Aviatrix is an old term for female pilot. Women weren't allowed to fly during WWII because of their gender. But a few persisted, resulting in a female division that flew any kind of plane, anywhere all over the US, the UK and across the ocean. This collection is a tribute to their persistence and courage to act in spite of opposition and shatter expectations.

Great space, lovely classmates, gifted teacher.
I loved my first class! Thank you Suzanne
This is the 3rd bag I've bought from SF. Love them all! Great value for the quality, colours and workmanship.
The two zip pouch is perfect! The leather is so soft and smells amazing! It is very well made and will last a lifetime! It fits cards, cash, lip balm, pillbox, etc. It has helped keep my purse organized.
Absolutely love the soft leather and get compliments on it, plus it supports locally well made items.
I bought this bag from Suzanne for my trip to the sun. This bag was the perfect accessory! Small but mighty! Perfect for my phone, hotel key, cash and even a small lip gloss. The craftsmanship is above par and functionality well thought out.
This was my first bag by Suzanne but it won’t be my last!
I love the way this fits and contours to my body and also that I can wear it across my shoulder or around my waist. I can fit a surprising amount into it and it doesn’t feel heavy and is quite comfortable even while moving around. One of the best features is that I don’t have to take it off when I get in the car to drive! I love that it is local and handmade with great quality leather and well thought out design. Suzanne was very wonderful to work with on my order and I highly recommend her!
I have owned my black snap bag by Suzanne Faris for a year now. A year later I still love it! In fact, I love it even more. The black leather has worn very well. Actually it hasn't "worn" at all. It looks as good as the day I bought it. I am especially impressed with the hardware on the bag. They are as tight and secure as when I purchased it. The snap has not weakened at all. It still has a strong, tight "snap"! The strap is still in perfect condition. It was well worth the price.
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!
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. Come say hello!
