About Handbags

Precious wood

The dynamism and exclusivity of Vistier handbags is emphasized by the use of handcrafted, raw wood. The handbag arises from this piece of wilderness. It grows and spreads into its final natural appearance. It’s a piece of art that you want to take with you, with one intention: to impress.

Smart Lighting

Vister handbags are not only gorgeous from the outside, but highly practical and unique on the inside as well. In each model, there is a light sewn in to make looking for items in the handbag much easier and faster.

Handcrafted and tailor–made

All components used for Vistier bags come from local suppliers. Working from a prototype, Mihal crafts the wood framework, then the cushioning. Then he fits the pieces together, tweaking and adjusting as he works. He fine–tunes every element. Each bag is an original. You will never see another woman with the same bag.

About Vistier

Vister was founded by Mihai Visternicean, a cabinet–maker born into a Moldovian family of craftsmen. He was blessed with artistic passions and has been nurtured and supported by his artistic family. He graduated in artistic wood carving. After his schooling, he developed his skills further at his father’s studio before starting work as a furniture restorer.

Taking part in several unique projects and with his endless love for wood, Mihai learned to mind the details and think of wood differently, not only as a material to produce furniture. Thus sprung the original idea to create a superb and elegant handbag. A handbag that gives you pleasure each time you see it. 

Mihai made first handbag as a birthday gift for his girlfriend. The idea of starting a business came a year later when Mihai got an offer to present his products at Czech Design Week. A month later, the Vistier company existed with its first three handbag prototypes.
