Recently, a friend who works as a travel guide went down to Chile during the earthquake period with his tour group. His advice to keep them safe in case something should happen: wear your comfortable decent clothes in bed and have flip flops/croc at the end of the bed. Jeanne Lottie thought: Why not a flight bag with all your emergency needs on your bedside table?
We’re happy to report that everyone on the Chilean trip got home safe and sound. But it made us wonder: what would we take with us in an emergency situation? Here’s a list we came up with: ID, credit card, some cash, glasses, and cell phone. So we designed a bag to fit all the essentials in case you need to pick up quickly and go. Great for emergencies (knock on wood!), and perfect for travel.
This light and durable bag is available in black, dark brown and light brown.
Jeanne Lottie Flight Bag is priced at $65. Now on sale for $40.
True Happiness is…having the essentials.

Denim is big this season, and Jeanne Lottie loves it! Clothing designers are showing head-to-toe denim, but that may not be for everybody. If you’re looking for a way to work a little more denim into your wardrobe, but are wary of the full denim suit, check out our new summer denim bags.
Studded with crystals, and chain-link, these washed denim bags feel like silk to the touch. Jeanne Lottie’s denim bags are available in hobo and satchel shapes.
Summer shouldn’t be fussy. Here’s a casual, easy bag for the season.
Available at selected stores and online starting May.
Priced at $65.

Tiny, precious, Itsy bitsy teenie weenie
boxy golden clutch, it’s mini!
Small and precious is our new Gold Box Clutch. Apparently we’re not the only thinking small this season. Moschino also has a glamorous gold box bag like ours this season? Do we have the same muse? Or is it telepathy? The beautiful box proves that great minds think alike!
Great for special occasions when you’ll only need the necessities: cash, card, keys, and lipstick, of course. As with so many things in life, small is beautiful. It’s at the heart of Jeanne Lottie’s philosophy. If you’ve got photographic evidence of how small is beautiful in your life, send them our way at firstname.lastname@example.org. We may post them on our blog for the future.

Jeanne Lottie was born 25 years ago through the ambition of two sisters in their twenties. They dreamed of a way to spread the philosophy of true happiness, in whatever form it meant to women: independence, health, or self-expression through fashion. In Chinese, True Happiness is called Jun Lok Tai. Through the products we’ve designed for strong women, it brings us True Happiness to say that we’ve been doing this work for a quarter century. We see ourselves as more than a handbag company. We are proud to create handbags and accessories that bring some joy to the lives of women.
As it’s our birthday today, we’d like to invite you to celebrate with us. From April 1st to April 30th, all handbags are 50% off through our online store – no joke! To take advantage of our special anniversary discount, send us your orders by e-mail to Yorkville@jeannelottie.com and we’ll honour our anniversary promotion.
Thank you for your support throughout the years.
It’s been 25 years of sibling rivalry, love, and inspiration that have fueled the designs that we’ve put out over the years. We’re looking forward to many more.
Happy Anniversary from the team at Jeanne Lottie!
