A feminine twist on the aviator's style, this brand-new collection is iconic and eye-catching. Inspired by the vertical stitching on vintage leather aviation seats, there is strength and fortitude woven into the delicate lines. Solid brass hardware completes the look with black leather accents. Select your strap options, and you're set! Did you know "Aviatrix" is an old term for a female pilot? Choose from three distinct bag styles, each with it's own speciality.
Prima A | A large oval-shaped standing handbag
First Class | An effortlessly iconic purse with timeless appeal.
The Trix | An incredibly handy + comfortable chest bag
High quality and perfect size. Love it!
High quality soft leather, gold buckle and snap, really makes a statement
It’s a perfect size, and I love the colour!
I love the detailing and colour contrast of this purse. I can fit my important items easily making it great for everyday use.
Excellent quality leather and put together really well. I have enjoyed using my new handbag.
Beautiful, high quality bag! My daughter loves it!
Love this handbag. Wonderful craftsmanship. Thank you!!
This crossbody is just the right size. Beautiful, supple leather, lovely rich colour. Couldn't be more pleased with my purchase!
Love my new bag. Bought it as a gift but kept it for me!!!😀. So I guess that’s still a gift! Thanks Suzanne. You make beautiful pieces of art!
Perfect colour and so great for fall! I loved it so much I ordered little mini versions for my daughters too.
I purchase the leather cognac bag as a little gift to myself as I knew it would be a bag I could pair with everything from work, errands, meet up with friends. It’s really beautifully made and my favourite to carry. Would make a perfect gift for yourself or someone you love. :)
This beautiful leather and satin bag is gorgeous and functional. I got it so that I had a bag for small groceries or other items - and when I did not need it, I could easily store it in the car, my desk , by my coat and shoes. It isn't as heavy or clumsy as a backpack, yet carries the same amount of material - kind of a merge between a back pak and a small cloth shopping bag. But very fashionable. Who needs plastic with this lovely alternative?
Thanks for asking! I am enjoying the snap bag. It is the right size for a wallet, phone
and a few incidentals.
I would like to take it travelling, however the single snap may make it easy for pickpockets to access the interior.
I love this handbag so much! The raspberry colour is so pretty and classic. It’s the perfect size for every day use. Suzanne is an amazing and talented artist! Thank you so much for creating this wonderful handbag!
Original DesignSee bag
Suzanne designs each piece down to the last detail. From inspiration to pencil sketch, to material sourcing and prototyping. Each style is original and timeless
Quality MaterialsSee bag
The primary material, leather, is durable and stands the test of time. Brass hardware and custom zippers keep things secure and moving easily.
Because I make in small batches I have no oversupply or product waste. My supply chains are short and I make sure to design in a variety of sizes to use materials down to the last piece.
The storefront studio
Come check out my studio where all the magic happens! Located in the old railway town of St. Thomas, Ontario, we're a quaint community just outside of Toronto with beautiful parks and a historic downtown.
With a big old door and squeaky wood floors, this place grabbed me the minute I walked in. Set up with a showroom in the font and sewing studio in the back it's the perfect spot to create and sell. Come say hello!
Small batch design
"My inspiration often begins with materials, whether it is wood, stone, leather, cotton or elements from nature. Natural textures are so rich and varied, elevating those characteristics is the highest form of design for me. Using a material in a new way brings natural elements right in to our homes. They become a functional part of our everyday life, enriching our environment and bringing beauty to form."
The terrazzo collection
Designed with simplicity and the natural texture of stone. A collection of small side tables and wall clocks, made to order. Durable surfaces and genuine material, bringing warmth to your space.
