byINABE's first collection launched in 2017 with a set of 5 leather bags designed and hand crafted in Toronto, Canada. They are easy go-to everyday bags that will last through wear and tear and look great with every outfit. Attention to detail, textures, thoughtful designs and quality leather make up our bags. Our next collection, coming out spring summer 2018, focuses on functional bags that make your life easier. Coming soon!
The designs are feminine, modern and organic. Soft lines combined with the natural textures of the leather encompass many of the bags we make. Designer Note: I am self-taught in leather-crafting and love learning about new and better techniques everyday. The goal is to create bags that are not only fashionable and functional but also long lasting and ethically made.
The leather is all locally sourced and monitored for quality and weight. It is important to note however that some scars and marks are normal and reflect the lives and stories of the animals it came from. We also do everything we can to use every part of our leather so that none of it goes to waste.
BYINABE is ultimately a self-reflection and journey. BE as in 'to be' or 'I am' and INA meaning inner. To leave the weight and burden behind and live a happier and healthier life. Key words for BYINABE include creativity, minimalism, strength, and lifestyle. Designer note: I personally like smaller bags but I love a large bag with compartments that allow me to organize and easily find whatever I need.
