Tired of searching for the perfect leather bag? You’ll find it at Chicago’s women-owned Laudi Vidni. You can customize top-quality bags and accessories for both women and men at their one-of-a-kind Lincoln Park design shop/retail store, featured in the Louis Vuitton City Guide Chicago as one of the best boutiques in the city. The company’s name says it all: It’s the word individual spelled backward.

Laudi Vidni Harmony Shoulder Bag

Design your own bag

You’ll find gorgeous leather bags for travel, work, running errands or a night out. There are 40 styles to choose from, ranging from crossbody bags for women, tote bags, leather shoulder bags, briefcases for men, clutches, backpacks, belt bags, and even a selection of wallets and card cases to match.

Once you select your bag style, customize it with a choice of over 50 luxurious leathers in a range of colors and textures, whether it’s croco black, cayenne red, leopard, or lilac. Then, select the interior lining — perhaps raspberry or pumpkin, or a more subtle gray or putty — and add a monogram if you’d like. Opt for gold- or silver-tone hardware and choose your desired strap length. Within three weeks, you’ll receive your forever bag. Laudi Vidni guarantees you’ll love it. If you don’t, they’ll take it back.

A custom-made bag from Laudi Vidni reflects the company’s eco and ethical focus. Nothing is made until you order it, so there is no waste and nothing ends up in a landfill. The company sources its leathers from environmentally conscious tanneries and uses organic cotton linings and low-lead, nontoxic hardware. Your bag is made to last a lifetime.

Laudi Vidni bags are priced in line with traditional department store brands, ranging from $135 for a wristlet and $495 for a tote bag to $695 for a leather briefcase. The best-selling Vivo Phone Crossbody bag is $295, and the Harmony Shoulder Bag is $345.
