Using the finest quality leather and hardware, a pure appreciation for functionality and with a subtle nod to classic English design - Willique creates beautiful handbags and accessories with emphasis on durability and longevity. Willique's range is a bespoke luxury leather goods brand that strives to provide classic, modern designs that references designer Anya’s Caribbean heritage, love for sustainable and ethical practises and her extensive travel around the world.
With quality and transitional design at the forefront of the brand, Willique only makes a limited number of pieces in a collection, which lends to a Willique piece being a truly bespoke investment.
Designer Anya Willique was born and raised in the Bahamas and later migrated to the Turks and Caicos Islands where she would reference much of her creative influence to the vivid colours and textures of the island’s scenery.
“My vision for Willique is for both men and women to appreciate the beauty and craftsmanship within the most everyday practical item – the handbag. Marrying my love for luxury leather goods and a need to channel my creativity – it was only natural that I should venture into handbags. As a self-taught, young female designer who has been fully immersed in every aspect of establishing Willique, I am both passionate about showcasing the quality and durability within my designs and excited for the future of the Willique brand.” - Anya Willique.
In 2016 Willique’s debut collection showcased at Library London private member’s club. Within the first year of inception the brand has already gained the attention and support of The Royal Prince’s Trust and has had the privileged opportunity of gifting to the MOBO awards attendees.
Willique captures the essence of Anya’s experiences, wanderlust and personal memories. The importance of sustainable design, ethical production and longevity married with beautiful form are at the forefront Anya’s designs and for the direction of the brand.
