- The leathers and colors are beautiful.
- They are SO sturdy and will last forever.
- The designs are timeless yet interesting.
- The hardware is top-quality.
- The range of sizes offers something for every purpose.
- They are 100% made in the USA.

- Worth mentioning again: they are beautiful and full of character!
These bags are the real deal. Neva Opet offers original, handmade bags and accessories crafted by hand in small batches out of Atlanta, GA. Their philopsphy: "We believe in simplicity of design and excellent craftsmanship. Our line emphasizes subdued colors and shapes with a minimal and modern aesthetic to produce pieces that can be carried anywhere."
Owner and founder Rachael is completely self taught when it comes to designing and leather working. Her creative outlet became her full-time business in 2014 and she and her team member Kelly personally sew and finish each and every item in the Neva Opet collection. Her passion and goal is to bring every woman a well-made bag that lasts through years and trends.
The Neva Opet team includes Kelly, who joins Rachael in sewing and assembling each bag, and Corrie, the cutting lead, who inspects the hides for quality and then cuts each pattern. The magic all happens in-house in their studio in Atlanta, and all materials are sourced from small to mid-sized US owned and operated companies. Your bag will be 100% American made and designed.
This line is a treat for the senses and a delight for anyone who appreciates a perfect balance of functionality and beauty.
"Your bag should work as hard as you do. Beat it up and wear it forever!"
Leather Care: Your bag should stand the test of time. Great leather and materials last for years and look better with age and wear. Each stain or scratch will make your bag uniquely yours. But if you wish to spot clean your bag, we advise using warm water or a mild saddle soap with a soft cloth while cleaning in small circular motions. We suggest conditioning your bag every 6-12 months with a leather conditioner, such as Fiebing's Aussie Leather Conditioner to keep your piece well hydrated.
