B R U N O
"Bruno" is a tribute to my grandmother and all of the extraordinary women in my family. It was her maiden name. I've been sewing since she taught me to thread a needle at age 8.
I have memories of her teaching me the back stitch and straight stitch and tying a french knot. We embroidered, we crocheted, we sewed, cooked, and colored...I always had my hands in something creative at her house.
Gran was a tenacious, big-hearted woman. She made a mean cabbage roll, could cut a rug like nobody's business and was always up for an adventure.
I miss her... she will always be an inspiration.
xobruno comes from our obsession with leather and the way it wears and personalizes to you over time.
Our line is inspired by classic design, love of travel and the kind of bag that will stick around through thick and thin.
All of our bags are handcrafted in our Portland Oregon studio with the best leather, tools, materials and care.
