Alissa Valdenassi


Location: Forest Gate

Alissa Valdenassi is a handbag design studio in London. Canadian born Alissa Valdenassi hand-makes each item from natural fibres; cottons, silks, linens, cork, carefully picked wools, and reclaimed fabrics. With wax and wooden accents, these fabrics sustain wear while remaining ethically and sustainably made.

The focus is to create a timeless product as unique as the individual. Each item is made-to-order, allowing for customisation. Stocked fabric is purchased in minimal amounts locally and during Alissa's travels, guaranteeing only a handful of handbags in a variety of shapes and sizes are made.
