What are the benefits of Anna?
Other than the awesomness you feel when you make it yourself her small size helps your prioritise the most important things for everyday. A stylish companion for coffee dates to buisness meetings, supermarket trolley filling to dress shopping. Adjust the strap length to fit you and go hands free with this versatile over the shoulder and cross body style.

What materials is Anna made of?
The back and top flap is a single piece of walnut veeneered MDF. We use a veneered product because it is less likely to warp and give greater longevity. The leather is full grain cow skin, custom made to our strict quality specifications and colour selection. We only use the best and this means the leather will develop a rich patina over time that is unique to you and how you use your bag. The thread used to stitch Anna together is 7 ply hand dyed waxed linen, unbeatable for strength and durability. Anna utilises the best brass hardware available.

Why is Anna called Anna?
Anna is an awesome friend, a fellow handmade business owner who we just seemed to click with. Now we meet for many coffees and a chat on a regular basis! Anna's handbag was a bit like Steve's wallet a tad under the weather! There were things she loved about it like the long strap but also things she wanted to change. Anna was telling me how hard it was for her to find someting that really respresented her, handmade with a strong eco ethos and some personality. Keeping Anna's fun and happy brief in mind we made wood bend and leather conform. This was one of those designs that when I held it in my hands I knew it was something really special.
