Collection: Why Hammitt

We believe in integrity - and epic parties

In 2008, we dreamt of radically redesigning the contemporary handbag experience. A small team of beach dwellers began carving out a new, customer-focused world : A world where form meets function, price integrity triumphs and lifetime promises reign supreme. Oh, and we learned how to throw a really good party. Just ask our over 800 retail partners and fervent hometown crowd.

We believe functionality comes first

We believe functionality comes first

We design to surprise and delight with every innovation, staying one step ahead of your wildest wishlists. Whether it’s an accessible cell phone pocket, pull-out changing pad, six-way reversibility or straps that adjust for every height, there are nuggets of functionality in every Hammitt silhouette. Cheers to that.
