Amilu Independent British Handbag Brand

OUR STORY

Independent British brand Amilu present a unique collection of design-led handbags, designed in the Peak District by an all-female team and hand-crafted from the finest materials in Italy. Choose from an array of luxury handbags, from the day-to-day to the special occasion. Punctuate an outfit with an effortless hands-free Crossbody bag, choose a go-everywhere Shoulder Bag or elevate the every day with a luxe grab-bag Tote.

Amilu started life in 2005 as pop-up shop Mimu, with founder Libba travelling the country with her passionately curated range of handbags. Over the years and via conversations with literally thousands of women, Libba’s insider knowledge grew, setting the pace for Amilu’s own handbag collection.

Working with the same small family businesses in Tuscany, Amilu designs are brought to life in the latest leather finishes and incorporate defining details; driven by Libba’s knowledge of what women want, and need in a handbag. 

OUR MISSION IS TO MAKE BEAUTIFUL,

AFFORDABLE HANDBAGS IN LUXURIOUS LEATHER.

The Amilu Aesthetic

Expect a strong aesthetic; classic, yet with a contemporary edge, tactile leather, robust hardware and innovate touches such as light colour linings so you can see inside, all round zips for ease of access and wherever possible, base protection.
