TRAVEL AND LEISURE HAND-MADE LEATHER BAG, IMPECCABLY CRAFTED IN ITALY, DESIGNED BY YOU. We don't do collections, nor we maintain inventory stocks. Every single UGLYS is a unique one, totally customized and timeless: you can easlily define style, color and finishing of each bag to have a product that represents the true essence of yourself.
The quality of our handwork compares to the finest European fashion houses. Our exquisite leathers are produced in Santa Croce sull’Arno near Florence, region famous worldwide for the tanning of superior leather.
They are then sent to Naples, where fine leather goods have been handcrafted for centuries and where impeccable sartorial elegance is rooted in the culture.
Our timeless and infinite collection of leather bags offers the classic lines and functional luxury that appeal to both men and women. Everything we make is custom, produced by hand according to your design and impeccably crafted with the very finest materials.
This bespoke process means your bag reflects your personal aesthetic instead of random seasonal trends or a stylist’s whim.
We thought that such an original approach deserved an equally unique name so we came up with one that turns the usual conventions upside down: UGLYS. With this revolutionary brand, we usher in a new era that empowers the individual to define what is beautiful.
IItalian artistry is synonym with beauty quality and tradition. That’s why our artisans are carefully selected beyond the average Italian craftsmen, we included only those artisans who’s families have lived and breathed this craft for generations.
