Handbags without the animal cruelty, pollution and toxic chemical exposure of the leather industry

The maker of these exquisite handbags started out in the fashion industry. Interested in a variety of creative pursuits such as ceramics and weaving, she was always attending workshops to learn new techniques. To that end, she spent a year of Saturdays studying hand leather work in San Francisco under Hermès master artisan Beatrice Amblard.

She loved the work, but the animal cruelty and negative environmental impact of leatherwork started getting to her. She decided it was time to take her new skills and strike out on her own. She sees a lot of potential in the world of vegan leather and accessories and has started making her own impact with these stunning and long-lasting handbags.
