Pop Bag was born in Tuscany, a region famous for its centuries-old tradition of creating the highest-quality leather bags. Produced in Florence, each Pop Bag is imbued with both the beauty of the region and the DNA of the local craftsmen whose unique and unparalleled workmanship ensures that each component of every Pop Bag reaches the highest standards.
But Pop Bag does more than simply provide high-quality handbags—we give you the ultimate design power. With four customizable components—a front, back, strap, and interior pouch—a choice of pebbled or saffiano leather, and a multitude of modern finishes for you to choose from, the possibilities for expression are endless. Pop Bag provides the materials, but the panels and pieces you select and the ways you customize your Pop Bag make each bag a reflection of your own unique style and personality.
Sara Lin was born in China, but Italy has been her home since she and her family moved to Milan when she was seven years old. Her love for Italian design comes naturally—while growing up in the world’s fashion capital, her father worked in the textiles industry and her mother owned a dressmaking company. Sara followed a similar path, though her interests always leaned toward handbag design. After college, she began working in the fashion industry, and eventually became a handbag designer for Valentino and Gucci.
In 2015 Sara created Pop Bag BY J&C—a first in customizable bags. With a playful, irreverent feel and a major focus on quality and craftsmanship, the Pop Bag store made its debut in Florence. Since then, the company has grown and expanded internationally. As Pop Bag’s Creative Director, Sara continues to revolutionize the bag world...one panel at a time. Every year, Sara and her team develop new finishes and create additional styles, sizes, and designs, making Pop Bag an ever-evolving brand.
Visit us at the iconic Time Warner Center right next to Central Park. Our freestanding store is one-of-a-kind (which we think is pretty fitting) since it’s the only kiosk in the center that’s not part of a chain. Of course you can always create your Pop Bag online, but we invite you to try the bags in person and customize your unique bag with the help of our knowledgable associates. Mix, match—make it your own.
