Yola Walaszek

ArtForm: City Showcase Markets

Yola’s love for handbags showed as early as in her childhood when she always longed for her Mum’s white top handle bag, which she still clearly remembers.

Several decades later, Yola’s lovely leather handbags are admired at shows around London. Her designs are simple lines in both soft leather, perfect for creating practical yet unique and a little quirky slouchy crossbody bags, and in firm cowhide excellent for making more structured handbags.

Yola’s been making her bags for over 7 years now. She only sells at shows and through her online shop, and has many returning customers who appreciate her original work. She only makes a few bags of the same leather hide, and her leather is always a superb choice.

Recently, she has also started making small accessories which are an interesting combination of colours and are something you will never see on the High Street.
Yola’s bags are exclusively made by hand, they are hand cut, hand punched and hand stitched, so the whole bag making process is very time-consuming. Yet, it is the satisfaction of knowing that her customers are pleased with her designs that keeps her going in her creative work.
