A COMPLETELY ETHICAL AND SUSTAINABLE APPROACH TO THE FUTURE OF HANDBAGS AND ACCESSORIES

MODHER’s mission is to create a thoughtful experience from the time each piece is handmade by Italian craftsmen, to its journey to the consumer, all the way to the end of its life.

In its mission to keep a small carbon footprint, MODHER (pronounced ‘Mod-her’ as a marriage of modern and leather) leaves no stone unturned.
Firstly, it uses Italian leather whose raw material comes exclusively from the food, which means no animal is killed for its skin, and what would otherwise be discarded is transformed into a long-lasting luxury piece that can be loved and carried forever.

Our Story

Is Leather Modern?

Based in California and founded in 2018 by native Sicilian Gianna Caravello, MODHER is an independent leather handbag and accessory brand for women.

Born from the single question “IS LEATHER MODERN?”, Caravello set out to design chic and sustainable leather bags that marry aesthetic elegance with eco and social sustainability, allowing the legacy of luxury Italian leather to coexist with modern ethical practices.

After seeing so many synthetic materials in the fashion industry, we decided to put our effort into designing with a natural leather, plastic-free experience.

We traveled across Italy to find ethical suppliers who are fully committed to provide safe and healthy work environment for their workers and to apply all the latest technologies in order to protect and preserve our ecosystem.
