It was an immense pleasure to sit down with Daphne Benzaquen to hear the heart and passion behind her online shop full of durable and beautiful handmade accessories from her homeland of Peru.

daph. was brought to life as a result of a practical need and led to an adventure full of self-taught crash courses in design, meetings with leather makers across Peru, lots of patience and endless imagination.

It’s a brand story you will love to hear and it will get you ready and excited to shop the high quality and durability of daph’s collection of everyday bags and accessories made to last through all of life's different experiences.
