Why we love it: Exceptionally designed real leather bags, while aiming for the highest sustainable standards is why Aagé stands out.

Danish founders Trine and Sara believe the perfect bag is the one you reach for every day. It is sufficiently spacious and it makes you shine. Aagé pushes the sustainability agenda both by focusing on durable lasting designs, and by selecting collaborators who care about working conditions and the planet. Their ambition is to slow down, influence consumption patterns, and make sustainability the beautiful choice. Aagé uses real leather because they believe it is the best choice for making bags that last, both in terms of design and durability. They acknowledge that the leather industry is notorious for polluting and that is why they have selected collaborators who can demonstrate their efforts to minimize environmental impact while also maintaining fair conditions for the workers involved. Sustainability is a fuzzy word. For them it is about walking the walk. It is about putting action behind the words, considering multiple stakeholders, and always aiming a little bit higher for the next round of production. Aagé presents two bags: a cross-body and a tote. Both with lots of space, comfort, and of a gorgeous design to be proud of wearing.
