About Us

Here at LaLaLea we're passionate about showcasing amazing fabric designs by Australian female surface and pattern designers.  love working with colourful fabrics and I LOVE working with washable paper to bring a unique element to all of my bags.

All of my products are handmade by me from start to finish, in my home studio in Brisbane, Australia.
All of the designs I work with are created by fellow Australian female creatives. I'm all about women supporting women here at LaLaLea. 
Whether you're an understated colour lover, or a lover of all things colour and pattern, then my bags are perfect for you. They'll add a pop of colour to a simple outfit, or take that pattern-clashing outfit to another level.
Wear one of my bags with confidence knowing you've purchased something that's unique, limited edition and handmade with love by me.
 
You'll find me at various weekend markets around Brisbane throughout the year. We are so fortunate to have an amazing markets and handmade community in Brisbane and it means I get to meet all of you when you stop by and say hello, or have a chat about my products. That's my favourite thing of all!

What is washable paper?

I'm proud to create products featuring  Kraft-Tex® washable paper. The manufacturer of Kraft-Tex® is FSC and Oeko-Tex certified. The pulp is ethically sourced, and the manufacturer adheres to strict European environmental manufacturing standards.
Washable paper is greener than vinyl and PVC, and more animal-friendly than leather. It's a plant-based, cellulose product with a small amount of synthetic latex added for strength and durability.
 
It's actually paper that sews like fabric and wears like leather. It softens and wrinkles with handling and washing. Durable and tear-resistant, it's a vegan-friendly leather alternative.

Looking after your FAB bags

Washable paper is just that... washable. With use and washing it will soften and wrinkle like leather.
 
PAPER POTS: gently hand wash, fold back into shape and allow to air dry.
 
While your washable paper is wet, it's a good idea to give it a bit of a squish and a squeeze to help develop the wrinkles even further!
