WHO WE ARE
Welcome to Sousa & Lobo™ - an American-born, Colombian-made, bold and beautiful lifestyle brand offering premium, handcrafted leather bags.

Sousa & Lobo™ prides itself on its commitment to provide the finest selection of full-grain cowhides, beautiful and thoughtful design, and above all, superb craftsmanship. Great thought, care, and attention to detail go into every item we make, complementing the natural markings, tone variations, and character of each hide.
We select only the highest quality, meticulously sourced full-grain cowhides to produce superior, exceptional, handcrafted leather bags. We create beautiful pieces from the heart of Colombia that are fashionable and at an affordable price.
WHY WE DO IT
Growing up in Colombia allowed me to witness firsthand the amazing work performed by our local artisans. At Sousa & Lobo™, we take pride in our products because of the work of hundreds of talented artisans that have dedicated their lives to mastering the art of leather craftsmanship for generations. Their loyalty, commitment, and superb craftsmanship are reflected in our exceptional line of genuine handmade leather goods.
I have resided in the U.S. for over ten years now. I am the proud mother of three children born in this great country. As a Colombian native, it has always been important for my husband and me to cultivate our children’s heritage. As a family, we started this business with two main objectives in mind. First, to create a demand for high-quality Colombian handmade leather goods to support local artisans in their work and in providing for their families. Second, to share with the world the stunning craftsmanship and noble tradition behind Colombian handmade leather goods.
We stand by each and every one of our products and know you will love them as much as we do.
