Our design and craftsmanship

Posted on



At Manofatto we take pride in our British designed Italian leather bags for two reasons. The first is that they’re hand crafted and the second is our uniquely innovative designing technique. The bags are a beautiful handcraft accessory made from full grain leather. Our design technique involves branching modern interior design with fashion design. The result is fashion forward and multifunctional handbags. Notice that the “Linea” bag collection can be styled two ways. Use the long side strap to make it a shoulder bag, Or stick your hand down the front strap to make it an envelope clutch.




Manofatto means handwork, so we take that very seriously here. Each handcrafted, artisan piece is produced in limited quantities to ensure high quality and a sense of exclusivity. We collaborate with British designers so that every design aspect is considered and deliberate, for stylish products that are as functional as they are fashionable. Whether you are after something bright and beautiful, or muted and classy, there is sure to be an item that will slip seamlessly into your life.




Our micro-manufacturing process allows us to spend more time considering quality rather than quantity. We use high-grade, full-grain Italian leather, and even the finishings are carefully selected to add to the feeling of extravagance, with YKK zippers and Japanese snap buttons. Every part of the production process takes place in our Hong Kong workshop, so that we can carefully monitor each stage for the best final result. Our craftsman, Novi, works alongside our designer, Philippa T, and our co-founder Luke, to create a clear, precise brief with no room for error.

With many items made-to-order, turnaround is usually around 15 days, which gives plenty of time for the client to get excited about their up-coming delivery. The unique nature of the products is only exacerbated by the use of natural leather, which often features unusual fine markings that make each bag a one-of-a-kind purchase. Label lovers will appreciate that each item is branded with the Manofatto name, as a symbol of pure designer quality.

Our customers look for premium quality products, and individuality and fashion are important to them. They are likely to appreciate an organised life, understanding the need for accessories that both look good and fulfil a function. Cross-body bags that work hard and last a lifetime are top of their shopping list, with matching items such as coin pouches, card holders and key holders a delightful additional purchase.

There is something quite special about an item that has been lovingly crafted from start to finish by someone with a passion for creating quality leather items. It gives every piece a quirky edge, and lets the end user know that their accessory has come from a caring, personal background.

With designs starting at HK$299 (≈US$38), our exquisite products will be sure to impress. We ship internationally, and delivery is free for orders over HK$1,500. Take a look at our collections and experience the superior for yourself.
