What is Isla Risa?

Isla (de la) Risa translates to Island of Laughter. Inspired by holidays in the Mediterranean, the bold colours and unique shape of each bag is designed to transport you to a far off land.

The sculptural forms wouldn't look out of place on a plinth in a museum, and yet hold everything you could need for a day of exploring a city, or an evening at your favourite restaurant.

    Let's make your new best friend last as long as you do...

     All bags have been sprayed with a protective coating.
    Please do not machine wash, dab gently with cold water if necessary.
    Note that all bags are hand woven so put your small essentials inside a pouch. Due to their nature they change shape but will return to their original form.
    For crossbody styles, the strap has been woven to drop to its correct length after first use. 
    Please be sure not to overload.
