August Handbags

Last week in New York City, I traveled from Metro to Uber and from meeting to meeting with my beautiful new August tote. The new Fall collection has deep merlot colors like mine and some great accent patterns like spotted haircalf and crocodile texture. Check out the full August collection online to see what I mean!

What I love about August is the intentionality of the company in every aspect. They are socially-conscious, sustainable, quality-driven and focused on the joy of travel.  August is based in LA (whoop!) and locally sources and manufactures all of their leather goods. The bags are made with the traveler in mind – sturdy and dependable with clean lines and minimal design, just how I like it. The company is also committed to giving back globally and has begun by investing in education in Los Angeles. For every bag sold, a backpack is donated to child in need in LA.

It’s a complete story.  To top it off, the owner and creators are a married couple that embody their mission. They travel, work hard and help where they can.  So inspired by this company and can’t wait to grow my collection as I plan to travel as much as possible over the next couple of years.
