FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS.
What are your brand values?
Movement – Purpose – Discovery
Movement is at the heart of a traveling in the most literal way, but movement to us can be also be understood in an emotional sense “to be moved” or inspired, and the social sense of “joining a movement”. Our brand is a movement to inspire women to travel, and move towards the directions of their dreams and aspirations.
Purpose not only relates to functionality, which we always consider at the core of our designs, but also the mindset of our team. Our purpose is to serve and surprise – from the attention to detail in every design, our eclectic and innovative use of materials, and commitment to customer service – we are a purpose-driven team.
Discovery can result from a journey, but it can also be the motivation to take a journey. Discovery requires an engagement with your surroundings and experiences on an intellectual level. This is the key to inspiration and innovation in not only our lives, but also in our designs. As a brand, we seek to always discover new trends, materials, and shapes.
What is your sourcing and design philosophy?
We source partners based on quality, integrity, and innovation.
All our manufacturing partners undergo a rigorous auditing process that requires multiple in-person visits, interviews, and certifications. In order to ensure quality of goods, all our factories are required to conduct quality control tests in their in-house laboratories as well as submit goods to the leading third-party inspection team, InterTek before final delivery. For more information regarding InterTek, please visit: www.intertek.com.
Regarding our materials, we work with a family-owned and operated, Italian tannery. They have been supplying top-grade leather to the largest luxury brands around in the world. All our materials are custom made and developed specifically for Latitu° so exact colors and styles cannot be found anywhere else in the world.
How do you ensure quality?
Every product goes through three rounds of inspections – one test performed by the manufacturer’s quality control team, one test performed by a third-party inspection team, and a final test performed by our in-house Latitu° team before final delivery. The industry standard in the fashion industry is to have only one inspection test.
We are one of the few brands, who hold the highest standards – rejecting 99% of defects, 100% all critical, functional, and major defects.
Do you offer discounts, promotions, or seasonal sales?
All our products are priced so that as the customer, you can trust your items maintain its full value year after year. We do not slash prices on any items or sell them to discount retailers or outlets after each season, as typical of many other brands in the fashion industry. Instead, we implement tight inventory and limited production to maintain product quality, integrity, and lifetime value.

All Latitu° products are made with the highest quality, Italian crocodile-embossed leather. The leather is natural calf hide with no synthetic finishing. As a result, there will be slight variations in grain and color, making each leather good distinctly unique and personal.
Calf is a relatively strong leather but, as with all leather products, will require occasional maintenance. To care for and extend the life of your leather good, prevent exposure to direct light, heat, humidity, water, and oil-based substances.
Any loose dirt can be gently wiped with a soft damp cloth and dried immediately, away from direct heat. Excessive abrasion should be avoided as once the crocodile-embossed pattern becomes damaged or modified, it cannot be repaired. It is highly encouraged that when in doubt, leather goods should be brought to a professional cleaner.
Latitu° leather goods are designed to age gracefully, growing in character and charm with time. So sit back, relax, and enjoy the journey.
