The elegant and functional "Altona", handmade fabric messenger shoulder bag is big enough for you to store all your things when going to your office, or to your studies, shopping or just hanging out in the night. It inspires me the big city, full of women rapidly going to their jobs and to their universities or schools. I can see this bag with Notebooks, journals, books, college blocks, etc, inside. All what modern women need for their daily life. That's why its named after one of the busiest areas in the big city of Hamburg.

Has a big front pocket below the outer flap ideal to store papers or folders (up to A4 / Letter size), magazines, books, or any other thing you need to store quickly without opening your zippered bag. Created by me inspired by an existing design.

This model has an extra and detachable adjustable strap to use your Altona bag as crossbody messenger bag whenever you want to.

I absolutely love my backpack: it's very feminine and unique, it's comfortable and it has room for everything. It took only one week to get to my place. Oh, its quality! The tiny little details and the fabric are to die for. Thanks Van!

Vanessa has conjured up a beautiful beach bag exactly according to my ideas with great attention to detail! I am totally thrilled because the bag is simply fantastic. It doesn't get any better than that. The bag is very cleanly sewn, was
lovingly packed and the delivery was also fast.
I love you! (The bag and Vanessa!)
Thank you, Gaby
