As a Devon-born girl myself, I was really excited to discover Tones-based artisan leatherware makers Anna and Alice, who own and run By Alice Wood.
Established in 2012, the ethos behind the brand is that form follows function; combined with the use of sumptuous leathers, the organic shapes these women create are beautiful and extremely useful. The leathers they use are often off-cuts from brands including Mulberry; the colours they choose are gorgeous (that yellow!!).
I love the story behind this brand: in 2009, Anna and Alice were working together for handmade shoe company but in time moved away from each other. However Anna returned to Devon in 2016 and the women realised it would be a wonderful opportunity to work together again: By Alice Woods was born.
