Laudividni founders Grace Tsao-Wu and Laura Kofoid have always been passionate about fashion. Their genuine love for this industry eventually led to the two friends becoming business partners. Their mission is to empower women through affordable, personalized style that’s easily accessible.
They specialize in custom-made bags and there are no other apparel or accessories being offered in the site. Currently, they have 8 different types of customizable handbags displayed on the site – wristlet, clutch, hobo, shoulder bag, classic shoulder bag, satchel, tote and shopper. Although there is not a whole lot of styles to choose from, the styles available have classic, timeless silhouettes and are also pretty stylish.
The prices of the bags start at $95 for the small wristlets and bigger bags range from $200 – $550. This price is a little bit steep compared to other pre-designed RTW bags but then again, these bags offer personalized style along with quality hardware and materials. They use premium leather and sturdy hardware so the custom bag will have a great finish.
Both the website and their Design Center are very well made. We are very impressed with the 3D bag images displayed on the website. The awesome, almost lifelike visuals make it easy for any customer to choose the bag they want to design, as well as create their own designs. However, there isn’t a wide smorgasbord of colored leather and crazy prints in the Design Center. The leather options available on the site are classic and sophisticated, none of the busy prints that look tacky. They even have croc embossed and snakeskin printed leathers to choose from.
The process is made to be easy and fairly quick. Just click on the panels of the bag and choose from the leather options. You will also be able to customize the hardware and lining of your chosen bag. There is a good range of fabric options for this – solid colors and some animal prints are available. After the design process, you can choose to save your work and even share it. Delivery takes 2-3 weeks and all the custom handbags are made in Chicago. Returns are accepted as long as the item is unused and returned within 21 days of receipt.
Overall, we are very impressed with the site’s performance. Their product offerings have great quality, there is a nice range of options for customization, plus their design center is highly-equipped with the right tools to design the perfect custom bag.
