daph. is a St. Louis-based fashion and lifestyle brand for women that features handmade clothing, handbags and accessories inspired by the unique artistry, craftsmanship and materials of Peru.

Designed by Peru native and St. Louisan Daphne Benzaquen, our handbags and clothing are created to be timeless and standout pieces, providing high-quality elegance and versatility at an approachable price point.

We value quality over quantity, which is why we handcraft each of our items using durable and sustainable Peruvian resources. This approach also helps us create each piece with minimal environmental impact.

We work with manufacturers who adhere to environmentally safe practices, create minimal waste, and implement our creative designs to maximize the resources’ potential.

daph. is committed to giving back, and we donate a portion of all sales to support children and families in need in Peru. Whether a woman carries a daph. llama-leather clutch or wears our super-soft alpaca fleece, she is helping the communities in Peru where our pieces are ethically, thoughtfully made.
