Done in a soft-grained Italian calf leather, Tulipano has a petal-like feel and a subtle bloom-esque shape, similar to the flower it’s named for. It’s spacious enough to hold all your must-haves and more (scarf, travel mug, lotion, et al.), with an interior pocket stitched into the durable canvas lining to keep those hard-to-corral items organized. And see that long shoulder strap? It’s detachable, so you can crossbody it or tote it by the crook of your elbow.
They’re the duo behind the now-iconic drawstring bucket bag. And Rachel Mansur and Floriana Gavriel’s story is one of those overnight-successes that’ll make anyone’s ears perk up: Girl meets girl at XX concert in LA.

Here’s the rundown: no overt branding or extra frills, just clean, sophisticated—and yet no less practical—Italian-made bags designed with the minimalist in mind.
