QUIDDITY is for the MODERN EXPLORER. We create meticulously handcrafted leather bags and accessories using only vegetable tanned leather from Tuscany, Italy.
We believe in preserving artisanal skills & traditions while also adapting them for the modern world. Each piece is reliable, conscientiously made, and perfect for those who value high quality craftsmanship. Our products have purpose and personality.
Quiddity is helmed by Filipino-Chinese sisters Stephanie and Genevieve Go, who both share a love for handbags, and an appreciation for the exceedingly rare, well-made, handcrafted bag.
In 2014, with the goal of expanding their crafts-centric brand Quiddity into handbags and other fine leather goods, Genevieve set off on scholarship to Accademia Riaci in Florence, Italy, to be trained in leather bag making.
She then went on to do an internship at a bag factory near Florence which produces handbags for several international brands, including Proenza Schouler. Upon returning to Manila, the sisters spent more than a year developing their designs and prototypes, and road-testing their products. They then re-launched Quiddity in December 2016 as a fine leather goods maker.
