Metanoia bags don’t just look good to wear, they feel good to make.
Metanoia(met-uh-noi-ah) translates to mean a profound, usually spiritual, transformation or conversion. The process of journey of changing one’s mind, heart, self or way of life. Our creative interpretation of metanoia is expressed by reimagining vintage leather jackets into modern, effortless, handcrafted bags.
Every Metanoia bag is one of a kind and utterly unique.
Metanoia bags are handcrafted from vintage leather, lined with pinstripe cotton, and embellished with laser-cut forms of timber veneer and acrylic. Our bag straps are created from carefully selected, up-cycled vintage leather belts. This means every single bag is individually designed and created, and no two bags are ever the same.
Metanoia bags are slow-made and well-considered.
By breathing new life into vintage pieces, we support local businesses and nurture personal relationships with our suppliers of labour and charities for raw materials. Motivated by principles of conscious consuming, our production process takes time. Every piece is handcrafted to include the unique characteristics of the materials we use.
