Founded in 1931 in New York by Herbert Bienen and Edwin Davis, Bienen-Davis was an eminent maker of fine leather handbags in an era when Paris was still the epicenter of fashion and luxury goods. These handbags are so expertly designed and constructed that they have always been a reference in the handbag world of fashion.

Many celebrities go for Bienen Davis handbags for their most special occasions, such is the case of Zendaya, wearing it in her past Homecoming dance.
