Our ethos is simple - to design and create sustainable and responsibly made products with the environment in mind. We're not about trends, we make bags that will last throughout the years, that you'll turn to time and time again. Our focus is to create products with purpose, that go against our fast-fashion throwaway society.

Saving the planet one handbag at a time

Caring for our environment and working towards creating a better future is at the heart of our ethos, that's why all the leather we use is made from offcuts bound for landfill
