PHILINI

"It's not about bags in fact - it's about women. Women and their stories."

Nataly Brunner

READ PHILINI STORIES

Since 2009, Philini has been creating bags that are a natural balance of fine craftsmanship, slow fashion and long-lasting styles. Bags that have been inspired bystories of the wonderful women that brand designer Nataly Brunner meets in life.

THE CREATING PROCESS

PEOPLE & WORK ETHICS

In a world of fast fashion, the Philini team dares to stop and look closely. In no rush, they have a love for the process, details and—most importantly—for people.

Working conditions and work ethics are a priority in all parts of the creative process, from Philini’s main studio in Germany to the atelier in Moldova. 

The bags are designed and developed in Germany and handmade by an excellent team of artisans in Moldova—a country known for its long history as a manufacturer of high-quality, custom leather goods.

HANDMADE & ONE-OF-A-KIND

Philini creates very limited numbers of each bag, in many cases only a single piece or several versions each in aunique colour.

The shapes and details of our bags showcase the high level of investment and attention put into the work. Each bag is meticulously handcrafted by a professional artisan from the first step to the last.

The small team and close collaboration encourage creativity and quality throughout the craftsmanship process.

SUSTAINABLE MATERIALS

The materials used to create Philini bags are sourced in Italy and Germany.

The origin and the quality of the leather are very important to the durability of the bags. Since leather is still one of the best natural materials, the goal is to look very carefully at its origin.

All Philini handbags are protected internally with a soft, washable lining that is also sourced in Italy.

ANASTASIA

“My experience with PHILINI was, for me, a new discovery in every sense, beginning with travelling through various places and ending with the discovery of a new self in the looks created for the shoot. We travelled a lot, got a chance to know each other better, talked, laughed, worked and made jokes. It is always a huge pleasure to work with creative people that are in love with what they do. And the bags—the bags are a special story. They create the atmosphere. In each of them is invested a lot of soul; each detail is carefully thought over and they are robust and nice to touch. We...noticed how people were turning around and were admiring not just the simple cute girls, but the stylish women who knew their own value.“ Anastasia Zeleniuk

“...Thousands of miles from Germany, I remember with a big smile and very warm feelings the work I did with Philini. I believe something very important has changed in me after working with the whole team. One evening, when we were returning from the photoshoot in Austria, we were driving near the mountains. It was very dark and suddenly there began a very intensive rain with thunder... I realized that moment would remain forever in my memory...I was feeling myself a woman, one that is full of life and very strong, one that could go through any obstacles. I was feeling that I madly fell in love with the people with whom I was in the car. I understood that I was surrounded by people that were extremely beautiful and, first of all, beautiful with their thoughts and ideas. It was a magic time, magic work and magic bags... every time I held one in my hand, something inside me was changing…” Yana Baycheva

"I was absolutely happy and overwhelmed with emotions while working with PHILINI. I felt incredibly comfortable all week...The PHILINI bags changed my view of the image of a woman in the modern world. Restraint, elegance, quality—all this creates an intense feeling while wearing these bags. Every bag is a story that we lived... It was an unforgettable experience for me. I feel very proud to have worked with this brand." Polina Cherdivara
