Danish handbag brands cover a number of styles, from minimalist and sleek to colorful and playful; perhaps most of all, they are functional, as any good handbag should be. Many are made of leather, while a number of brands have started using recycled materials.
From evening bags to crossbody bags to shoulder bags to briefcases and many more, Danish handbag brands offer every item you need when you’re on the go.
Here are the Danish handbag brands to know:

Count how many you see whilst out in Copenhagen; they’re usually slung across the backs of young, fashionable people on bikes!
