Barini Leather

By Suzanne O'Connor

If you love high end, quality crafted handbags…. but not the over the top prices, you’ll go nuts at Barini Leather.

At his shop, you’ll find beautifully crafted, high quality leather pieces at 40-70% below similar retail. If you only buy designer labels, for the designer name, his shop isn’t for you. Barini’s Leather is for people who demand quality, insist on beautiful design and who really love leather.

Here you’ll find beautiful, meticulously crafted Italian leather handbags, wallets, briefcases at prices way below what you’d expect to pay for such quality bags from couture designers.

Owner and craftsman, Gary Barini can make any handbag for you at his wholesale price from Italian tanned calfskin, calf suede, buffalo or lambskin from over 600 leather choices. He can copy those ultra high-end, “world famous” couture handbag styles, with higher quality craftsmanship at 10%-20% of their retail value, but he won’t do replicas.

I marveled at an amazing leather handbag that Gary made that resembles a Bottega Venetta Bag with it’s famous basket weave pattern. Here his version was $438-$875 in different sizes. Retail would run $1000-$1900. The designer bag would run ya upwards of $9000.

Gary’s version of a world famous style bag, without the “name” hardware or stamp was $910 instead of $2000-$2500. The actual designer bag would run $8000-$12,000. Gary sells his beautifully crafted version directly to the public at his wholesale direct price.

Gary can help you design and custom make, repair or refurbish any handbag out there from a vintage Chanel or Louis Vuitton to a Birkin bag.

Gary is honest, is a leather perfectionist using old world craftsmanship. An expert pattern maker, Gary has strong ethics in manufacturing. He doesn’t do exact copies of anything… just similar.  Everything is made right on the premises of his small storefront.

So if you love high quality leather goods at prices that are a bargain, this place is for you! I can’t say enough great things about this place. It’s THAT good!
Handbag lovers, look out! This one is a gem!
