ABOUT THE BRAND


Calin's mission is to empower you to accentuate

your individuality and celebrate who you are.


A NOTE FROM OUR FOUNDER

We all have that vision of having a Cher Horowitz-worthy closet, brimming with our dream wardrobe and dressing like the fashion icon we were born to be. But instead, we're usually faced with the way harsh reality of "never having anything to wear."

When shopping for handbags, I found that I was typically stuck with two options. Either splurge on a high-quality, neutral designer handbag that went with everything or, buy a trend-of-the-moment fast-fashion bag that usually ended up in the giveaway pile after a few wears. I knew there had to be a better option.

I didn't want to compromise when it came to quality or style and certainly wasn't planning on spending my entire paycheck on a bag anytime soon.

I decided to build a brand for women like me, who appreciate quality, sophisticated styles, and thoughtful details. Personal style is one of the most impactful forms of self-expression. I wanted to create products that you would be proud to be seen in, that encourage you to express your personality and experiment with your style.

So cheers to owning your confidence, being unapologetic about your goals, embracing your individuality, and celebrating your style.


Empowered Style

Calin's interchangeable covers put you in the driver's seat to finally dress the way you've always envisioned. Effortlessly switch up your look to fit your mood, the occasion, or destination. Our goal is to empower you to look and feel your best at every moment, from running errands to a black-tie wedding. With Calin, you can put your personality on display and look as radiant on the outside as you are on the inside.


Redefined Luxury

Calin challenges the traditional concepts of luxury. We believe true luxury is not having to compromise on quality, taste, or values. We created a bag to covet that is steeped in style and quality, yet is good for the planetand your wallet.

Luxury and sustainability don't have to be mutually exclusive. We source the finest, most supple leathers from a family-owned Italian tannery that is a world leader in sustainability.

Each cover is thoughtfully designed and carefully curated to help you build a collection of personal treasures that light you up when you wear them. Calin handbags are timeless keepsakes that last a lifetime.


Streamlined Lifestyle

Life is busy. When you're juggling a million things, the last thing you need is to have left your wallet in your other bag.

We know that it's not enough just to look put together. To make it through your on-the-go life, you have to be put together as well. Instead of constantly switching all your items from bag to bag, simply keep your essentials in Calin's Insert to save you time and keep you organized. Now, when you want to change your bag, all you have to do is put your Insert in a new Calin cover. You can even toss it in your work tote or your gym bag. You'll never have to tear apart your apartment, searching for your keys again.
