Our Story

Since launching into the Australian boutique handbag market late in 2011, Willow & Zac has become known for leather handbags of exceptional quality, relaxed uncomplicated design and affordable prices. Willow & Zac offers a full range of leather handbags, clutches, wallets, and crossbody styles.

Each bag features design elements such as customised champagne coloured lining, bespoke hardware and a WOW factor which makes each Willow & Zac bag special.

Handcrafted from high grade leathers and unique printed suedes, Willow & Zac bags are made with exceptional workmanship at our boutique factory in Guangdong Province, China. We demand quality, because we know you do.
Clean, contemporary shapes, hand selected leathers, and practical design elements combine to achieve the ultimate balance of fashion and function. During our design process, we pay particular attention to all the details that we know are important to busy Australian women – pockets, zippers, strap lengths, and different wear choices.

Each Willow & Zac style has a girl's name. Some of the names have stories – named after people we know, family, friends or girls I have coached at netball. The bags are our “girls”, so much thought and time goes into each design. I hope you enjoy getting to know them also.

Founded to answer a need for gorgeous leather handbags that retail for under $300AUD, Willow & Zac is still ticking that box some 9 years later.


Hi, I am Sharyn, co-founder and owner of Willow & Zac. Back in 2011, I took a trip with some friends from the committee of the local netball club. We returned with a plan to go into business together, and Willow & Zac was born.

Perhaps it was serendipity, determination, hard work, good luck, a successful combination of skills, or a little of all of those things; but our wholesale leather handbag business grew, and Willow & Zac developed into what you see today.

I still coach netball. And just like many of you, I also enjoy spending time with family and friends, food and wine, and travel.

Say "Hi" when you are on the W&Z socials. I love hearing from you.
