Created to meet the individual needs of women, Laudi Vidni offers custom leather purses priced under $500 with nine handbag silhouettes, including a cosmetic bag, wristlet, clutch, hobo, satchel, two shoulder bags and two generous totes. After selecting a silhouette, customers choose from 40 leathers, ranging from essentials like pebble grain and patent leather, to bolder choices such as “fuchsia printed snake,” a blend of pinks, blacks and reds patterned to look like snake skin. Unlike virtually all other handbags, which are manufactured in Asia, Laudi Vidni handbags are impeccably constructed in the U.S. at a Chicago-area manufacturer.
