Founder & Creative Director
Our desire is to create beautiful and functional handbags, that don’t break the bank, for modern women seeking distinctive style.
We know how busy life can be, whether you’re working full time, a new mum or starting university, you need an awesome bag by your side.
We are driven to create bags that appeal to every woman, every day; each collection featuring a range of classic accessories and statement styles in bold colours, animal prints and neutral tones. A trusted handbag or crossbody bag is an essential accessory in every woman’s wardrobe; it’s our vision that with great accessories we can help inspire women to feel organised, confident, and ready for the day.
"Our number one priority is about building culture, and that has become the biggest focus for our brand. We wanted to create a family atmosphere and we've ended up hiring staff who are like minded. They've got that family essence."
- Heidi Bailey, Founder & Creative Director
