Our Story

After working in Haute Couture and Ready-to-Wear in Copenhagen, London, Paris and Los Angeles, Founder and Creative Director Lulu Johansen Eschelman was inspired to combine a contemporary European aesthetic with her discerning eye for quality, timeless design and function to create a one-of-a-kind custom Handbag line. 

Acknowledging a gap in the market for hand made luxury handbags, Lulu applied her love for quality and uniqueness to LumillaMingus. All LumillaMingus bags are made in California which allows Lulu and her creative team to partake in every aspect of the creative process of crafting each and every bag.

Lulu designs for the contemporary woman with a strong focus on timeless designs, impeccable craftsmanship and quality, while never overlooking functionality.

Lulu strongly believes in quality over quantity and therefore only produces a limited amount of each style. We encourage our collectors to sign up with us in order to reserve a bag from our next collection.


A passion for the arts and belief in the importance of creativity moved Lulu to donate part of the proceeds from LumillaMingus to facilitate creative and healing programs for children and mothers in need. Welcome to our wonderful world of Beauty, Creativity and Inspiration.
