The Birth of
A new brand
Alicia Dakteris' creations were born out of the need to have a practical handbag solution for international travels as well as something nice for stepping out to dinner – a combination handbag for both business and pleasure. Her experience as an Art Director and Graphic Designer propelled her to jump into her first design.
Made for the modern woman looking for the highest quality product at the best price, Alicia’s handbags are handcrafted locally in Los Angeles, with top-quality, Italian leather and hardware.
“As designer, I thought this would be great fun… selecting the finest leather in wonderful colors and textures; then, finding the perfect premium hardware to match. Sorting through hundreds of clasps, chains and zippers is always my favorite part! My first handbag was The Sack, a large bag with interchangeable straps that could carry a 15" computer, my wallet and any last minute purchases before boarding a plane.”
“I believe that practicality and quality go hand in hand with a well-handcrafted product. All of my purses are manufactured in Los Angeles so I can personally ensure the highest quality in each and every one of them.”
