning a unique accessory, but also keeping alive an ancient craft that still survives in Italy today.

light-weight leather

Our signature smooth calfskin leather with bonded suede lining is light-weight and keeps its shape over time, making it very resistant and practical; the perfect companion for a busy lifestyle. 

Alexandra visits the most important leather tradeshows in Europe every season and carefully hand picks the highest quality materials for her designs. 

effortless style

Alexandra's designs embody an understated and simple elegance that is luxurious and effortlessly chic. 

Inspired by the impeccable style of Italy’s best-dressed women and modern style icons such as Olivia Palermo, Alexandra's handbags are sophisticated and practical styles designed for the busy, modern woman.

 

"Whenever I design a new style I try to create something that will work beautifully, season after season." - Alexandra

 

Behind the Scenes

The Making of the Midi Loren Tote

Wearing an Alexandra de Curtis bag means not only owning a unique accessory, but also keeping alive a fascinating, ancient craft that still survives in Italy today. The workmanship is made up of slow, careful, encoded gestures that are at the heart of this typically Italian artisanal expertise.

I hope you enjoy watching this video of the making of our Midi Loren Tote in our workshop in Rome. If you like seeing how things are made, then I think you'll love it!


Our Spring Photoshoot in Rome

Take a stroll with us along the River Tiber, visit the Colosseum and enjoy the beautiful view from the Giannicolo Hill in Rome in our behind the scenes video of our Spring photo shoot.

I love shooting in the Eternal City, we always come across some hidden gems tucked away behind large wooden doors, spectacular rooftop views or around the corner from a cobblestoned street.
