Lidia May crafts leather handbags with rich hand embroidery embellishment. The designs are inspired by the Contemporary Diplomat, women at the top of their careers, who build bridges between cultures, and whose style give hints of all the places they have been.
Two groups produce the embroideries on Lidia May bags, a select team of master craftsmen working in our sun-lit atelier in Dhaka and a pioneer group of women artisans, issuing from among the most disadvantaged urban poor and working to become respected embroidery professionals. Using thread and needle our makers are sewing hope, courage and a future for their families, one stitch at a time. Every Lidia May bag connects the customer to its maker and has a measurable, positive social impact.
