Alice Yardley is a contemporary handbag designer based in Portland, Maine. While working as a high school art teacher for about eight years in Atlanta and New York City, Alice developed her love for leather-working, color theory, and accessory design. When starting her company in 2018, Alice utilized her relationships with local upholstery and leather shops to repurpose leather pieces into unique bags. A portion of her work continues to be made with repurposed leather, and she is extremely passionate about contributing to the sustainable and zero-waste movement in the world of fashion. Each handbag is thoughtfully created into a one-of-a-kind design handmade by Alice herself.
