Lilyan James is solely designed for the women that forge their own paths.

Leaving what is comfortable, they are the much-needed sparks, the late-night inspiration types who are always thinking, traveling, connecting, and experiencing. They do not study life, but experience it. Embracing every mistake, curiosity, and celebration. They build a life that is theirs. They find unapologetic joy in the unconventional.

Their path is their own.



Our vision continues to be creating versatile products that encapsulate the condition and fluidity of what it means to be an American woman today. We value timeless techniques, yet also the environment and the craftsman. We value community, yet also exploration and redefinition. Each handbag is individually cut and sewn in the United States and made within rural communities by leather workers keen on applying a renewed sense of durability and character to modern handbag silhouettes. Each design is grounded in the belief that a woman ultimately defines what she carries.
