We are an Irish based company and an authorized dealer for all the brands that we present on our store. We are passionate about quality luxury bags, offering only those brands and products that we ourselves would be proud to own.
In our search for the perfect bag, we look for unique timeless classics that exude style, opulence and quality. Italy is home to the world's most famous fashion houses, turning out top quality craftmanship, talent and designs that have worldwide appeal. Our Made In Italy brands represent unmistakable elegance, excellent tailoring and exquisite materials, combined with unmatched innovation and creativity.
What we look for in our bags:
- Ethical and sustainable - Most of the world's leather comes from unregulated markets. We look for ethical and sustainable alternatives, preferring to choose European sourced leather goods.
- Timeless designs - Class, style and elegance that attract compliments and never go out of fashion.
- Made from high quality leather - There are many layers of leather. We look for bags to be made from good quality leather; not cheap layers, or off-cuts sewn together.
- Reinforced leather or sturdy hardware in areas that take extra wear, such as handles, feet and corners.
- Sturdy zips - No hard-to-find zip sliders, or zips that require two hands to open.
- Cleverly organised internal pockets - avoids that endless digging!
- Smell of quality - Unnatural ingredients and harsh chemicals can cause a strong and often pungent fake 'leather' smell. We look for manufacturers that source from top tanneries, hence our love for “Consorzio Vera Pelle conciata al Vegetale” and Made in Italy bags.
- Handmade vs mass produced - We love the unique markings and attention to detail that comes with handmade bags.
- Great reviews; We like to be satisfied that our products have already received high review ratings with our suppliers.
- Authenticity - With so many websites and chat forums dedicated to replica bags, we seek out those brands that stand out from the crowd and deserve introduction to new markets.

We love the DUST philosophy. It goes against the trend of industrialized production lines, with machines that produce massive quantities of identical medium-low quality products, in automated processing times.
DUST choose the slower path – they prefer to use the craftsman's hand to make unique retro-vintage designed goods that are genuine, stylish and practical.
Only the best quality leather is selected by DUST. It is rigorously vegetable-tanned, to ensure the creation of high-quality, high-end product. Tuscan vegetable tanning is the most traditional and recognizable technique that exists, and with zero environmental impact. Decades of experience hand-crafting leather have led DUST to use a strictly certified material for this traditional process.
Vegetable tanning gives the leather the following properties:
- unique colour and softness
- ages well, getting more beautiful over time
- suitable for those who are intolerant to metals
All goods are made by Italian craftsmen, using the best and strongest threads, zips and hardware. The unique look of each DUST bag is further enhanced by the clever combination of rivets, D-rings & padding, that is used to reinforce and strengthen the bags.
DUST is inspired by and wholly embraces the Italian tradition, products Made in Italy. Hand-crafting allows for the creation of a truly authentic product that will never be equal to any other.
Buying a DUST bag gives you the knowledge and guarantee of owning an object that is absolutely unique and incomparable, highly personal and different.
Very few brands have attained the prestigious 100% Made in Italy ITPI certification that Carbotti has.

Vegetable tanning uses only natural tree tannins. A peculiarity of this process is that the colour shade changes over the years. As each leather has different markings, each bag becomes more and more unique and beautiful over time.
