Why you’re going to love MANU Atelier

Fashion’s has a new favourite it bag, and we’ve fallen hard.

Introducing MANU Atelier, the brand that’s charming the fashion elite with their multi-coloured range of luxury handbags, as compact as they are chic. Offering flawless functionality and a high-end look – without the high-end price tag – these bags have injected some much-needed novelty into the accessories landscape. With an aesthetic as unique as their story of origin, prepare to be hooked.

Made in Turkey, MANU Atelier is the brainchild of Beste and Merve Manastir, the daughters of one of the most celebrated leather handcraftsmen in Istanbul. Driven to continue their artisan father’s approach, the duo has remained loyal to traditional techniques, combining the use of rustic, premium leather with expert handcraftsmanship.

It’s this attention to detail that makes each MANU handbag so unique. From an 18th century building in the heart of Beyoğlu, Istanbul, each MANU piece is lovingly hand-made and hand-stitched, resulting in leather bags that are intended not only to be used, but admired. For the Manastir sisters and their father – who leads MANU’s team of artisans – it’s about producing goods that will make them proud for decades to come, not just for one season.

From the label’s statement Pristine Camera Bag, to their quirky suede Mini Fernweh Backpacks, get set to stock up on one our favourites from the MANU collection.
