Christine Vonbun's Profile

About

I have been passionate about handbags from a very early age and I was lucky enough to grow up in a country where handbag manufacturing is still considered a formal trade. After getting my design diploma and working in the field in Vienna for a while, I got the opportunity to go to South Africa to design ostrich and other exotic skin handbags. That was when it really started for me, I fell in love with ostrich and was amazed what you could do with that soft but hard wearing leather. From Cape Town to London where I was introduced to overseas production, not really my true passion....so I ended up in Toronto and it didn't take me long to figure out that I have to go back to what I love most, the design and manufacturing of high end handbags.
