The Sak

The Sak Logo
The Sak is a casual, California-cool lifestyle collection of hand-crafted crochet and textured leather bags, footwear, hats, scarves, belts, media accessories, travel and jewelry.

Friends from childhood, Mark Talucci and Todd Elliott both grew up overseas. Their love for finding and importing unique textiles was drawn from going to local hippie fairs in places like Brazil and Mexico, where Mark lived most of childhood. Both unenthused by their lackluster corporate jobs after college, Mark and Todd found inspiration during a trip to Bali, Indonesia in 1989 where they were intrigued by the extraordinary objects and artisan fabrics they discovered. Both natural entrepreneurs, Mark with a degree in engineering and Todd in business administration, they decided to start a business importing these "found treasures" from overseas to their hometown in San Francisco.

In 1994, the imported rattan bags were blowing off shelves at major retailers encouraging Mark and Todd to go a step further. The idea for The Sak brand stemmed from a simple, memorable, casual and relaxed bag with universal appeal. Staying true to texture, they created a singular bag from a unique Tightweave™ fabrication using hand-crocheted nylon string. Starting a crochet "craze," The Sak bag Style 120 was an overnight hit. It soon became one the most coveted items of the 90s coining the phrase "a Sak on every back."

This is my 3rd Sak leather bag. This is no where the quality of the other two. I really wanted to love this bag. The leather is thin, not soft, and almost like it isn’t properly finished on the sides - the parts that are not embossed. I love the size of it and everything except the quality of the leather. There is no way this is the Sak leather quality I am used to.

I ordered the silver pair as a birthday gift for my sister. She loved them and wore them right away. My only issue was with the packaging. They were not fastened to the card and the backs were loose in the box...not connected to earrings, and were damaged in shipping. Luckily, I had a couple of silver disc backs in my jewelry drawer that matched and fit well on the earrings so I traded them out. You shouldn’t have to do that with a new pair of earrings.

This would have been cute if the strap matched the bag. The cloth strap really looked tacky.

This purse is well constructed and well designed. Nice quality leather and light colored interior lining makes it easy to find what you're looking for. The only thing I didn't like was the tassle fob, but that was easily removed.

I love the bag, if only the handle was two inches longer. I am not fond of a bag hanging at my waist, while rather at my hips. Also, although I love the styles “The Sak” offers, their name seems prominent on the bag which I don’t like. Just my opinion.

This is a great bag. I have it in another color scheme and it's perfect for travel. I didn't keep this bag because I expected the blue to be a denim blue but the color is much brighter in person and I wanted something more muted. The pictures on my computer don't show the color accurately.

I love my new card wallet! It’s so slim it takes up next to zero space in my purse, yet it is convenient and holds everything you expect a wallet to hold. I switched from a clutch wallet to this and I’m not looking back.

Very cute and convenient. Not much room to carry anything except for phone, cards, and cash. I usually carry lipstick and my car key with me and they both made the bag hard to close.

Perfect for a trip I took to Europe. I needed something crossbody that zipped closed to prevent easy theft/pick pocketing during my travel. It was the perfect size for walking around all day with enough room for the essentials without being bulky/heavy.

Lovely bag, great leather and lining, just a bit too small for my purposes. Based on past experience, I’d wager this bag will be durable and functional for years and years.
