Obsessed with handbags? You're in the right place!

Hello and welcome to ANNIE ZORZO ACCESSORIES - my little part of the world and one that has a serious obsession with handbags!

Yes, it's true and I will confess - I love handbags! I love clothes, shoes, scarves and all sorts of jewellery too, but it is handbags that I can't have enough of. And after having sketchbook after sketchbook of handbag ideas, I decided to leave a career in Human Resources to pursue my passion of designing and making my own handbags. First-things-first was to learn how. Enter-in the London College of Fashion, exiting four years later with 1st Class Honours and the skills I needed to make my dream reality. I was now armed with the knowledge and skills to take my sketched designs, develop them into a pattern and then finally turning that 2D sketch into a 3D functional and desirable handbag, using the wonderful medium of leather.

But I also have another confession to make. . . I have a very serious obsession with fabric and textiles. Hard not to really when there is SO many gorgeous fabrics and textures out there and so many different ways to manipulate them. So now I get enormous satisfaction combining my two obsessions to create an eclectic collection of irresistible leather and fabric fashion bags.

There are two parts of what I do that I love most. First is that last stitch that goes into a bag that finishes the whole thing off. It is that very last stitch that finally makes that scribbled drawing with notes all over it, a real and tangible object. I still sit back, with every piece I finish, in amazement that "I did that"! My other great love in what I do is the joy and excitement my customers get when their order has arrived. While some customers purchase a ready-made bag, some of my others customers wait for months for a custom bag. I like to involve them through the whole process with swatch samples and photos, so they are taking the journey with me as their bag comes to life. For them to finally touch and feel their finished bag, and for me to feel their love for something I've created, makes me want to do it over and over again.

All of my products are proudly designed and handmade, with plenty of love and care, in my little studio on the Far North Coast of NSW. I'm not a factory and as I make all my items, my bags take time to come to life....I'm usually juggling a couple of custom orders at any one time, with ready-made bags and my little family thrown in there as well. Perfectionist tendencies have been my curse throughout life, and while some slight imperfections may exist in my creations, this is to be expected of something handmade. However, if I'm not happy with the finished product it doesn't go out... I want my customers to have the best of what I can create.

Thank you for visiting ANNIE ZORZO ACCESSORIES and for choosing to buy and support Australian handmade. Your support is truly invaluable!

With my warmest regards,

    While AZA is my passion, I spend my downtime with three gorgeous little people, and their very handsome daddy. I can't survive without coffee, my friends and my collection of handbags! I love colour and hockey and I'm cursed to be a perfectionist!

All of my products are proudly designed and handmade in Australia, with quality materials and plenty of love and care. I make an eclectic collection of desirable leather and fabric fashion bags, soft home accessories and some gorgeous lavender inspired products for relaxation. All the nice things in life that make for a thoughtful gift for that special someone or even yourself!! While some of my designs can be reproduced as you see them, others are a wonderful lucky-dip where you just tell me the colours and theme, I'll make you something that suits and you get a beautiful surprise in the mail!

I am a bit of a perfectionist (yes it's a curse sometimes) and take a lot of time and care when manufacturing each item. However as they are handmade and not mass produced in a factory there may be some imperfections which is to be expected. Where I am not satisfied with the finished product because of some imperfections, I sell these at reduced prices in my SAMPLES & SECONDS section and detailing the imperfections so you know what they are.

I've also taken great care in photographing each product the best I can in natural light. However, there may be some colour/contrast/brightness variations between different computer screens and the actual product. Please keep this in mind when you receive your purchase. Your satisfaction is very important to me, so if you do have any concerns with your purchased product, please message so I can resolve your concerns.

Additional policies and FAQs
I create a variety of products. Generally while I can re-create something I have made previously, I usually only make one at a time using a particular combination of leathers and fabrics. If you can't find exactly what you're after here, please be sure to go over to my other on-line store - - where you may find the colour combination you are searching for.

What I love about Custom and Bespoke orders is that I'm making something that I know you will love. But what is the difference between a custom and a bespoke order.

A Custom order is where you select your own leather and fabric, from what I have in stock or can source from my suppliers, for one of my standard designs. Custom Orders will usually take 3 weeks to complete and a 50% deposit is required, unless other arrangements (such as Lay-by) have been made.

A Bespoke order is where you have a specific bag in mind that requires me to completely design and sample a pattern to your specifications. Any alternations to an existing design is also a bespoke order as patterns require re-working. This is a lengthy process and can take 8 weeks or more. A Bespoke order sometimes does not have a final price until after the pattern and sampling is completed. A non-refundable Bespoke Fee of $50 is required for the pattern and sampling to be undertaken. After which a 50% deposit is required on the final product before it is commenced.

There are limited spots available for Custom and Bespoke Orders. Please contact me to discuss your requirements and book your spot

For both Custom and Bespoke orders, the balance owing on your item is required upon completion and before delivery is arranged. I reserve the right to on-sell the product to another party if the balance of payment has not been made despite repeated attempts to contact you.

I am happy to offer Lay-by on any of my products, or a combination of my products, whereby a purchase price + postage is of a value of $100 or above. A $5 Lay-by fee is charged for this service and a 20% deposit is required to secure the Lay-by. All Lay-bys require a payment every two weeks and the whole Lay-by period must not exceed 90 days. Please contact me for full terms & conditions if you are interested in this purchasing option on any of my products/combination of products.

On occasion Gift Vouchers will become available in set values of $50, $75 and $100. They are valid for 12 months from the date of purchase and other Terms and Conditions also apply. If there are none currently listed but you would like a voucher, please contact me.

I value my customers and nothing pleases me more than for you to be happy with your purchase so much that you come back to purchase again. As such I am pleased to offer returning customers a special Loyalty Reward code in order to receive discounts on a future purchases. This code is subject to the following terms and conditions:
1) Loyalty Rewards can only be redeemed on ready-made items.
2) Custom orders are not included in the Loyalty Rewards discounts.*
3) Loyalty Rewards are only available to previous AZA customers.
4) Orders received through the sharing of the Loyalty Reward code will be cancelled.
5) Orders received where the Loyalty Reward code has been applied incorrectly will be cancelled.

* Please note that I do not charge extra for custom orders. I am unable to offer the same Loyalty Rewards to previous customers on customs orders, due to the considerable amount extra time spent on custom orders.
