Lunar Method is made up of a multi-talented passionate group of travelers and artisans from around the globe. The LM team uniquely combines vegan leather and handmade textiles from artisan women in Mexico to create durable luxury bags, designed by women who travel, for women who travel.
Beyond travel bags, Lunar Method tells a story. With beautiful fabrics, sourced directly from Mexican artisan women, and cruelty-free cactus leather, we advocate two important issues: women’s rights and animal rights. We honor the work and dedication women artisans put into making our linings, by providing them with a fair wage and job security.
Message from the Founder
Welcome! I'm Karine, founder of Lunar Method. Raised in Los Angeles by a Brazilian mom and Ecuadorian dad, culture, travel, and design are huge parts of my life. Lunar Method is the intersection of femininity, conscious living, and travel.
Growing up in a low-income immigrant neighborhood, it was the support of the amazing women in my life who encouraged me to get an education, graduate from UC Berkeley, and start my own business. It's my purpose and passion to give back to underserved communities, especially creating opportunities for young girls and women who, I believe, can change the world.
