Caraa was founded because the world lacked what we desperately needed: well-made, versatile and sleek bags and accessories for the modern life; a life that is constantly in transit. We create pieces that transition seamlessly with you from street to gym, office to airport, and everything in between.

Versatility

Your accessories must withstand the fast and complex pace of your day. As such, our luxury sports bags are designed to transition seamlessly from the fitness studio to the office to a night out, and everything in between.

Design

We incorporate premium leather, custom hardware, and handmade fabrics and incorporate them into sports bags, working with the same craftsmen used by the world’s leading luxury brands and design houses.
