We believe silence is a new luxury in noisy times. NOWIŃSKA is a niche brand of customisable handbags crafted in line with silent and refined craftsmanship. We create high-quality bags made of sustainably sourced leather. By selling directly through our own channels, we skip the middle costs and make high-end products affordable.
Each NOWIŃSKA bag is proudly made in Warsaw,
in small workshops by artisans who stay true to their traditional craft. Designer Maria Nowińska used to live in Italy and she remains inspired by expert craftsmanship honed by Italian artisans.
We are mindful of how we may affect the environment.
We care about who we partner with.
We focus on sustainability by sourcing excess leather stock from renowned Italian factories designed for major brands that were unable to utilise the stock.
By using surplus materials we reduce the environmental impact caused by the leather tanning process.
We turn a leftover into a durable product.
We manufacture locally in Poland and make sure each NOWIŃSKA bag conforms to fair trade principles
We love to see how you style your NOWIŃSKA bag, so tag us on Instagram #nowinskabags.

We reuse surplus leather which was produced by renowned Tuscany tanneries.
Our bovine leather is a byproduct of the meat and dairy industry. Our vegetable tanned leather avoids the use of toxic substances like chrome VI and our hardware is also made from low-lead natural brass.
We offer free product care services like repairing or cleaning on all our products.
We support local communities.
Our handbags are made in limited quantities by a small factory in Poland and our straw bags are handwoven by female artisans from Bali.
Jaka jest różnica pomiędzy skórą naturalną a eko skórą? Ta pierwsza to często tzw. „by product”, czyli odpad innych gałęzi przemysłu, ta druga jest zazwyczaj wykonana z plastiku, najczęściej poliuretanu, PVC lub poliestru, czyli nie biodegradowalnych materiałów będących pochodną ropy naftowej.
