Made for the 9-to-9 Woman
We believe that easier is always better. That busy women shouldn’t have to lug around multiple bags to go from meetings to cocktails. That no one should have to make a choice between function and fashion.We saw the need for a bag that did it all. One that was roomy enough to carry all the essentials and stylish enough to send the right message no matter what the setting. A bag that would make life easier for the woman who was on the go from 9AM to 9PM. It was also important that our products were ethically produced using sustainable materials and methods that were safe for the planet. We wanted to offer an alternative to impersonal bags that were not socially or environmentally responsible.
Basically, we wanted to create a bag that any woman would be proud to carry.
Inspired by California
Like many iconic fashion brands before us, we draw inspiration from California’s culture of hard work and innovation. It’s hard not to be inspired here— a place where start-up businesses are launched, where art, music and nature play, and where strong career-minded women thrive. Influenced by our San Francisco home, our collections reflect a modern aesthetic and purpose. Our Goal is to blend creativity and craftsmanship to create bags that will become stronger and more beautiful with time.
We believe in responsible stewardship of the planet. We work solely with Italian tanneries that source leather cast off from the meat industry, use a natural vegetable tanning process, and go beyond requirements to recycle waste in an environmentally responsible way. Our leather is never treated with harmful chemicals. Vegetable tanning uses leaves, bark, and other plant matter to create rich, earthy colors that grow more lustrous with age.
We are a passionate supporter of Commit 2 Change, a non-profit organization based in India that works to educate abandoned, displaced and impoverished girls so they can reach their full potential. In addition to standard education, girls are taught practical life skills like finance and problem solving. Perhaps even more importantly, Commit 2 Change helps girls heal from trauma and develop a strong sense of self-worth. In doing so, these girls become young women who create positive change in their lives and communities.
“If we can educate her, she will rise and lift up many.”
Saint Lombard is proud to donate to Commit 2 Change as we also believe in empowering women to live their best lives. By offering products that are sustainable, thoughtfully made, and functional enough to meet the demands of a busy personal life and career, our bags give women the freedom—and tools— to focus on making their own mark in the world.
