About Us

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.

Our Story 

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.

We use vegan, cactus leather, one of the most sustainable and durable alternative leather options available on the market. Though not yet 100% organic, our plant-based leather helps to prevent hundreds of unnecessary animal deaths per year.We are committed to elevating luxury to ethical standards, by bringing together Mexican artisanship and quality vegan leather.



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.
