In 2003 after returning home from London, Alyssa launched the fun and sassy Lyssy May bag and accessories label. Six years, two cities, her own store and a new studio later, Alyssa is now based in Melbourne and selling her handmade creations all over Australia.
The Lyssy May range includes handbags, satchels, purses, travel bags, wallets, cardholders, and adorable mini-bags for little girls-about-town. Bags are fully lined and fabric-protected and include reinforced stitching, heavy duty interfacing and hand-stitched embellishments. I fell in love with the Lyssy May peacock satchel made in collaboration with Thea & Sami at the Stitches and Craft show. And the Sushi Sister bags with chopstick handles are real head-turners.
You can find Lyssy May bags in the online store and at stockists around Australia. You can also find more information about upcoming designs on the Lyssy May blog One Day At Lyssy May.
