With the holiday season fast approaching, you may have started thinking about gift ideas for your loved ones. We all want to give gifts that are meaningful and will be treasured for years to come. A handcrafted Nappa leather bag is always a fantastic choice. This high quality form of leather is incredibly durable yet soft. It’s the kind of piece that is built to last a lifetime.

There are many different nappa leather bags on the market, but none are as unique as the ones designed by renowned California artist Ane Howard. Ane’s bags are inspired by her breathtaking original artwork, which has been exhibited at the prestigious International Art Museum of America in San Francisco. All of Ane’s bags are exclusive designs that are individually handcrafted in the UK and France. No two styles will look exactly the same, making an Ane Howard bag a truly one of a kind product.

Ane Howard bags are a seamless blend of style and sustainability, two factors that are at the top of the artist’s priority list. Every bag is created with ethically-sourced Nappa leather and eco-friendly inks. "Our leather is created in a way that minimizes waste as much as possible, as a by-product of the meat industry," said Ane Howard. All Ane Howard bags are made to order, a practice that reduces waste and overproduction. Every style can be made 100% vegan for those that lead a plant-based lifestyle.
