Brahmin stands for authentic American style, enduring craftsmanship, and fashion-forward innovation. Brahmin creates exquisite handbags and accessories from the most premium materials. With an expertise for mixed media and exotic embossed leathers, it takes two dozen skilled artisans over 100 steps to make each Brahmin handbag. Brahmin began as a family owned business in 1982 with an unwavering dedication to craftsmanship, ingenious design and magnetic beauty. Joan Martin and her husband Bill achieved the American dream by following their entrepreneurial drive to create the finest handbags made in America.
