The Brand

At même bête…, we focus on providing luxury leather bags that are both practical and fashionable. All items are handmade with precision in St. Lucia, to offer you the best quality and finishing. We work with many different types of traditional cloths such as African wax print and madras, and combine them with the finest of leather. Variations in colour and shading are natural to the leather and are not flaws, but should be considered part of the unique beauty of each piece.

The company currently operates out of a small workshop in St. Lucia in the Caribbean where lunch hours are typically spent on the beach.

même bête…, aims to put St. Lucia on the map as a viable contributor to the global fashion industry.

The Owner

Taribba do Nascimento is a St. Lucian designer, loving mother, nagging wife and lover of all things creative. She fell in love with the art of leathercraft while living in Ethiopia. She has since trained in Florence, Italy where she refined her skills while attempting to taste every flavour of gelato the city had to offer.
