Issara was born from a search for a minimalist, high-quality leather bag that wouldn’t break the bank — something they couldn’t find in the marketplace. Founded on the belief that products should be well-made, fairly priced, and ethically manufactured, Issara is the antithesis of fast fashion, avoiding mass-production in favor of a curated, personalized collection that’s crafted on demand. Beginning with the founder’s back-of-napkin sketches, their premium leather goods are handcrafted in two workshops in Central Java and Eastern India. Each creation is hand-drafted, cut, sewn, and burnished in these workshops by artisans with decades of experience.
