You're Gonna Wanna Bag-It

Editor Picks: "IT" bags

As I sail through instagram inducing carpal tunnel on an endless thumb scroll, I've come across and come to love a few accessory brands. Finding just the right bag takes more work than meets the eye. It's finding the right size, color, texture, interest, practicality and durability. I've been that girl with the overstuffed tote bag in college gliding through the halls as my textbooks dropped out the bottom.


With genuine materials and intricacy it's not hard to see these craftsmen are geniuses, in their field. Functionality, yes- but the colors and textures make these pieces the "focus piece," of the whole look.

Bringing together skilled artisans is something I always look for and respect in brands.

Mirta is a great model in this practice.

Searching for the best unseen Italian makers, to unveil their creations. 

Mirta provides an environment for small Artisans with opportunity in scale to compete with the giants of the industry, through marketing tools and logistic support.

Unique and versatile these pieces are perfect for accessorizing.

Enabling you to throw on a white blouse, cream trousers with a nude mule or pump for clean chic lines enhanced with a pop or texture and color.

If I've learned anything from my taste it's that I am innately and intrinsically drawn to Australian goods, from interior decor, to apparel and accessories. DeLaViktoria is no exception. Handmade leather bags designed to a simple aesthetic

Made in the Australian Alps.

I've held a long time obsession with St. Agni. Once again hailing from Australia; their woven pieces and clean fresh vision is constantly re-inviting back for more. Known for their woven footwear, but branching out in more options and pieces with unparalleled quality this company doesn't let their growth water down their product.

St. Agni pays special homage and cherishes the handmade process, the art and creation that goes into each pair and the personal element involved. Hand made footwear is a slow process taking up to 10 hours to make on pair.
