Annie with Alex
Annie with Alex, are a mother and daughter collaboration, designing, creating & making contemporary bags that fit into your and your family’s lifestyle.
We have always been motivated by the changing demands on a modern lifestyle, our collection is a range of contemporary and functional accessories which we hope people will use day after day.
As well as our items being hand crafted by us in Hertfordshire Great Britain, we have a unique Annie with Alex twist as our zipped bag contains a vintage key. Each key is unique, and must have a story to tell, which is a little like us!
We make bags with purpose and for multiple different occasions. All of our bags are designed and made with specific items in mind and our material choices on the inside and the outside complement the changing demands. For example: our classic small waterproof bucket bags that can be used as a pencil pot in the office, toiletries for the bathroom, or small plants/ small flowers from the garden. Why clutter your home with 3 bags when one will do!
We believe that bags should be practical so we design and make bags with beautiful natural fabrics which are tactical in look and feel. We use heavy weight cottons canvas, natural French linens, vintage fabrics and British made luxury from Yorkshire which brings differentiation to the rest of the market place. Using natural fabrics means that if over time they get a bit dirty they can be hand or machined washed! Even our waterproof linings can be washed! Not all bags can chuck in the washing machine!
Our colours and our fabric choices are as important as the bag styles, neutral earthy colour tones which can easily be taken out for a quick trip to the coffee shop or can be dressed up for a posh night out – one bag 2 uses!
British. Not Brit-ish. Meeting the H+S Standard.
All our partners agree to adhere to and uphold these standards for all products. If a product doesn’t meet the Standard, it’s not listed. Simple.
We’re proud to uphold the reputation for quality and ethical standards that ‘British Made’ implies.
We get really excited when our makers have sustainability at their heart. We love things that are made to last.
We are here to support our community. We reinvest back into the business so we can assist collaborations and keep telling our maker’s stories.
