Handmade leather bags. Made in USA.

Once Upon A Time...

My love of design was nurtured while under the tutelage of my older brother Kurt, a very talented leather worker. With his encouragement and guidance, I began making pieces of my own, and it soon became my passion – I began to study the traditional leather making processes of old world artisans and applied them to my work.

Influenced by this style and my European heritage, I began to seek out beautiful and unique materials for my purses and handbags. I found that some of the most exquisite qualities of leather comes from years of use, and fell in love with the art of finding USA-sourced tanneries and leathers.

Unique. Just Like You.

Unlike the cookie-cutter, machine made products in "most retails stores", Margaret Vera Bags are authentic and handcrafted in the tradition of old world artisans. Each one is a unique, one-of-a-kind, fashion accessory that makes a statement of individual style.

Handcrafted With Love

Today, Margaret Vera offers an ever changing line of handmade accessories. With our alluring blend of rugged and soft leathers, variety of muted and bright colors, and quality craftsmanship, discriminating customers from around the world choose MV products with confidence.

An English Girl At Heart...

Born in Oxford, England, I have a natural affinity for the beauty of the country and open spaces. When I decided to take the plunge and start MV, I wanted to grow the company leaving the smallest footprint possible. All of our products are made from natural leather; a resourceful bi-product which minimizes the environmental impact.

And A Heart For Giving Back

We believe in the philosophy of community. That we are all connected and have a responsibility to help make the world a better place. Margaret Vera supports the ALS. An amazing organization committed to finding a cure for Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis - Lou Gerhig's Disease. Every purchase you make, helps in the battle to irradicate ALS by contributing to this worthy human cause.
