Dooney & Bourke
Dooney & Bourke has over a quarter century of experience combining superior materials and fine craftsmanship with traditional designs to create enduring, functional fine leather goods.
Founded in 1975 by H. Peter Dooney and Frederick Bourke, Dooney & Bourke took off with the development of All-Weather Leather-fine calfskin naturally processed to make it virtually indestructible. With hand stitching and solid brass hardware, handbags from this revolutionary leather look good and wear well. This early fusion of durability, functionality, and classic style has become the Dooney & Bourke hallmark.
In the past years Dooney & Bourke has introduced a whole host of collections inspired by new, innovative materials: from the water-proof rubber bottom of the Parasole line, specialty dyed French and Italian leathers, to the ecologically sound Bayou collection of alligator and ostrich print calfskin. Dooney & Bourke’s wide range of handbag designs includes everything from backpacks and stylish totes to lady-like small flap bags.
Each Dooney & Bourke product, from the pod backpack to the classic hobo, is united by a commitment to high function, good looks, and durability. Dooney & Bourke leather goods improve with time and wear to become a distinctive expression of their owner’s unique style.
