AT OUR CORE

VEGAN AND CRUELTY FREE

Our STORY started with a mindful objective: to offer kinder alternatives to leather bags, while staying true to timeless, contemporary style.

OUR STORY

HOW WE STARTED

With difficulty finding contemporary yet vegan bags to fit in with our vegetarian lifestyle, we set out on a mission to give the conscious-minded an alternative to leather handbags. 

The brand is inspired by women who have impacted our lives, mothers, grandmothers, sisters and friends,  STORY 81 designs honour their effortless, empowering style in a contemporary way. 

OUR PHILOSOPHY

FEWER BUT BETTER

Each and every one of our bags embraces the concept of slow, timeless fashion and is crafted to effortlessly integrate into your wardrobe, without the feeling of guilt.  With a fewer but better philosophy, each piece is made with integrity and kindness from the highest-quality materials, and created by skilled craftsmen. We aim to reduce waste in the accessories industry and stock small, limited editions based on only the quantities we need.
