Le Bas are a design studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina. They were formed in 2009 by Dolores Mouriño and Lucila De Paula, who met at the city's Design University in 2003.
They produce bags in small runs in Argentina using smooth fine grain vegetable tanned leathers and water resistant cotton canvas. All their hardware is crafted in brass by local artisans.
Le Bas value the elemental beauty of materials, local heritage and the harmony in craft. They believe in the importance of a slow thoughtful process in the creation of each object, endorsed by the power of simplicity and function. They pursue classic simplicity and essential functionality building high quality products that will last the test of time and adapt to the changing needs of our customer.
