Laurent Altieri is an importer of genuine, handcrafted leather bags. We create sophisticated accessories for the modern working woman who wants a bag that fits all occasions.

How Laurent Altieri Started

When Genevieve Laurent started working as a full-time pharmacist, she noticed a void in the fashion industry. She couldn’t find a handbag that is best suited for practicality, affordability, and style. From her experience, quality came at a high price, and she set out to change that. Laurent Altieri came out of a passion for durable fashion and beautiful designs, and the desire to help other working women find high-quality, functional, and stylish bags in the pursuit of their dreams. Genevieve has spent a lot of time in Florence, Italy, where she had the chance to meet local craftsmen while they were making leather handbags.

Genevieve launched her handbag business with Michel Altieri and started importing Italian leather goods. His knowledge of the luxury market, eye for interior design, and taste for high-end fashion perfectly complement Genevieve’s analytic, strategic, and business-driven nature.

From shoulder to smaller crossbody bags to clutches, Laurent Altieri designs’ accessories that transition effortlessly from day to night, season to season, uptown to downtown. The collections are a blend of sophistication, fun, and function for the chic city woman

High-quality Leather Bags

The production of high-quality leather is not only laborious, but it requires exceptional craftsmanship. Every piece tells a unique story. High-quality leather is a work of passion and dedication, beginning with receiving the hide, slicing the levels of skin to get its full grainy feel and tanning. Your leather handbag is more than an accessory. It carries your most intimate pieces and becomes part of your everyday life.

Caring for Your Handbag

To maintain the quality of your handbag, limit the exposure to sunlight as this can cause fading and permanent color damage. Avoid wetting your handbag and never use radiators or air dryers.

Fill your handbag with acid-free tissue paper for durability and maintenance. Never store leather in plastic, it may result in mildew. Place the bag in its dust bag and leave it somewhere dry, away from sunlight. Avoid folding it.

We value quality. We design for the millenials who look for a perfect blend between style and lengevity, to complement the everyday fashion. We not only import handcrafted leather bags, we revive the experience of using authentic leather.
