Laparelle creates stunning leather handbags that are designed & crafted in Canada.
About this project
The embodiment of style and structure, Laparelle is what you get when you combine the aesthetic of a fashion designer with the clean lines of an architect.
We are both women-on-the-go with busy careers, and craved a bag that could take us from 9 to 5 to happy hour to a night out. Seeking to stand out in a sea of totes and satchels, we set out to create something unique.
Starting with a classic staple, we then began to add our personal polish – think genuine leather, handcrafted assembly and locally sourced materials – all at that perfect price point.
And that’s how Laparelle reversible bags took shape, all of which are now designed and handcrafted in Toronto.
Our timeless designs co-ordinate with any outfit and the supple Italian leather is wearable in any season.
All our bags are reversible, 100% Italian leather inside and out.
1. Classic, Elegant and Reversible.
We want to give you something unique and new. We have designed these bags to be timeless in their aesthetic, 100% original, and they work with any outfit no matter what your personal style is (just check our website’s blog at www.laparelle.com)!
2. Hand-crafted quality.
Only Laparelle bags are this well-crafted and ready for everyday wearing. We take our production and quality control seriously to deliver a perfect product. Try one and see the difference!
In a world where there is an endless assortment of fast-fashion brands, mass production, copycats, and ever-changing trends, we at Laparelle want to do things differently. We care deeply about the environment, and we do this through selecting sustainable materials and we consider efficiency in our designs and production. We also believe it’s important to consider local merchants when making purchasing decisions, which makes Laparelle a good choice when shopping for handbags.
Our goal is to raise funds for attending the One-Of-A-Kind show in 2017. This will help us with our marketing initiatives to expand our collection. We cannot do it without your support!

Our Reversible Clutch.

Risks and challenges
We have many years of collective business experience and understand the realities of fulfilment and accountability.
Our products are hand-made so we want to keep our orders volume-controlled and manageable so that we can create quality goods in a timely manner. We have put limits on our rewards quantities to keep things realistic.
Our custom hardware is our signature and is produced on-order. We have developed a good relationship with our manufacturer for these items and will be relying on them to meet our timelines as well.
