Combining classic styles with modern attitude, our bags are distinctively characterful celebrations of life. Every Aurora London handbag and accessory is made from the finest grade Spanish and Italian leather. We set our standards high and every bags must reach up to it.
Made in Spain
The Spanish region of Ubrique, where our bags are manufactured, have been crafting since the 19th century. Here, we work closely with a generations-old family-run atelier which uses both local and Italian leathers to fashion handsome pieces following our own proprietary designs.
Over the past seven years we have developed a close working relationship with our family run atelier in Spain where our designs become reality. It’s a valuable collaboration which shapes the outcome of each bag.
Our bags classic navy lining and complex features including internal credit card holders, large organiser zipped pockets, and detachable key fobs, are beautifully presented in individual dust bags.
Our skilful factory artisans pay acute attention to detail when constructing the bags with the fewest seams with single line stitching, and sourcing sleek, modern metalware to compliment the local leathers and hides from Italy.
'The signature of a great bag is written in the quality of the materials.’
Mock Croc Leather
We don’t skimp on leather quality when designing bags with a mock croc effect. This deep embossment of the cowhide raises the surface to create a two-tone colour effect with a firm feel and shiny texture. Scales look luxuriously imperfect and just as hard-wearing as real reptilian skin.
‘Full grain’ denotes the pattern on the outer layer of a skin. This stronger, more durable cut of leather uses the entire thickness of the hide. We prefer it to be milled or dried naturally as this helps preserve its wonderful pebbled texture without sanding or buffing the natural grain in the skin. This means every single bag produced is uniquely patterned.
The top-grade, full-grain leather we use for this finish is textured with a fine crosshatch pattern embossed into a wax coating by a stamping machine. The result is a highly scratch-resistant, durable, and easy to clean surface with water repelling properties.
Our signature pale-gold hardware and zips are constructed from Zamak.
