KATRE is a small design studio based in Manila, Philippines. It all began with a 15-piece collection of ready-to-wear pieces until it found its way to leather goods. Established in 2009, KATRE hopes to promote individuality in a stylish way. While everyone else is going mad about the latest IT bags, the KATRE customer simply wants to find luxury in quality.
KATRE exclusively designs and manufactures leather items under the KATRE label, including a unisex range called LEE ET CHASE ESSENTIELS. Each product is produced with the intent of defining luxury in the most unconventional way: magnifying the essential (using high-grade leather) and editing out the unnecessary (dispensing with big logos). The customer is guaranteed a well-thought-out design that is chic, timeless, and functional.
Each handcrafted KATRE product aims to exceed the customer’s expectations. That’s why our team takes up as much time as needed to create each product with pride and care. There are countless individual steps before a product is deemed ready, from designing and sampling to manufacturing and testing. At KATRE, we never force anything that just doesn't work.
