J. Longobardo

Don't cry if you can’t see the sun, your tears won’t let you see the stars. 

Create your story

Inspired by the need to have our daily essentials travel with us, we designed our multi-functional pieces to bridge artfulness with invention. From our tote with its detachable clutch to the clutch that morphs into a shopper~we give the wearer more than just a handbag.

We hand-select the best materials we can find, and when we can't find them, we design and create them ourselves. Each bag begins with our supple Italian leather. Our hardware is hand-cast, our textures are custom-made, and our pieces are hand-sewn~all in Los Angeles. 

We believe that every handbag tells its own story. Create your story with J. Longobardo.

We created ours

Transmuting tradition into innovation is at the heart of J. Longobardo. Jennifer Longobardo Thompson introduced her vision of traditional yet innovative handbags in 2014 after seven years of designing her own unique pieces. Jennifer was raised by her Spanish Flamenco dancing mother, Mari Longobardo, to never to dim her light and use her ancestral fire to invigorate and disrupt tradition, while simeloutanesly embracing it.

Building on this idea of transmuting tradition, the fiery passion of Spanish culture lives on through each piece J. Longobardo creates. We seek to inspire women, youth, and communities globally to redefine normal and push the boundaries of what is possible.
