Esin Akan launched her eponymous London based label in 2012 after forming a wealth of knowledge within the handbag and leather goods industry; working at some of world’s most reputable fashion houses including Burberry and Anya Hindmarch. Whilst at Burberry, Akan specialized in design, production and sourcing leather goods and handbags, developing strong links with the top leather tanneries and leather manufacturing companies around the world.

A graduate of Central Saint Martins and the London Business School, Akan founded her label after establishing a gap in the market for handbags that offered a stylish solution for busy, independent women.
