Esin Akan is a London-based brand specialising in distinctive and timeless leather handbags sustainably crafted for confident women to stand out while enjoying every occasion. Founded in 2012 by Esin Akan, the versatile handbags are designed to be worn in any setting to help busy, multi-tasking women enjoy every moment of their life.   

Designed in London and handcrafted in Europe, Esin Akan bags are made to last with the highest quality leather and exceptional craftsmanship. In line with the brand’s commitment to a sustainable future, for every item sold, Esin Akan plants a tree aimed to fight against climate change. 




While I was making leather bags for the world’s most prestigious brands, including Burberry and Anya Hindmarch, I spotted a gap in the market for practical, stylish and designer-quality bags at accessible prices. 

During my MBA in 2012 at London Business School, I was surrounded by bright and inspiring women with active and busy lifestyles. I wanted to create a collection that would carry them from Eurostar to a meeting, from a meeting to an evening invitation and help them feel confident and elegant on all occasions.
Combining my passion for designing and developing beautiful bags with trusted supplier relationships in Europe, the brand “Esin Akan” was born in 2012. Since then, our customers, their lifestyles, needs and aspirations have always been at the heart of our designs. Our mission is to empower women to stand out on all occasions and enjoy every moment of their life. Esin
