Conceived in Paris, Designed in New York City, and Made in Italy — Harmin styles are inspired
by the wants and needs of today’s on-the-go lifestyles. We set out to bring people a new type of
luxury — one that’s streamlined, beautiful, practical, understated, and perhaps most importantly, that can really perform. We believe that high style and practicality should not be mutually exclusive, which is why you’ll find an array of highly-functional design details executed with only the finest materials.
BARBARA SWEET, FOUNDER
Barbara Sweet is a creative director and entrepreneur
specializing in luxury accessories. Her unrivaled expertise
in everything required to bring a nascent idea to a finished
product has led her to work with luxury fashion houses,
independent designers, and major international brands
alike. She was inspired to launch her own collection —
HARMIN — a portmanteau of her family names in 2020.
Barbara spends her time working in New York City, where
her son and his family also live; Paris, where her daughter
resides with her family; and in Tuscany, Italy, where
HARMIN bags are brought to life. She also dedicates much
of her time to Bisous for Léo, an ancillary arm of the
Meet, Harold, the HAR in HARMIN and the patriarch who passionately believed in putting family first. A businessman, artist, and world traveler — his appreciation of family, art, and culture, are present in every aspect of the brand. In the age of instant gratification and all fast everything, we are reminded by “Grandpa Har” to appreciate craftsmanship and handwork, and to remember that beauty —and art — are all around us. We hope our bags inspire you to explore the world and appreciate all the moments along the way.
Meet Mina, the MIN in HARMIN and the matriarch who instilled in her family some of the key tenets of the HARMIN brand; quality over quantity and style over labels. Born in Europe, Grandma “Min” believed in buying luxury that lasts — from home to fashion — she never made purchases based on trends or brands; simply quality, value, and, of course, good looks! Because of this, she handed down heritage pieces still being used (and loved) by the HARMIN family. With this in mind, we hope you enjoy your HARMIN bag and share it with your family for generations to come.
At HARMIN we pay homage to our heritage by combining the finer points of a slower time with the needs of today’s lifestyles. Made by artisans with attention to detail, the HARMIN collection uses luxe materials in simple easy-to-use shapes. The HARMIN style is ready to work (and play) as hard as you do.
At HARMIN, we believe the greatest luxury of all is time and not having to think too hard about looking great. And so, we set out to create timeless, understated statement pieces that celebrate the duality of modern but classic; chic yet practical. Each piece in the collection is meant to seamlessly integrate into your wardrobe and no-day-is-the-same lifestyle. This collection will work for you and look great doing it.
We also believe that buying luxury is akin to buying a piece of art. It should make you happy to look at and last a long time. For people who appreciate quality, craftsmanship, and luxury, this collection was conceived of in Paris, designed in New York and crafted in the hills of Tuscany.
Each HARMIN piece is numbered and signed by the founder. A gold-plated screwdriver is part of every strap set, a true functional heirloom. This fully customizable collection fits every need. We encourage you to craft your identity and make every HARMIN your own.
