At LUC8K, we do things differently. Like you, most people on the planet believe that sustainable luxury is the only way to go. The founder and President, Karen Olivo, shares this vision with all her heart and soul.
Let’s face it, traditional leather tanning is an environmentally harmful process. However, all our world class, custom made LUC8K leather bags and accessories are made using sustainable practices throughout the entire process, right down to the packaging. Karen has created a blueprint for how all handbags and accessories should be made and sold from now on, and we hope you love them as much as our loyal followers do.
We care about quality and sustainability.
The average fashionista owns seven handbags. That’s a lot of bags and not good for one’s carbon footprint. LUC8K seeks to offset this by setting new standards in luxury style. The leather in all our high-quality bags and accessories is responsibly and sustainably sourced, so you can look good and feel good whilst doing your bit for the planet.
The leather used for LUC8K bags and accessories is made of “Bull Poney premium grade” hide from the French Basque region. The leathers are mineral tanned and vegetable re-tanned. Colours are drum-dyed from a tannery whose processes are sustainable.
We handcraft in France, and our luxury leather has a light grain which is soft to the touch. That allows your custom-made leather bags and accessories to uphold their integrity and grow even more beautiful over time.
Functional, beautiful & fierce: who is leading the fight for sustainable business?

Karen has 23 years’ experience in sustainable international business practices. She has advised the CEOs and PR executives of many leading global organizations on sustainability matters. With her expertise in this field, she decided to go her own way and create sustainable style that embodies her devotion to creating a better world for everyone.

Lucky Number 8
we believe that a little LUC8K goes a long way. Eight is a lucky number and when turned on its side, it transforms into the infinity symbol. To us, it reflects the process of achieving harmony within a community of unique individuals.
You can add this symbolic statement to our custom-made leather
accessories and we can even provide you with an infinity sign belt buckle to complete your look.
