The handbag industry is over saturated with mediocre products and the truly great ones are too expensive to obtain. Therefore, founder, Justin Gloston, set out to design a handbag that gives you all the luxuries of a high end designer handbag but at an attainable price. He also wanted to create something different yet recognizable. He wants to reform the current ideals of what is considered 'Luxury' and return the focus to design, detailing, and overall quality...thus creating an informed and 'R3FORMed' customer that is stylish, confident, and most importantly an individual.

“We wanted to create something different yet recognizable. We wanted to "REFORM" the current ideals of what is considered luxury and bring the focus back to design, details and quality. Not quantity. By doing so, we are hoping to created a more informed and "R3FORMED" customer that is stylist, confident and most importantly, an individual."

Justin Gloston studied Painting and Fashion Design and has almost 10 years of experience working in the fashion industry as a Designer specializing in Handbags and Small Leather Goods. With experience ranging from Luxury High-End Contemporary to Fast Fashion Trend, Justin has a strong understanding of design, construction, and the ever changing needs of the handbag consumer.

R3FORM handbags are made with carefully chosen genuine leather from some of the best tanneries in the world. In addition we sometimes like to incorporate the use of some of the best and unique synthetic leather the world has to offer. R3FORM believes that utilizing synthetic leather in conjunction with genuine leather is not only the future of our industry, but it is very forward and gives a modern futuristic feel to the product which is essential in this highly synthetic and technological world we are living in.

We are constantly working on new and exciting collections and collaborations. R3FORM is inspired by the world around us. Music, technology, modern architecture, the vibrant colors and energy of metropolises like New York and Tokyo....that's what inspires us to create.
