40 Harrison is an American leather company that makes high quality leather bags at an affordable price using genuine Italian leather and hardware. Our factory produces bags for several luxury fashion houses. We employ skilled craftsmen who have decades of experience working with leather. 40 Harrison bags are designed in New York City, made of Italian leather and constructed by experienced craftsmen in Portugal.
40 Harrison was born from an idea we had when we were looking for a leather weekend bag to take on a short vacation. After visiting dozens of stores and searching online, we realized that designer bags were overpriced while the more affordable alternatives did not live up to our expectations quality-wise.
After traveling through Europe, we found a great group of highly skilled leather artisans with decades of experience to help bring our bags to life.
We believe that we should make products that are not only affordable luxury but also bags we want to use. From the size of the pockets on our bags to the selection of the perfect leather, we make sure that each detail is carefully considered when creating each bag. We take our bags seriously so our customers can be sure to enjoy them as much as we do.
We have been in business since April of 2015. Our team includes Anna Chang, who has a background in advertising and a love for fashion and beauty and Patrick Uwihoreye who is currently learning Portuguese in order to improve communication with our leather makers. Patrick is a dual citizen of Belgium and Rwanda and comes from a business background. Anna and Patrick met while living in New York City and the name 40 Harrison came from the address of the apartment where they met and were roommates.
