Hip Products: Nancybird accessories

Nancybird accessories are real head-turners. Based in Melbourne, Emily Wright designs a range of bags, clutches, belts and wallets using raw, earthy materials with influences from Africa, Japan and Central Europe. I really like the use of mixed textures, combining original printed fabric with dyed leather, and an attention to detail that you won't find from a mass produced product.

Fabrics are all hand printed in Melbourne by local printmakers, using an upholstery grade cotton from a small Sri Lankan fair trade textile mill. All dyes and inks used are non-toxic and water based. Emily has a strong environmental policy at Nancybird, constantly looking for better, lower impact methods of production and distribution.

You can find Nancybird accessories at the Nancybird online store as well as stockists around Australia and New Zealand.
