ARTIST &

FOUNDER

Bonjour!

I am Anna - a multidisciplinary artist based in Paris, and it's actually me designing every WOODO bag with huge care, love and pleasure! I am equally a founder of the brand and for the moment a person who manages WOODO on many levels - from developing collections to choosing the best-quality bags suppliers! I put lots of my creative energy into WOODO and always make sure that you are getting a gorgeous bag coupled with an amazing customer experience!

As an artist, and being a very fashion-conscious woman who appreciates beautiful things, I spend lots of time searching for authentic accessories or pieces of clothing for my personal wardrobe. I love having that something unique and stylish on me to highlight my personality, attract jealous looks, gather compliments and curious 'Oh wow! Where did you get that??!'.  This is exactly the type of experience that I am striving to deliver to my clients with what I am creating.

I've got this idea to create something that would not be simply a noticeable accessory, but rather a  portable and functional art piece, stunning and one of a kind, just as its owner is! So the WOODO brand was born!

 

I make up to 4 capsule WOODO collections per year to keep it select and fresh. Since I am a vegetarian, I find cows and calves more adorable alive than being transformed into bags, that's why I mostly base my collections on the use of cruelty-free materials, such as vegan leather, vegan suede or natural wood. I honestly do not think that in the modern world each our bag must be made of genuine leather, given the speed at which we are tricked to refresh our wardrobes nowadays. Some of the bags we only use for special occasions or for a  time-to-time wear, and I believe it a great idea to prioritise vegan leather for those cases to reduce unnecessary animal-cruelty and ecological impact.

One more thing about WOODO bags is they are customisable. You can commission me painting a design of your like on a bag of your choice! Personalisation is a top request when it comes to book cover bags - you can order a custom book bag with your favorite book's cover!

Enjoy your exclusive shopping! 

Kisses from Paris,

Anya
