Have you ever heard of Aranaz bags?
Aranaz is a Filipino brand comprised by a mother-daughter-trio featuring new-fashioned Filipino artistry. Aranaz bags` signature style is the harmonious mix of indigenous Philippines materials accented with modern components and of-the-moment designs.
I must admit, I only recently came across this brand, which is a shame being a Filipino myself, but I first heard of the brand when I read an article about the Queen of Belgium whose favorite bags are of Aranaz. The queen was seen carrying several Aranaz clutches.
I was quickly mesmerized by the stunning designs of Aranaz bags, they´re truly unique and utterly creative. So I dug deeper about the women behind the brand and learned that the matriarch has been creating bags for several decades until her two daughters step in, leveled up the designs by injecting fresh concepts and introducing the brand to the international market.
The hands behind the bags are the creative locals. Everything is handmade – the curving, sewing, beading, and polishing – that´s why no two Aranaz bags are exactly the same. The indigenous materials used for the bag also depend on their outsourcing availability so that´s the reason why each design is available only in limited quantity.
I´m all about fabulous design ideas and creativity. The Aranaz bags are definitely in my book!
