About ChristineVonBun

Sales 36
On Etsy since 2008

Passionate about making beautiful handbags

I am originally from Vienna, Austria, where I earned a degree in Fashion Design and a Certification as a Master-Craftsman in Handbag Design.I have a deep respect for the tradition and craft of handbag design, which is why Christine VonBun bags are produced only on a small scale, with the sort of attention to detail that is otherwise lost in a sea of mass-manufacturing.

After beginning my career in Austria, at DeLaRue, I moved to Cape Town, South Africa to work for Cape Cobra. While there, she was struck by the exotic beauty of local leathers- ostrich, crocodile and lizard. The influence of my time in Africa can clearly be seen in my line of exotic skin bags, which introduce a variety of new materials to the North American handbag market.

I first showed my own collection of high end leather handbags at the Toronto “One of a Kind” christmas show 2005 - under my first label “Morris B”. A label I just revived with a brand new collection of Italian leather handbags.

I continued showing at the OOAK spring show until 2010. After that I went back to the cooperate world until a recent launch of my new Christine VonBun collection of ostrich and other exotic skin bags.

My vision has not changed - making bags that are aesthetically beautiful and functional, perfect in every detail and of course all handmade by herself in her Toronto studio!

Designed with passion - handmade to perfection - timelessly elegant
