Go ask Alice!

A beautiful bohemian style bag arrived today so thought it is about time introduce you to Go ask Alice, the Auckland based label who creates these leather beauties that you can buy in our shop.

The bags are handcrafted by the clever Emily Mahy. She sews her handbags from recycled leather jackets and also makes satchels and wallets from new leather. When using recycled leather Emily utilises the features and construction of leather jackets to produce beautifully designed individual pieces. We like it that each handbag comes with a picture of the original leather coat it was made of, it has a personal touch and makes you think if the jacket could talk, what stories would it tell about its previous life?
