Los Angeles-based Are Studio was established in 2012 by Art Institute of Chicago graduate Cecilia Bordarampé. The name Are was inspired by the plural and present tense of the verb "to be" as a reminder of the choices we make and the objects we adorn ourselves with daily. The handmade collection of locally-sourced leather bags are sustainably created by family owned businesses. Specializing in minimalist, distinct and timeless leather goods and apparel, the pared-back designs provide a clean slate for the wearer to personalize and absorb them as their own.
