Leanne Kohler from LaLaLea is a Brisbane based small business specialising in handmade bags and accessories featuring bold and colourful fabrics and washable paper.

Hi there!

I’m Leanne, Lea to my friends and family, and I’m the creator and maker of all things LaLaLea.

I'm passionate about showcasing fellow female Australian pattern and surface designers with the fabrics that I work with, and I source a range of my fabrics from as many Australian small businesses as I can.

Embrace your inner colour-lover and accessorise with style and confidence with a LaLaLea bag, headband or FAB pair of earrings.

LaLaLea bags and accessories provide an affordable and superior solution for design lovers who want to embrace a lot, or a little, colour in their wardrobe and step out feeling stylish and confident.

Practical, affordable and bold, LaLaLea products are easy to care for, and with high quality components combined with quality craftsmanship will last you (or someone you buy for!) for years to come.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope you see something you like.

Good Words from Good People

Leanne's products are made from beautiful fabrics and washable paper - such a unique and interesting combination.

The products are such high quality, I absolutely love my Pouch and intend to add many more to my collection!


Absolutely love both my LaLaLea bags. My Purse/Crossbody bag is the perfect size for my essentials when I'm out and about, and my tote is a dream for market day shopping.

Love the bright colours and I'm super impressed with the quality of zip and materials used. Thank you so much!


It's great! I actually use my Pouch for my little baby's nappies, change mat, wipes etc. Keeps it all together and means I can use a normal bag rather than a gigantic nappy bag. It's very well made.


I purchased a Purselet from LaLaLea and I'm so happy I did! Being handmade makes the quality of the Purselet simply flawless, and the vibrant colours against the washable paper panels look fantastic!
