Since the launch of the first bag collection in spring-summer 2010, horsehair has been one of Akris' trademarks. The Ai bags have since become statement bags.
Horsehair is a noble material that is worked in with the highest expert craftsmanship. It requires a highly specialised skill to create dresses with horsehair, refined horsehair bags and small accessories. In today's industrial world of luxury, only a few experts have mastered this art. Choose your favourite horsehair fabric bag and pair it with our timeless Akris Architectural Bestsellers.
When Albert Kriemler chose horsehair for the first Ai bag, it was an unexpected fabric for luxury accessories. The material is unobtrusive, animal-friendly, resilient and particularly lightweight for travel. Because horsehair requires masterful craftsmanship to make, it is the epitome of delicacy and elegance. Horsehair is expressed in many details in the bags and accessories. Its lightness and sustainability discreetly represent a new era of handbag refinement. Discover how horsehair is celebrated in women's purses, card cases and key cases, while sending a message of graceful resilience.
Have you seen our iconic horsehair Ai bag by Akris? The Akris Ai bag is an exceptional accessory and fully lives up to Akris Creative Director Albert Kriemler's belief that "functionality is beautiful".
