Our commitment to sustainable and ethical fashion is at the heart of Wings philosophy and values. All our handbags and leather accessories are handmade by skilled craftsmen using leather from pythons which are plentiful on many Indonesian Islands and acquired by ethical and sustainable means. Wings products are legally sourced and imported under C.I.T.E.S. guidelines. (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) an international agreement between countries to ensure the sustainable trade of endangered species of animals and plants.
Through C.I.T.E.S we can guarantee that our python skin comes from regulated and responsible sources that are diligent in their adherence to all C.I.T.E.S procedures. Our suppliers follow practices that protect pythons from over-exploitation, trafficking and, consequently, the depletion of their population. This sustainable trade is also important for the conservation of pythons’ habitat. Our suppliers treat the animals and the environment with respect, maintaining our world’s health.
A lot of love and care goes into the manufacturing of our products, from skin processing, tanning and coloring techniques, to sewing by local communities. WINGS products are handcrafted by traditional skilled craftsmen and artisans both in Greece and Asia. We support family businesses with long experience in python skin that pass their craftsmanship from one generation to the next.
#qualityoverquantity is in our brand DNA, and conscious, sustainable practices are at the heart of our designs, so that you can enjoy investment pieces that will remain wardrobe staples year after year. All our products come with a cotton dust bag in a recyclable packaging.
These three words define my passion. I design handmade bags, crafted from exclusive python leather, made by master craftsmen. There are a lot of aspects of my personality that go into what I design, making it a piece of art. I adore python skin, it is sophisticated and exquisite, each one different, making each creation unique. There are no two alike, and that’s precisely the appeal in the bags that make up my collections.
I believe in the power of a beautiful bag to instantly elevate any outfit. I design for the confident, dynamic woman with an eye for trends, who takes from fashion only what suits her personality and wears things her way. Her handbag is the best way to display her sophisticated personality and style.
Spending my summers in my beautiful hometown, the island of Corfu, I was always surrounded by its elegant, eclectic architecture, an amalgamation of Venetian, French and British styles, which heavily influenced my taste and aesthetics. It also fostered my love for interior design and led me to Florence, where I studied at the Accademia Italiana. I created my first concept store in Athens, where I transformed a semi-basement space into an industrial open "place of art" with beautiful furniture and objects, brought from Italy, Belgium, and France. I am an avid traveler, and I get inspired by the places I visit. In 2008 while visiting Indonesia I was immediately drawn in by the colors, scents, and exotic markets and fell in love with the python skin crafted envelope bags. Wings is a brand born in 2009, from my own passion for handmade products, using ethically sourced and high-quality materials. It is also a brand that I created in a difficult period in my life. Being immersed in its creation, was extremely therapeutic. It gave me the wings I needed to fly, to break free from everything that kept me grounded and evolve. It still keeps me evolving. My newfound strength, independence and empowerment inspired me and still do in my design process, creating collections of handbags and accessories made with longevity in mind; these investment pieces will carry you through the seasons thanks to their unparalleled quality.
