You might not be familiar with the name, but Mansur Gavriel has what The Telegraph has dubbed “the most popular bag in the world,” and rightfully so. In fact, this bag has been purchased a whopping 56,732 times, and that is just from the beginning of 2015. It is also currently sold out, and according to The Telegraph this is not an unusual thing. Especially with the Bucket Bag being priced at under $500.
Founded in 2012 by Rachel Mansur and Mariana Gavriel. Two days after the duo met (at a concert, mind you) they started designing. Their philosophy behind the design is an emphasis on quality leather and workmanship with a minimization in the cost towards hardware. Obviously, these bags are gorgeous. The demand for these bags is so high that when these bags are finally restocked in August, there is a limit on the number of bags that a customer can buy. Customers are limited to one bag at the time of purchase.
They come in a variety of colors, and to make the bags even more personalized, you can choose the color of the interior as well. The bags are made of Italian Leather from the Veneto Region of Italy. You can purchase the Bucket Bag in three different sizes: the Bucket Bag, the Mini Bucket, and the Mini Mini. Mansur Gavriel also offers backpacks, totes, and clutches that are all made with Vegetable Tanned Leather with no synthetic top finishes, meaning this season’s It Bag wears beautifully over time.
Needless to say, my name is on their newsletter and I will be praying for one of their bags come August.
