Leather bags and accessories handmade in Totnes, Devon.
Alice studied 3D design at Loughborough University... since then she has had 3 children and spent many years working for a handmade shoe company.
The business was started by Alice in 2012 after years of working with leather, developing and honing both making and designing skills she decided to go it alone and started ByAliceWood
Whilst working for the handmade shoe company Alice met me, Anna! We became friends and stayed in touch despite my move to Scotland. Upon returning to Devon at the beginning of 2016, pregnant, I began helping Alice with the marketing and sales side of things, having worked in luxury fashion retail for the previous 10 years.
At the beginning of 2017 we officially became business partners, working together to forward a business to support both of our families. We have complimentary skills, Alice being the designer and maker and my skills more on the promotion side of things, we work very well as a team!
Our workshop is in Totnes (The Scope Complex, Wills Road, Totnes) where the bags are designed and made by Alice and we have a small office area under construction. We welcome visitors on any weekday but please send a message first to check at least one of us is in!
