Atelier Avanzar – a bag label created by Margarita, a lovely woman from Ecuador now living in Switzerland. All of her bags are hand made in Ecuador by local women. There is also a special Avanzar foundation that has been set up and profits from the bags go to this foundation which supports sick children and women in need in Ecuador.
Every bag is unique and made on demand according to individual customer colour and fabric selection. Available online and a selection is also available in various shops throughout in Zurich (see below).
Some of my favourite bags:
