When you hit the streets, you carry your life in your bag. We could never find a bag that was chic AND made our lives easier. After years of searching, we finally decided to bring our vision to life: crafting a handbag with uncompromising beauty and utility.
to walk, to work, to function
We’re inspired by marcher, a French word with multiple meanings. It is the perfect expression of what we strive for: creating product with form and function in perfect harmony for today’s life on the go.
You can be seriously professional and fearlessly fun. You need a bag that fits your big life! Our goal is to simplify your struggles. We design bags that banish the black hole, protect your treasures and complement your style. Marcher carries you from coffee to cocktails, and everything in between.
Our bags are handmade with care, using the highest quality materials. We designed our business model to provide premium products for our customers while creating a living wage to our craftspeople. We strive for complete business transparency—because you deserve to understand how our processes impact people, the environment and our world as a whole.
Marcher believes in working toward a better world. We have researched extensively to source the most sustainable materials. We pay our makers fairly. We also support causes and movements that empower women, because others have encouraged and challenged us through our most difficult times. We wouldn’t be here without you.
Patti Harrison founded Marcher in 2016 after struggling for years to find the perfect bag. Her 15 year career creating performance athletic apparel for Nike, Adidas, and smaller emerging brands set her up for entrepreneurial success.This experience, coupled with a deep passion—some might say obsession—for bags, fueled her to create a brand that harmonizes form with function. She finds powerful inspiration in the people who have helped create Marcher, and feels especially grateful to the women who have influenced our bags through their thoughtful and insightful feedback.
