Founded by Amy and Jason Richter, Lug is a line of textured, patterned, and quilted bags and handbags, designed for function. The bags within the collection range from quilted belt bags to rolling carry-on luggage, and most come complete with secure pockets and compartments with travel in mind.
"It's important for me to celebrate my Asian heritage through design," says cofounder Amy Richter. The brand was founded in 2005, and after a stint on Oprah's O List joined QVC as a retailer in 2015. The bags have hundreds of five-star reviews, from the beloved convertible RFID crossbody bag in a variety of patterns, from polka dot to floral, to a mini cosmetic case with over 600 five-star reviews. Reviewers noted that they loved the organization the bags offered, and many reviewers of the cosmetic cases noted that they loved that the fabric was washable.
