Handmade Bags by Rubbertree


Mynila Team April 5, 2018 Lifestyle

RUBBERTREE Design Studio is headed by Ruben and Trina Flores. With backgrounds in industrial design and studio arts, their design method is grounded on a shared aesthetic and a dedication to materials, technique and process.

“Our pieces are made to celebrate the material and to establish clean silhouettes. Each item is made with the utmost care and attention by our small team, to ensure you enjoy each piece for a long long time. Due to the nature of genuine leather, with every hide having its own distinct story, each product has its own identity.”

On each piece you can find a wooden tag with the bag number and their signatures, marking their dedication to every piece that they make in the studio.

“We hope you will enjoy using your piece for a long time. We welcome stories that you will share, as a commitment to giving you a purposeful and trusted piece that will be with you for many years.”

Behind RUBBERTREE Design Studio there is a small team headed by their founders Ruben and Trina Flores and two assistants. The team of four hand-cuts and hand-stitches all the bags that they produce.

“We take the time to plan out and assemble each item we make, and it is with much pride that we number and sign each bag behind the wood logo tags stitched unto them.”
