Borisha's mission is to bring a piece of luxury and style into the lives of our customers with handmade leather goods.
The idea for opening an online shop for handbags began with a love story and two unforgettable trips to the Western Balkans.
Freshly in love, I went with my girlfriend to her beautiful homeland Montenegro to spend a few days on the Adriatic Sea.
In Montenegro I was impressed how elegantly the women were dressed and how they combined their outfits with very stylish handbags. Handbags in a design I had never seen in Western Europe.
Some time later there was a romantic weekend in Belgrade. Different city and different experience, but the same picture: elegantly dressed ladies with exceptionally chic handbags.
Then it became clear to me what I should do: find out which brand these exceptional handbags are from and set up an online shop.
That's how I met the brand "The Manual Co."
After many e-mails, phone calls and an on-site visit to The Manual Co. in Novi Sad, Serbia, we reached an agreement and I was soon able to receive the first delivery of exceptional handbags and purses in Weil am Rhein, Germany.
My girlfriend has become my partner in life and I thank her from the bottom of my heart for the great support in setting up and running the online shop.
