At AphroAdonis, we have set out to completely change the meaning of luxury by combining high-quality leather bags with the element of personalization. Offering a collection of customized leather goods made of the finest chrome-free leather, we allow you to customize every detail of your bag from colors, pockets, and straps to the most subtle details like the type of zipper and the lining – a level of customization not offered by other brands on the market.

We cater to your personal style — making you the creator. With our easy-to-use online tool, you design the bag that will perfectly suit your lifestyle and our skilled craftsmen will transform our refined, elegant leather into your own one-of-a-kind masterpiece.

See how you customize the bags:

 Online Design Tool

Our innovative online design tool is the first of its kind that allows you to customize every aspect of your bag from the color of the lining to the kind of buckle and placement of pockets.

Have you ever been searching for the right bag for a night out but constantly find either the right bag with the wrong strap or one with the right strap but in the wrong color? The limitless customization options and design power of the AphroAdonis online design tool will save you countless hours of frustration and stress.

Designing your own bag is easy!

Chrome-free leather

As leaders in the environmentally conscious fashion movement, we are part of the first 5% of brands to produce a collection made from 100% chrome-free leather. Our aldehyde with glutaraldehyde tanning process is chrome free in our all new non-allergenic premium leather range. This means that we use 85% of less water used to create our bags compared to typical tanning processes.

At AphroAdonis, we believe that manufacturing our leather goods in an eco-friendly and sustainable way is the key to investing in the future. We are proud to create completely biodegradable products without using toxic or harmful chemicals to ensure you and your family’s safety when you handle or wear against your skin.

No Middleman = Luxury Quality For Less 

By cutting out the middleman, AphroAdonis are able to offer their luxury leather goods at truly affordable prices, and help the customer get exactly the kind of product they want to perfectly suit their style, mood, and personality.

This allows us to sell our products for 1/4 of what an actual bag would be from another luxury brand.

High-quality metal fittings and zippers

We use only the finest in metal fittings. All of our buckle and hooks are made from top quality metals. We are also proud to be one of the few brands to incorporate the most recent innovation in zippers, top quality YKK, into all of our designs. This variant is made with teeth that were each individually polished with rounded edges to prevent the ever too common zipper cuts of its predecessor.

Personalization

Our state of the art laser printing technology allows us to give a personal touch to our leather products. This technology allows us to print names of variable lengths in various font style and size.

 

AphroAdonis is dedicated to preserving the precious, traditional art of leather bag making. To achieve the most coveted, sought out material, we have a partnership with a leather tannery based in Kolkata, a city that has a long and rich history in leather making dating back to ancient times. To produce our luxury leather goods, we use a blend of traditional techniques as well as the most innovative and effective methods of leather tanning. We are passionate about our leather and we see to it that the tanning process takes place under the mastery of experienced artisan craftsmen with the highest standards of quality.

 

Check out our reward groups then back our campaign according to the group! We'll ask you exactly which bag or wallet you would like after the campaign. Keep in mind we are offering FREE SHIPPING WORLDWIDE on all of our rewards.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

AphroAdonis symbolizes elegance and sophistication. It's the perfect balance of luxury and affordability. We want our products to be an expression of your own personal style to enhance your look without costing you a fortune. We believe everyone has the right to look their best and feel special — that's why we've eliminated the middleman and ship directly to keep our costs low and pass that savings onto you.

Risks and challenges

We've been developing and testing our products for the past three years to ensure that these will stand the test of time. We chose to work with only the most skilled artisans, who use the highest quality materials to make each bag meticulously by hand. Our bags are built to last and undergo rigorous quality checks to give you a product that will withstand the test of time.

While there is no way to avoid risk 100%, this is not new to us. We have years of experience with product development and have incorporated ways to avoid delays for delivery if any unforeseen circumstances should arise. If despite our planning something should stall delivery, it is our promise to be transparent and keep our backers informed with updates every step of the way.

International backers please take note: If you live outside of the US, you will be responsible for any applicable duty/VAT charges.

You should also be aware that some countries are known for being very slow with customs. If you live in one of these countries you've probably dealt with this before. Unfortunately, this is completely out of our hands if there was a way to get our packages through faster, believe us we would. As of yet, there is no magic formula to speed up the process.
