Summer rhymes with ethnic hand-woven bags and the colourful handbags created by Sophie Anderson are what you need to give a touch of boho-chic to your outfits. Stylish women like Naomi Watts, Sienna Miller, Uma Thurman, Claudia Schiffer and Thandie Newton are fans of the cool label launched in 2011.
The half Scottish, half English designer grew up in Kuwait and Oman and then moved with her family to Andalusia, in Spain. Bedouin weavers and the Spanish colours from her childhood are a strong inspiration in her work.
Before launching her bag label, Anderson worked with interior design and has lived in Paris, Tuscany, Hong-Kong, Spain and Colombia.
The London-based designer expresses her globe-trotting experiences in the fabulous bags that are hand-made with traditional artisanal weaving and dyeing techniques in Columbia, Peru, India and Europe. She uses materials such as raffia, leather and crocheted grass.
Anderson mixes old traditional processes, bold colours and stylish design to create contemporary handbags that look fab with sandals and mules to complete any summer outfit.
