Think about the most popular brands that have withstood the test of time. Who comes to mind initially? Valentino. Chanel. Missoni. They have evolved, broken down, rebuilt and come out stronger than ever, whilst still maintaining their unique design eye. However, a common denominator in all of these brands is that they are designed and housed outside of the United States.
It’s very rare that we find a brand rise with the elegance, grace and legacy that is brought by the above household names. It’s even rarer that we find that brand housed in the United States. Jamah Handbags may be the first in a long while to break into this coveted group. Designed and constructed in Downtown Los Angeles, these bags were created to be as unique and special as the women who carry them. An understated statement, using only the highest quality textiles and hardware.
Cheers to the first, and perhaps only, luxury design house emerging from DTLA. A definite brand to watch.
