Who we are

Solving the dilemma of style, quality, and price in the perfect bag

DIZAIND is a Swiss brand established in 2014 by the Jonas and Santare Slavinskas family.

It started as a result of Santare’s passion (not too snobbish) for shoes. She found it difficult to find a good quality bag that matched different pairs of shoes without looking too boring. One store had the right style, but not the right color. Another had the right style and color, but the price was too high. Although Santare spent a significant amount of time in stores, she always returned home empty handed and frustrated. Santare decided to quit her day job to start her own handbag business, and DIZAIND was born!

DIZAIND’s goal is to enable modern women to create bags in their own styles and preferred colors, bags as unique as their owners’ personalities. Santare decided that these one-of-a-kind bags must be crafted from the finest quality leather, but they must be more affordable than many high-end fashion brands.

How we came-up with the brand name

How should our customer-designed handbags be branded? We did not feel it would do our customers justice to use our name or an inventive name, which is common in the fashion industry, on this new brand. Therefore, we decided to call the brand DESIGNED, but it is spelled as it sounds /dɪˈzʌɪnd/. The name simply means that the bag you bought was DIZAIND BY YOU or FOR YOU.

Make your bag unique and personal

With our unique, fun 3D design tool, you step into the shoes of a designer.

DIZAIND offers the largest selection of customization options for your bag. You can mix colors and materials for many individual elements of the bag. For example, transform your bag from classy to modern by changing style details or adding pockets and accessories. We also offer different shoulder straps in adjustable lengths to match your size and bag-carrying habits.

If you want to make your bag more personal, we will replace our logo with your monogram. With millions of possible bag style combinations, you can acquire a truly one-of-the-kind bag.

The type of leather determines how your bag will look over time

We use the highest grade full grain leather from European and U.S. tanneries.

Full grain leather hides retain their entire grain (top layer). Full grain is the best, strongest, and most durable leather, and since the grain is so tight, it resists moisture very well. Marks accumulate on the grain over an animal's lifetime, so only the cleanest hides can be used for full grain leather, making these hides the most expensive and most difficult to find.

Over time, your bag’s full grain leather will look nicer and nicer. It will develop a patina from being handled.

Luxury at an affordable price

Bags from high-end fashion brands that are made with full grain leather cost an average of two to five times more than DIZAIND bags.

To make our bags more affordable, we sell our products exclusively via www.dizaindbags.com, which allows us to avoid hefty retail mark-ups. Although we ship leather from Europe and the U.S., we produce the bags in Asia. We do not compromise on quality, so we partner with the most experienced artisans, including those who craft bags for other well-known fashion brands.

We oversee the material selection and crafting process. We maintain high-quality standards in each step, and we obsessively check each bag before it is packed and shipped to you. Our quality speaks for itself. None of our bags has been returned!

Be a part of sustainable fashion

Sustainability is part of our business philosophy, and each of our bags is made-to-order. Therefore, we do not participate in mass production, and we do not have products write-offs. All our bag materials are sourced based strictly on your bag design specifications, which reduces waste. In addition, the leather used in our bag production is a by-product of the food industry, ensuring that no animal has been killed for its skin.
