About

One-of-a-kind handbags handmade from recycled leather and suede clothing. Inspired by a love for life and our planet.

Tannis is a teacher, artist, fashion designer, nature and animal lover, and a passionate supporter of Human, Environmental and Animal Rights. She holds two specialized degrees in both Fine Arts and Art & Design Education, and has taught Fine Arts, Sewing and Fashion Design for over 18 years. Her mom is a renowned artist who inspired her artistic ability, and Tannis has been designing, creating and sewing from the time she was a little girl.

Tannis started designing and making handbags because she has a passion for unique, well-crafted fashion. She was never content with a generic factory made bag and loves the authenticity of a beautifully hand constructed, one-of-a-kind design made from earthy organic materials like leather and suede. An original handbag makes an outfit!

Passionate about conservation, she is an advocate for recycling, and finds beauty in aged and worn leather. She reconstructs salvaged leather clothing in to glamorous one of a kind handbags, leaving little added footprint on our irreplaceable planet.

Frequently asked questions

Wholesale availability

If you are interested in wholesaling my designs, please contact me and we can discuss your ideas. Thank you!

Care instructions

All leather handbags are treated with weather proofing leather polish before shipping. You can care for your handbag in the same manner by periodically applying leather shoe polish to help keep the leather supple and water resistant. Suede bags are treated with weather proofing leather spray for suede.

When packaged for shipping, the leather fringe on each bag is carefully placed to prevent as much creasing as possible during shipment. When you unpack your bag, shake out the fringe. If it is wrinkled or creased, simply hold the fringe under a water tap or soak it with a damp cloth until the fringe is dampened. Then lay it out and with your fingers, smooth the fringe flat. Then hang to dry.

Shipping

I do my very best to package and ship items within a day of your order. This is dependent on my teaching schedule, but I love to have your item off to you as soon as possible. I will send you an email to let you know it has shipped so that you have an estimated time of arrival. I know how much I love having an item I purchase shipped to me immediately so that I receive it quickly and I want the same for you! Thank you :-)

Cancelling an order

If you change your mind after placing your order, I have set the time to cancel to within 6 hours, simply because I may actually package and ship your item that day! However, if after you order you think you may need longer than 6 hours to decide, just please send me a message and I will make sure that I do not package your item for shipping until I hear confirmation from you within a day (24 hours) that you are not cancelling it! I know how life can be, and sometimes we change our minds. :-)

Placing an item on hold

If you like an item but are not 100% certain you would like to buy it, please send me a message and I can place it on hold for 24 hours for you. If for some reason you need longer than this to decide, just let me know and we can discuss the length of hold time through our messages. Thank you!
