In 2018, the MATINE label relaunched with a new collection and a new vision:
reimagining American luxury.
Our fine leather handbags are now produced exclusively in Manhattan’s garment district, and with that shift we are also examining what it can mean to be made in America. We’re forgoing the traditions of the utilitarian, the masculine, the rustic. In their place we’re creating a luxury of elegant minimalism, delicate craftsmanship and understated, yet bold femininity.
We believe in the skills of our artisans to bring this vision to life. We believe in independent suppliers, family businesses, and the quality of their work to sustain for years to come. We believe in a mindful luxury with a conscious footprint, where materials and finished goods travel across state lines rather than oceans.
