Status Anxiety Bag - 'The Ascendants' in Black Pebble & Black Fur ✨
When choosing a handbag brand for our store, we couldn't go past Status Anxiety. There's leather, and then.... there's leather 😉 Every Status Anxiety piece is handcrafted in inherently awesome, ethically sourced, predominately Italian and Brazilian leather, that will last for years and years! It's seriously the best!
The Ascendants handbag is a crossbody bag that includes a secret magnet close stash zone for your phone and an internal zip pocket.
How to care for your leather bag:
Printed Cowhide Fur: All our 'furs' and prints are hides and can be cared for in the same way as most common leather types. But it's important to avoid excessive rubbing of furs which can cause them to malt. A leather protectant will provide protection from staining and water damage. Daily stroking of your bag or wallet is also highly recommended (just for your own pleasure).
Natural Pebble Leather: This soft Brazilian Shrunken Pebble leather has a luxuriously soft hand feel and features the natural variation of the leather characteristics and grain. We recommend using a leather protectant to provide extra protection from staining and water damage.
Wipe your leather with a damp cloth (warm soapy water) every couple of months to keep your leather looking its best (don't use baby wipes, vinegar, etc.) Try to avoid greasy hands (or recently applied hand cream) coming into contact with your leather. Avoid excessive rubbing of light leather on dark clothing (jeans etc) to avoid colour transfer onto the leather.
It's also best to avoid leaving leather for long periods in direct sunlight as it can cause the colour to fade and the leather to dry out. When not in use, keep your bag stuffed in its dust bag or box.
Since 2004, Status Anxiety have been doing their darndest to create high quality, minimalist leather goods that complement the ethos of simplicity and true value in all areas of our lives, including what we buy. Their brand is built on worrying less on measuring up to others’ perceptions and not taking things too seriously. They're all for a life lived simply, with a greater appreciation for things that last rather than the latest fashion fad. Their products are designed in their Sydney based studio.
