Shana Luther is a collection of leather goods created for people who appreciate beautiful, well crafted bags without a lot of fuss. The brands ethos is rooted in modern, clean design made with thoughtfully sourced materials and impeccable craftsmanship. Shana designs each bag to fit seamlessly into a woman’s wardrobe with original and simple, yet detailed design elements. Influenced by modern women, inspiration comes from the laid-back, yet totally chic Brooklyn style she sees everyday. She loves designing bags for the creatives and professionals who love fashion but don’t necessarily always follow it- much like herself.
The majority of her collection is handcrafted by herself and her trusted team within her Brooklyn studio. Elements of certain styles are small-batch manufactured with local, family owned companies. Shana strongly believes in American craftsmanship and is proud to be both a Brooklyn Made and Made in NYC brand.
BKBean began when Shana began accessorizing her first baby girl, born in February ’16. Shoes being the next best thing to a good bag, Shana prototyped her way into making a line of colorful leather baby shoes. All BKBean shoes are handcrafted with love in Brooklyn, NY.

What People are Saying…
“……I purchased a black June Tote a few months ago because I thought I needed a “professional interview bag”. It has not only been that but my “everyday, all the time, favorite tote bag. Shana gives exceptional client services and being in the retail world for almost 20 years, that experience is everything to me! I give that to all my clients and desire it for myself.”
“I absolutely love everything about the PL Pouch. The size is perfect and holds my keys, credit cards, iphone and a lipstick easily. It is just so easy to carry. I am not a gold person yet I love the gold on one side and bone on the other- the crinkly, yet soft gold is joyful to me. I will be carrying this all summer long and am looking forward to it.”
“….I bought the top zip for myself in black and gold, which perfectly matches, well, everything I wear. I love this wallet. Every time I take it out, I’m delighted at the sight and feel of it – a testament to Shana’s thoughtful design and craftsmanship! True love :)”
“….I’d been having back pain and wanted to switch from a tote to a backpack but wanted something a little more formal for work. I ordered the Maxi online and I love it! It looks so great and is just the right size. My laptop fits perfectly and it’s saved my back. I get compliments on it all the time.”
“……I have purchased three Shana Luther bags — a tote, cross-body bag, and belt bag. They have great design without looking like everyone else’s. I can fit a ton of stuff in the tote (not surprising), and the cross-body and belt bags are great for carrying everyday essentials if you want to keep your hands free. The leather is substantial and of good quality. As a result, the bags have kept their shape and wear well….”
