The Iconic "TT" logo is recognized as a symbol of luxury in bespoke leather and exotic handbags and accessories all over the world since it was trademarked in 2013.
This meaningful symbol unites the two T's of "Tribe of Two," while simultaneously forming the Roman numeral 2. It harmoniously symbolizes the importance of true partnerships and lifetime bonds, while paying homage to the belief that Two Hearts are better than one.
Handcrafted in a small family owned factory on the outskirts of Florence, our exotic handbags are designed to accommodate the lifestyle of today’s woman. Weighing in at less than 3 pounds, modeled with extra roomy handles to fit over coats and blazers, these bags are much more than pieces of fashion. The Urban Safaris by Tribe of Two are now equipped with interior lights that can be turned on and off from the inside which resulted in a nomination for the ACE Design awards.
Never compromise on fashion vs functionality again!
Tribe of Two represents the bond between Women, Loyalty & Lifetime Friendship. We believe that soul mates come in all colors, shapes and sizes and are best found by following your heart.
The Tribe begins here.
Jeannine modeled in Paris and Italy before starting a new life with her family in Italy. With an average of 22 Haute Couture shows out of 25 per season in Paris she now lends her grace and good fashion sense to the Tribe.
Sterling Victoria Laborie is half Native American and half French. Ever diligent in her quest for perfection, she was inaugurated partner of Tribe of Two in 2015.
Currently residing in Paris, she is a very talented amateur photographer and resident Tribal Chief of Sarcasm.

Brenda began designing for Tribe, after a long and distinguished career as a model and later general contractor and project manager. Native American by birth, Brenda was born in the US, and has lived in New York, LA, Paris, Milan and Tokyo. She is fluent in English, French, Italian and Japanese. Through her extensive travels she experienced a life where seemingly opposing cultures and traditions were able to exist in harmony.
With Tribe she blends the exotic with the classic - effortlessly combining the beautiful things she saw and dreamed about throughout her childhood and modeling career. Brenda's dream of creating Practical, Beautiful, and Affordable designs has gained her international recognition and her incorporation of lights in bags was nominated for the "ACE DESIGN AWARDS."
Thanks to her vast network of artisan friends and artists, each unique piece is produced using the highest quality materials and standards, reflecting Brenda's obsessive eye for detail and perfection.
Brenda is passionate about ALL women finding their inner beauty and strength, Life long friendships, and the right to follow their dreams.
Tribe is about making those dreams come true.
