Of course, it's a korean bag brand, with its collection of women bags all designed and made in korea.
Similar bags in the market?
Sure, you might say that there are many similar bags in the market, sold in shopping malls and even can be bought cheaper online.
Yes, we agree. And we have bought and tried some of those too. They might be cheap, but they sure did not last as long as we wished for.
And also, they were aesthetically pleasing in pictures, but there is a certain thing to those bags which made friends go $10? when we asked them to guess the prices.
But what if we can get a korean style bag that looks korean-ish but not be too expensive?
Yes, it's definitely possible with the Donkie Korea bags.
Donkie Brand Story
Donkie is a women bag brand in Korea, and their tagline is "You are my precious guest (당신은 나의 귀한 손님)". The short form of this phrase sounds like the word Donkey, and is also the inspiration behind this brand name.
As with other bag brands, Donkie designs their own bags. But, unlike many other bag brands, Donkie also directly manages the factory that produces their bags.
Direct control of manufacturing process leads to cost effectiveness

To them, that translates to more control over the manufacturing process to ensure the bags of the highest quality are produced. With a direct control, it also allows them to produce bags with designs preferred by the public.
The cost effectiveness of this system is then passed on to end consumers as quality bags at affordable prices. No more paying for any middleman costs that do not directly translate to better bag quality!
Vegan leather bags with beautiful golden details
Donkie bags are all made with premium vegan leather. Also, they pay a lot of attention to details such as the inner lining of bags and also providing additional strap for the change of style.
Different straps are provided for the Donkie Sepium Bag. This one is in brown.
Note: the multicolor canvas strap has since changed into a mono black white strap from 2021 onwards.
