Each year, hundreds of independent designers from around the world submit their creative designs for the Annual Independent Handbag Designer Awards. These year we are proud to share that 2 of our designers made the cut!
Jess Rizzuti (seen to the left above) is nominated for her third year in a row for the prestigious award for Best Green Handbag at the Independent Handbag Designer Awards sponsored by InStyle. Jess's cork design incorporates Eco-friendly materials and production methods. The brand reflects a deep appreciation not only for creativity and fashion, but for ethical practices and our planet as a whole.
Mary Lai is nominated for her designs inspired by the graphic elements found in New York City’s architecture. "Shapes from buildings, streets, and even a chessboard in Union Square inspired me to try a gridlock pattern for this bag.”
In addition to being finalists, the design also earns each designer a place in the Fan Favorite category which is open to the public to vote. Congrats and we wish our designers the best!
