Hello there!

More About Designer

Hello, my name is Jurgita. I have traveled and lived all over Europe. In all of my travels, there was one place that stood out from all the rest: Turkey, the crossroads of Europe and Asia. For the last six years before coming to the US, I lived in Istanbul, Turkey, where the first bag of JURGI was born. I am a curious, self-motivated designer, Lithuanian-born, passionate about comfortable, slightly different, long-lasting fashion. Istanbul and its people welcomed me, even as I couldn't speak a word of Turkish the first year. The Turkish people's dedication to what they do and the quality of their workmanship inspired me. When I decided to start my brand, I knew Istanbul was precisely where to realize my dreams of creating JURGI designs!

All the best, Jurgita

Who We Are?

Turkish Craftsmanship

Each JURGI product is entirely handcrafted — from start to finish — by our partner atelier in Istanbul, Turkey. For over 45 years, this family-owned company has carried on a tradition of impeccable craftsmanship.

Less than ten people are involved in the entire production process for JURGI creations. We are proud that each team member has worked at the atelier for nearly 2 decades and is paid a living wage.


JURGI’s creations are a result of intense attention to detail and a dedication to great quality. Created with genuine materials and hardware that can withstand the rigors of daily life, a JURGI bag is made to last. Quality is not only a question of materials used but every piece of the production process. For this reason, our partner atelier is compliant with local environmental and safety regulations and regularly inspected by an outside work safety company approved by the Turkish government.

The “It” Factor

We all know style when we see it. . . a kind gesture, an expression of gratitude, or (of course) a spectacular bag. We believe that JURGI’s bags — classic, yet slightly different — can uniquely reflect your own individual style.

Only available in limited quantities, you’re sure to turn heads with an authentic handmade leather JURGI bag, no matter the situation.
