At Silver & Riley, innovation and quality are at the core of everything we do. Each item is carefully crafted by our masterful artisans using premium quality materials. Our bags are designed to elevate any style profile, with rich hues and impeccable attention to detail. As a luxury brand, we prioritize using top-of-the-line materials to create our products. This is a non-negotiable for us, as we believe that quality is essential to providing the best possible experience. Our bags feature:
- Premium full-grain calf or cowhide leather
- Leather that matures elegantly, acquiring a rich patina over time
- High-grade metal accessories from top-tier suppliers
We launched in late 2019 inspired by a sense of possibility and a desire to make moving around more seamless and enjoyable. Our founder envisioned a luxury travel and accessories company that blends functionality with style seamlessly to fill the void in the market that seemed to lack products that were both aesthetically pleasing and practical. She conducted extensive market research and leaned in on focus groups to identify preferences and common challenges. Then the search for skilled artisans led to Italy, where excellence and quality are core values, and sustainability is prioritized. 136 rejections and closed doors later, Silver & Riley was born.
Today, our products are meticulously crafted in the Tuscan region of Italy and we pay particular attention to detail and customer intimacy throughout the entire process. Most of our items are also designed to be multifunctional offering maximum utility and exceptional value so you can always get the most bang for your buck.
About the Founder and Designer
Woman, entrepreneur, global citizen, strategist and philanthropist are just a few ways to describe my multifaceted identity. My passion for people, the world, giving back, and pursuing dreams led me to launch Silver & Riley.
As a global citizen, I've traveled to over 100 countries, fully immersing myself in various cultures and ways of life. From the streets of New York, Lagos and Milan, to the shores of Rio de Janeiro, Honolulu and Okinawa and the hills of Auckland, San Francisco and Valparaíso, I continue to study diligently and soak up the best of various cultures and street fashion.
I'm a lifelong learner and have earned a BS in Materials Engineering and Mathematics from Rutgers University, a MS in Financial Engineering from New York University (NYU), and a MBA in Strategy, Finance and Decision Sciences from Emory University. I have also studied at business schools around the world including (FGV) Rio (Brazil), (WHU) Koblenz (Germany), (RSM) Erasmus (Netherlands), The London School of Economics and (SDA) Bocconi (Italy).
What's in a name?
Silver & Riley honors my late mother, a skilled entrepreneur who ran several businesses including a jewelry business. She often adorned my siblings and I in beautiful gold pieces, but I preferred silver, inspiring her special nickname for me. Nearly two decades since her passing, the name Silver & Riley carries her memory and brand principles.
Her influence extends beyond the name, as I apply the customer intimacy lessons I learned from her, striving to make each customer feel valued and important. I truly consider our community family and always strive to go above and beyond to serve.
I hope you appreciate the passion, dedication, and care infused into every aspect of our brand. Thank you for choosing us!
