Needle vs Thread is all about beautiful and practical vegan bags, purses, homewares and accessories

Needle vs Thread is all about beautiful and practical bags, purses, homewares and accessories made by a girl who is just a little bit pedantic about making sure things are top-stitched, sewn straight, reinforced, centered, spaced evenly, and as perfect as she can get them!

That girl is Kirrily Walker, a graphic designer turned bag maker and seamstress who found her calling 10 years ago and has been working hard honing her skills ever since.

With industrial sewing machines and some serious determination, Kirrily wrangles fabric, vinyl and seatbelt webbing into bags, purses and accessories for all ages and lifestyles.

Needle vs Thread is based in the beautiful Blue Mountains in NSW, Australia.

All Needle vs Thread products are made entirely inhouse.

All Needle vs Thread products are vegan-friendly.

I usually ship 1-3 days after receipt of payment. Occasionally things come up and there may be a delay, in which case I will always let you know.

I ship from Australia, so please be aware of postage times and any customs issues specific to your country. Shipping from Aus to US/UK/Europe is usually only 1 week but can be up to 28 days. Other destinations may be a little longer. International customers are responsible for all fees (customs duties/taxes etc) associated with shipping to their respective countries.
