Since 2009, Philini München designs and creates bags and accessories born from a natural balance between finest craftsmanship and the inspiration of womens’ individuality. Philini creates a very limited number of each bag – in many cases only one single piece. The creation of each bag includes two steps with two teams: one from Germany and one from Moldova, the home country of Philini’s designer Nataly Brunner. The bags are designed and developed in Germany and then, together with an outstanding team of artisans, created and manufactured in Moldova – a country famous for its longstanding tradition as manufacturer of high-quality and individual leather goods for leading international customers. Each bag is handmade from the first to the last step by one and the same craftsman leading to an outstanding quality level and a maximum of individuality.

Everything began in a french restaurant on valentines day and it began quiet simply - with an idea to make a line of accessories, that would be free from fashion trends; free from fanaticism and commercial borders; an idea of connecting unique, creative people together; of involving precious models, who are may be not perfect, but full of life and virtue... It was not about bags in fact, but about people. About their values and about their freedom to be so - how they are with their "art to be."

It began at the age of 13 years. Nataly’s dream was to make women to express their inside beauty through their look, clothes, and accessories. First steps have already been taken during the studies at college in Moldova, where she felt after a very short period of time that she is impatient to begin the practical realization of her dream. Just 20 years old, Nataly opened her first fashion house. With ups and downs she went through the first experiences and understood very quickly that creativity is just a small part of making a dream come true.

After moving to Germany, the biggest changes and real steps to come closer to make her dream come true were done. A real adventure in combination with hard times – growing up her son and at the same time jumping into a totally new world of things that she never saw before in her life. To learn a new culture, a new language, and new people made her to grow up and to even strengthen the wish to realize her biggest dream. When it is about Nataly, it is in fact not much about fashion. It is more about a lifestyle, a way to be free and to believe in people. People who go through life with a dream, with a wish, with curiosity, and with craziness. In fact, it is about dreamers with clear goals in life.

Women. Women themselves and their life story inspire me. Most of the bags wear the names of real women that I met in my life and left a beautiful story. Every bag is created inspired by their character. Behind every bag is a life story.

Philini Bags are made from a superior quality of naturally tanned leather with a vintage charm sometimes, very soft and lightweight.
