About Khelman


Ksenia Khelman

Khelman is a design studio focused on ladies' and unisex natural leather handbags, located in San Francisco, CA.


Our style is clear-lined cozy urban chic with a bohemian touch. All handbags exquisitely stand out and are self-sufficient, setting you apart from the crowd.


There is no assembly line here, no big factory. All handbags you see are individually crafted by Ksenia Khelman. She is an experienced leather artist who uses only the finest leather hides, high-quality hardware, top-notch skills, and special sewing machines for leather to make your bag dreams come true.


The studio deals only with natural materials: natural premium quality leather and suede, natural cotton, along with UV-resistant threads.


Khelman handbags age beautifully, looking even better with time. Ksenia herself scours the world for the most beautiful leather with rich texture, deep delicious color, fancy lining, and high-quality hardware. She enjoys giving the perfect outcome, and each handbag is the result of a precious selection of leather, lining, and hardware.


The time we are experiencing now is full of boho inspiration and profound chic. Join us.

Be bold. Be classy. It's time.

Designer, bagmaker and the soul of Khelman studio. 

She runs the show on all levels.
