It all starts with the right bag—one that can become your reliable daily companion. Motherhouse is a top-quality Japanese leather bag and accessories brand that offers a variety of options to suit your needs and style.
The stylish design of the bags not only matches well with different outfits but also carefully considers functionality and storage capacity hidden in a clean form. Motherhouse is on a simple mission to demonstrate the unlimited—yet undiscovered—potential of developing countries through monozukuri, or “the making of things.” The company ensures each and every one of its bags comes with a rich backstory of where it was first handcrafted by local artisans in these countries.

The monozukuri process begins by shining light on the untapped possibilities of these local materials and showing the world the hidden potential of emerging nations. It discovers raw materials at the site. For example, Motherhouse, which specializes and is known for its exquisite leather bags, has its own factory in Bangladesh as the country has an abundance of top-quality leather and craftsmen.
Most of the leather goods have been designed by Motherhouse and come in several varieties: retro styles, wavy patterns and “gradation”—a type of leather that mixes light and dark colors. Motherhouse believes its efforts to find the best match of material and design make it stand out as a brand. Inspired by Japanese design, the products are unique, heartwarming and made to be your lifelong partner. In order to achieve a world with more laughter and warmth—part of its purpose—Motherhouse bags aim to illuminate the beauty of diversity.
