The Common Knowledge is an accessories brand that, simply put, makes really good bags. It’s been around for a minute — founder Zara Dramov launched the line in 2014 — and has received a steady stream of buzz over the past two-plus years.
Another thing that hasn’t changed since its debut is the quality: Dramov’s signature shapes are all architectural in nature, which means that they look clean and crisp, but more importantly, work with your actual body. For example, the Prism Drawstring Bag is flat on one side, so it rests naturally against your hip in a way that most bucket-bag styles can’t (no weird bumping against your butt!).
