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 a very cute crossbody purse but not easy to zip and unzip. Also not as flexible as I wanted when opened up. It is a very cute style. Had to return it.

My daughter did not like the stitching or size of the bag but the worst thing is that the bag was torn open at the stitching.

This is a beautiful and patriotic bag. The crochet detail is lovely and the bag is lined with a quality material. It is a perfect size... not too big and not too small. And, the strap drop is perfect for being able to carry comfortably on your shoulder. I have this USA version to my mom for her birthday and she absolutely loved it. Kudos to Sak on this one!

This is a fantastic bag and the crochet detail is lovely. I bought two different colors because I couldn't decide which one to give my mom for her birthday. Once I saw in person, I was able to choose... but, I'll be honest, I wanted to keep the second one for myself! I'm returning it though because I don't NEED it. This bag would be great on a vacation to the islands or the beach. It has a great summer vibe.

I am glad I ordered this purse! It is the perfect size. A lot of the bucket purses are usually too narrow or are abnormally deep. This purse has great pockets and plenty of places to put your phone which is what I wanted more than anything. The color is 'okay'. Not my favorite, but the style of the purse is perfect for me, so I will deal. There is a slight imperfection on the front pocket, but I don't want to take the time to send it back and wait for another. Overall this is a good quality purse and if you need something a tiny bit bigger than your regular crossbody purse, this is it.

This bag is beautiful, very soft, supple leather and the colors (black and brown) are gorgeous. I can see myself having and enjoying my new bag for many years. There is ample pockets and room inside and outside. The zippers are well made, and the straps are the perfect length for me. I’m very happy overall with my purchase.

This is a great style! The leather is great quality, and has held up for several years. I love the size of this bag, and the conveniently placed back slip pocket (that holds my phone perfectly.) My only complaint is that the lining sometimes gets caught on the zipper.

I loved this handbag! The color of butter cup at times looked butter cup yellow and it other times mustard yellow. So I ended up returning the bag. But I will buy it in a different color!

I absolutely loved this handbag! The color was the only downfall for me. At times it look at the beautiful Buttercup yellow and other times it appeared to be a mustard yellow. I will be looking to get this handbag in another color.

It's not a rich looking leather like my Fossil bag. Thinner leather than I thought it would be, especially for the price. Have gotten several compliments.

Be specific about your likes and dislikes. How was the fit and size? What does the material feel like? How awesome (or not) do you feel wearing them?Not bad news, As well, I’m keeping mine it has more assets than liabilities. The leather is good quality and has a nice size, eclectic.

My purse was recently snatched - a traumatic event, to say the least. In addition to losing the contents of wallet, I also mourned the loss of my purse, which I had had for many years and which I adored. I dreaded going out to look for a new purse, fearing I could never find anything I would love as much. Boy was I wrong!! when I saw this purse on the Zappos site, I instantly fell in love with it: the color and design (I got the tobacco with a beautiful embossing), the size and shape of it, and the pockets. All looked perfect! But when I received it it blew away even my high expectations! The leather is soft and supple. The color and embossed design are gorgeous! The size is just right: big enough to hold a book + all my necessities, without feeling too large. The outside pockets are super handy for storing my keys, phone and an extra face mask. I am on Cloud Nine with this purse, and it *almost* makes the theft of my previous purse worth it!

This is such a casual crossbody bag and I love it! I went from a SAK leather crossbody bag to this and there really is a difference in style and comfort. I have forgot I’m even carrying this at times. It’s spacious enough for all the things I need to carry such as my phone, emergency medication, sak wallet, coin purse, select makeup, and etc. and still have plenty of room. It’s not gaudy and ridiculously large either, it’s the perfect size!

I wanted to love this purse but the first thing I thought when I pulled it out of the box was “this feels and looks like something I could have gotten at Target for $30”. It’s very light weight, and the style is cute but the quality + feel didn’t match the price tag for me I tried to use it once to see if it would grow on me and the leather quickly and easily discolored from rubbing on clothes etc.
