About Us.

Actë Nation is a female-run, digital handbag brand that investigates the common bag-related problems modern women face, and designs a range of products to solve them. We take style seriously, but form always follows function first.

Our bags are made for real life, and we’re in constant conversation with our customers to learn what features suck and which ones can be improved or added to better meet daily demands.

About

But we don’t just aim to make more efficient handbags. It’s our mission to create solutions that make your life easier and more effortless than ever before. Because, your handbag should complement your outfit and your busy schedule.

We’re here to help you express your best, kick-ass selves with products that tick multiple boxes. This is our obsessive passion.

Why Actë Nation?

The handbags we so crucially rely upon to carry our busy lives around can be cute and helpful one minute, and embarrassingly bad the next. But when we’re aiming for greater things in life, achieve our goals — or simply get from work to yoga to dinner date in one composed piece — we simply don’t have time for added stress or inconvenience.

We asked ourselves one question: “Will we ever find a brand that has everything we need and love about handbags, without the things we don’t—a brand that just gets us?”

Actë Nation was born out of this very idea. That no woman should be held back by her handbag. Not by size, not by style, not by lipstick-eating pockets or shoulder-digging straps.

Actë Nation helps you unleash your unique superpowers by combining functional designs with modern shapes.

Our Design Mission

Traditional brands tend to cut corners and compromise designs—removing functionalities, pockets, materials—all for the sake of increasing margins. What you end up with is something that looks nice, but isn’t necessarily functional, practical or even wearable in everyday life.

We get you, we are you. And we rebel against designs
that slow us down.

We’re obsessively passionate about creating products that solve your daily bag-related problems and bring more efficiency to your life. Every solution we create is the outcome of countless conversations, handbag-contents-dumped-onto-countertops, prototypes, and real-life testing. If a design isn’t practical enough, or doesn’t fulfil one or multiple essential functions, we simply won’t bring it to market.

In other words… we say no to black-hole bags and YES to
those that keep us organised and our essentials handy.

The founding idea for Actë Nation was born in Luxembourg. The designs were sketched in major cities all over the world, in close conversation with amazing, go-getter women who were kind enough to let us peek inside their handbags. And then, we searched the world for an entire year before finding the perfect partner in the mountains of Spain to help us bring Actë Nation to life.

Each Actë Nation product is meticulously handmade by a generations old, female and family run leather manufacturer that works with luxury brands from around the world. The entire process, from prototyping to end production, is 100% made in Spain. And the majority of the materials are sourced from Europé - this helps us ensure that our materials are compliant with the EU’s REACH environmental regulations, plus keep travel distances to a minimum.
