Handcrafted Leather Bags Made In Mexico and Designed By Native
GLOBAL — When it comes to accessories, undeniably the “it” bag is what drives our wardrobe. From oversized and slouchy to petite and square, who doesn’t crave a bag that gives their look that little oomph, I know I sure do! There’s nothing as essential to an accessory arsenal as a good leather handbag and although it’s easy to fall in love with well-known designer brands, let’s not count out those luxurious bags from emerging designers.
On a recent mission at a Phoenix Fashion Week event, I spotted the Tom Horn Collection, a chic leather handbag brand handcrafted in Mexico from vegetable-dyed leathers in a town called Leon, GTO. Founder Thomas Horn, who was born in Mexico City, created the collection with the rich heritage of Mexico in mind. “Using leather as a medium seemed like the proper way to show my respect for the rich and varied surroundings of my youth.” he explains on tomhorncollection.com. I recently caught up with the brands co-owner Katherine Anne Fisher to get more intel on the company and why their bags should be your next “it” bag.
