All Anthony Luciano bags are made one by one, entirely by hand in a true workshop - unique in today's world where scale and efficiency are prized over quality, even at the high end.  With such a specialized manufacturing process, Anthony is able to create a bag that is truly just for you.

Very often, our clients are seeking a bag for weddings and other special occasions that will coordinate with an already purchased gown, shoes or both. Using swatches or the existing pieces, we work closely with each client to capture the color and design sensibility desired, while accurately reflecting their unique personality.  The final customized bag becomes a meaningful collectible, forever reminding you of an important life moment.

Frequently, clients will use our current collection pieces as a jumping off point for inspiration as they create their own, special bag.  We are able to modify color, material and/or size, often changing shoulder straps, closures, gussets, tassels, outside and inside pockets, among many other details.

Anthony is also able to create new styles to your specification, entirely from scratch.  You know that favorite bag of yours that you have worn for ten years (or more!) and can't bear to part with, despite it being well past its expiration date?  Send it to us.  We will create the pattern and make you a brand new one in the material of your choice, allowing that favorite bag of yours to live on and on.  (It happens more often than you think!)


 

And then there are custom requests that are simply one of a kind, as in this case.  The fine red leather in Carol H's car inspired her to have a snappy red bag to coordinate with it.  That is the beauty of custom - there are no rules.
