I’m not an expert on bags or luxury goods. I’m sure you’ve noticed via Flickr or Instagram that I own only a few good bags which I hardly rotate. About “it” bags, I just don’t have enough disposable income to spend on big ticket items. Plus, I wear my bags to death. So I can’t be toting around anything too precious. Ever since I had a steady income, I was always committed to more practical and lasting heirlooms like insurance payments, retirement packages, and real estate. Haha. Boring stuff.
But I do love a good bag. Especially those that are well structured, of good leather, and are unrecognizable. Enter Rabeanco, a name that sounds more like a trade name than a luxury brand. Rabeanco is actually an international luxury bag line established in 2004, using the finest quality hides and skins. “Rabeanco has East-meets-West philosophy that combines artisanal leather-craft traditions of Milan with the stark simplicity and innovative silhouettes of Hong Kong.”
The wonderful thing about Rabeanco is you get urban, current designs and great quality leather minus the price tag of a “designer” bag. So from my end, there would be less guilt if I bought a few in different colours. Check out what they have at the moment…
Rabeanco’s most popular bag. This bag has it all – versatility, style, quality, friendly price. The bag can be carried open like a tote. It can be locked with that dangle. And it can be further drawn in with a hook on the opposite seams. This is a good bag.
I am starting to obsess over the Tiara backpack. It has double-faced smooth leather, drawstring closure, zip closure on both sides and adjustable shoulder straps. I’m hoping they have the midnight blue colour. How do you feel about backpacks? I haven’t used one since the early 90s. But I know this would be great for traveling.
