Sisters launch handbags and accessories' brand

KALAMARIE is a New York and London-based handbags and accessories’ brand. We make our products from only the finest materials: Carefully sourced, lovingly treated, masterfully crafted.We are a team of two sisters, Melisa & Karen, who came up with the idea for this brand over lunch on a New York roof top restaurant. Both successful professionals, we had each been through the experience of departing from our loving family home to make our lives in foreign countries (Melisa in the US and Karen in the UK). We both felt the urge to create something beautiful and unique, like the city in which we were born, the ancient Calamarí, now Cartagena de Indias in Colombia, South America.

Our accessories are inspired by the colonial architecture of Cartagena. We took inspiration from Cartagena’s doorknockers to create our hardware and fused this idea with simple, clean lines and timeless design. Our handbags are lined in our signature, atlantic-blue, calf leather, giving that little extra intriguing factor to the interior.

We are delighted to have just launched our Holiday collection called Heritage. You may now shop it online at: www.kalamariehandbags.com. Register for our Newsletter and enjoy a 20% discount at the check-out point.


Here is a small selection of our small accessories, which would make beautiful gifts:

The Allie Mini Clutch is perfect for an evening out. It has all the charm of the Kalamarie larger handbags in one beautifully compact, envelope-style clutch.

The Rose Zipped purse is carefully designed to house everything you need in a purse. It has a zipped compartment, open compartment, card sleeves, pen holder, secret notes compartments, etc.

They say the best things come in small packages and the Cleo Mini Purse is the proof. It is a little purse designed to house your purse essentials. It has a zipped pocket, an open pocket, card sleeves and a key holder. It also has a rear external pocket for your Oyster card!
