Kristina George is a contemporary, handbag brand with the vision to create timeless, luxurious and bold looks intended to complement the modern woman and her lifestyle. All Kristina George bags are handcrafted at theirr atelier Istanbul. Designed by Krasimira Georgieva and Kamola Taflan who came to teh US from Eastern European roots for university. Sharing cultural similarities and the realities they were both expatriates, Krasimira and Kamola developed a strong bond and have since been the best of friends.
The essence of the Kristina George core collection is a chic, glamorous and sophisticated attitude all the while maintaining a practical sensibility. The brand recognizes the sentiment that style sees no age limit, nor seasonality, and thus designed a collection that is both cross-generational and cross-seasonal. Carefully choosing all elements to intimately define the quality and individuality of each handbag, Kristina George collaborated with a family-owned atelier in Europe with over 30 years of experience in luxury handmade leather goods and custom-made accessories.
The handcrafted bags are made with the highest quality calfskin leather handpicked from a tannery offering eco-friendly German and Italian dyes, processed using special techniques and finishes to create the desired depth of color without sacrificing the leather’s natural softness and glow. The three layer-cut crystal stones featured in two of the models are hand-cut by an award-winning European artist praised for his dedication to detail and attention to absolute precision. All hardware is custom designed and gold-plated.
We're excited to bring their debut collection to you -- exquisite aesthetic that encompasses both the practical luxury and evening glamour attitude of the modern woman.
