The main highlight is the bag’s clever carrying concept: its adjustable handles allow the TwinBag to be worn as either a handbag or a shoulder bag. The German luxury brand’s first handbag rounds off its fashion and lifestyle range for women.

Italian craftsmanship shines through in every detail of the TwinBag, making it a true masterpiece. Produced from a single piece of calf leather, the bag is painstakingly stitched by hand in an intricate production process.

Its Italian production ensures the finest workmanship and particular attention to detail – the handbag benefits from knowledge and tradition passed down through generations of Florentine craft workers.

The Porsche Design TwinBag is one of the most exclusive bags around this season. Premium quality was a key focus in the selection of materials. The leather is tanned using an ecological process, the lining is made from soft Alcantara and the metal fittings are finished using an elaborate electroplating procedure.

After vegetable tanning, the selected leather varieties – exclusive ostrich leather, elegant crocodile leather and modern calf leather – are processed with the highest precision and utmost attention to quality.

An elaborate electroplating process is used to produce six different finishes for the timeless metal fittings which are then polished by hand. The fittings are made from precious metals, such as gold, white gold, rose gold, matt gold, silver and chrome.

Featuring a two-way zip for easy access, the interior of the TwinBag is designed with functionality in mind: it is roomy enough to hold DIN A4-size documents and a 13-inch laptop.
