“The challenge is to dialogue between sounds and the product, to make a bag represent a song”.

Luis Negri

Negri Bags was born from the talent of its creator, Luis Negri, an enthusiastic craftsman of Italian nationality renowned for his high-quality designs of instrument cases.

After a modest beginning, Luis managed to make his cases sought-after by owners of the world's most precious violins, including legendary instruments like Stradivarius and Guarnerius, and being chosen by prestigious musicians such as Lord Yehudi Menhuin, Ruggiero Ricci, Akiko Suwanai, Vadim Repin, Linus Roth, and Maxim Vengerov. His work had become synonymous with exceptional quality, functionality, and aesthetics.

The success and reputation achieved by Negri Cases propelled Luis Negri to apply his expertise in the world of luxury accessories. With a personal vision of luxury and contemporary approach, he created a collection of handbags that embodies the essence of timeless craftsmanship and sophisticated elegance and immediately took the industry by storm. His creations are the result of over 30 years of experience and specialised knowledge in upholstery and marquetry.

Through its name, exceptional craftsmanship intertwines with a passion for music and design, turning its customers into ambassadors of elegance and distinction as they carry a unique and extraordinary piece that transcends fleeting fashion trends.

The box bag

Negri Bags and cases have become renowned for their craft production and impeccable design, and its iconic box bag follows the same path. It is the balance between beauty and pragmatism, the classic and the provocative, which sets these playful accessories apart, elevating them to the realm of the artistic. These are truly handbags in art form.

Constructed using a very light basic structure of poplar wood, Luis’ true focus lies in combining exquisite colours with the use of the very best raw materials. Negri bags are made from the highest quality leathers and skins such as calf, deer, python, and a wide range of reptiles including the American Alligator, the African Varanus lizard and the South American Yacaré. The interiors are made of goat suede and first-rate microfiber. The fittings are of solid bronze, handcrafted in the Italian city of Varese, and are plated in gold or palladium.

Even to the casual observer, it is clear that Luis’ passion for music has a strong influence on the bags and cases he produces, and like music, his collections are inspired by different and variable emotions, occasions and styles rendering them unique and timeless. These bags define contemporary vogue yet their appeal remains enduring in an otherwise transitory fashion world. They reflect the individuality and emotional nature of Luis Negri and that of those who wear them.
