About The Brand

Are Studio specializes in leather bags that are minimal and timeless. Bag designs serve as a clean slate for each person to make their mark and personalize the bag they carry, depending on the everyday staples they pack.

The company was established in 2012 by Cecilia Bordarampé, a Los Angeles based designer. The Are Studio name was inspired by the plural and present tense form of the verb to “be.” Its existential implication relates to the objects we choose to adorn and surround ourselves with daily.

Are Studio bags are made by hand in Los Angeles, CA. Materials and supplies are sourced from local family owned manufacturers and businesses in Los Angeles. An eye toward minimal waste is key in the production of Are Studio goods. Every leather hide is unique with slight imperfections, making each bag a one of a kind.
