TELFAR is a unisex line Est. in 2005 wuth the motto ” It’s not for you — it’s for everyone.” The Telfar Shopping Bag is made of vegan leather, branded with the signature “T” Telfar logo. This has been called an “it-bag” and “the decade’s most important accessory”.
Telfar is the brainchild of Telfar Clemens. He’s a Liberian-American fashion designer and winner of the 2017 CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, the CFDA American Accessories 2019, and the CFDA American Accessories 2020.
In November 2020, Oprah Winfrey picked the Telfar Bag as one of her ‘Favorite Things. The bag has sold out within minutes of every restock, with demand crashing the shop site. Telfar’s team was initially concerned that bots were buying the bags to resell them at a higher price, but concluded that the bot issue was overstated—the issue was real demand.
