When London-based designer Vivienne Lopez was stumped for present ideas for her fabulous fashion-conscious sisters, she knew she could come up with something unique. As the founder and driving force behind beautiful children’s shoe brand Vevian, she decided to put her leatherwork skills to good use and created a beautiful handbag.
A business-owning mum of two, Vivienne knew it was important to create a handbag that would suit a busy lifestyle. Keeping size and ease of use in mind, she designed this particular accessory to tick all boxes: sizeable enough to carry all you need (even a couple of spare baby wipes!), a long strap that is versatile enough to be worn on the shoulder or cross-body, and most importantly beautiful enough that you’ll never want to take it off.
Vivienne’s sisters adored their new handbags and word started spreading; soon orders were pouring in from family as far away as Australia.
One thing led to another and from the original handbag, aptly named ‘sister’, a whole range was born; functional yet beautiful accessories to suit men and women.

Adhering to the same high levels of quality as Vevian’s original range of handmade children’s shoes, all accessories are made in their London workshop from only the highest quality leather.
For a luxurious feel and a long-lasting product, the handbags are lined in the softest leather, with accessories lined with either printed leather or cotton. Accessories can be created with that bespoke touch, with custom chain lengths or leather embossing available for the passport and card holders.
