WE ARE FOND OF LIFE.
Every BOCUS has a story. All are limited edition made of cow leather. Born from our admiration for life, they are expressions of its diversity, movement and beauty. Life is a purposeful and colorful mix. We aim to be that too.
WE COUNT ON LIFE.
We are a slow-fashion, sustainable business. We support local craftmanship. our handbags are handmade in Spain, in a leather specialized atelier. It is a small team of artisans in a cottage industry, that has made a living crafting leathers and leather goods since The Middle Ages. All our leathers are a bi-product in the human food chain and follow EU legislation, in the use of the most ecological dyes and procedures. Our feathers are cruelty free.
MIXING COLORS, PATTERNS AND TEXTURES IS AT OUR CREATIVE CORE.
At BOCUS, each collection creative process starts with a feeling, a thought or a vision. We curate a large variety of high quality, colorful pieces of leather and trimmings that align with these. Then we do different combinations, until we materialize the initial impulse, that comes alive in a poetic story: Amazing Stories in Color and Texture.
THE RESULT IS QUALITY, UNIQUENESS AND EXPRESSION.
Our skillful leather artisans, then work at their own pace, obtaining the highest quality finish.
These values, materials and skillful work result in the most unique, high quality pieces. Praised for their special glamour, their fun sophistication and their positivity, BOCUS handbags are impacting the way fashion serves us, as a tool to enjoy and express ourselves.

How did Bocus start?
Sandra Bienert, founder of BOCUS answers:
I consider myself a builder, so I am always busy and never bored. Most of the times with my mind at full speed, and my emotions not very far. My three boys were not babies anymore and I was ready to become an entrepreneur.
I have always loved finding cute unique things in the most particular stores, everywhere I go. One day I was wandering at a street market in a little village in Spain, my country of origin. A colorful spot caught my attention: A lady was selling handbags made of several leather pieces and decorations. She would take orders to customize handbags. I started trying different combinations of leather pieces and decorations, and couldn't stop. I was having a blast! I loved the combinations I was creating. They were gorgeous, original and expressive. I realized that more people would have to feel the same way, that there was an opportunity. I had been raised amongst high end products and fashion, as my mother had had a successful fashion business for over 40 years. Also my background was in marketing and this was a unique product. It all made sense and I had the passion and the strength to do it. So, I started BOCUS!
