WHAT WE DO
An urban woman is by deﬁnition a commuter. Bike ride to work in rush hour trafﬁc. Lunch with a friend uptown. Opening night at a gallery downtown. Dinner, drinks and talk of business at a hole-in-a-wall restaurant midtown. All in a day’s work.
The way things stand now, she has but two options. If she wants to commute well, she must sacriﬁce style; and if she wants to look good, she must sacriﬁce comfort.
VereVerto creates leather handbags – clutches, backpacks, saddles – that bridge luxury with functionality for the day-to-night city lifestyle. With a couple switches, a backpack becomes a handbag or an over-the-shoulder transforms into a fine evening clutch.
VereVerto’s multifunctional leather bags are a luxury and an absolute necessity for the urban woman who wants to look good while deftly navigating the asphalt jungle she loves to call home.
HOW WE DO IT
VereVerto is Paige Smith and Consuelo Chozas. Our handbags are born out of our designer Paige's experience while biking around San Francisco’s pockmarked and trolleyed streets. Paige spent years dreaming up a solution to her bedeviled commute, but it took moving to Los Angeles, a fashion melting pot for her ideas to take shape. There she met Consuelo, the fireball Argentine-American entrepreneur who knows the business of leather like the back of her hand.
Paige’s design philosophy is ever-present in this handbag collection—stripped down to essentials, VereVerto designs celebrate detail, flawless functionality and, most of all, vehement rejection of frill. Consuelo travels the world over in search of the best of the best, such as ancient tanneries in the Spanish Castilla region and boisterous manufacturing workshops in Southern Spain.
The combination of our dual skills ensures the highest quality in design, functionality and materials. We hope it fills a need that you never knew you needed, just like it did for us.
