Buying less but better with intention
The Alice is for those who consciously choose to have the right things in their lives. It is a bag that embodies a connection with ancient skills and family run artisanry - made to endure for years, not seasons.
It's about curation and intention, buying luxury for the beauty and longevity and buying less but better.

The Alice is an artisanal bag made with exceptional skill
One of a kind
The shape of both Alice and Forever Alice has been crafted by our master craftsman using a hand-carved wooden block to give its form and to enable our logo to be hand stamped without the leather puckering.
Cecily Clune has created an exquisite and unique piece
Made with intent
Making a bag of this quality is no accident. It takes years of learning the skills and there are no shortcuts. Mr. Oshima and his team worked to solve the problems of creating the unique shape of The Alice Bags and their meticulous work is evident in every stitch and hand painted edge. It is rare to find this level of craftsmanship in the world and we at Cecily Clune are honoured to be a part of their workroom.
A bag that exudes confidence
This is a bag that exudes confidence and speaks of quiet luxury.
The Alice Bag, with its clear lines, classic shape and bespoke materials, represents your chance to show the world who you truly are. Bold and unique, yet elegant and timeless, this artful statement handbag is for women seeking sophistication, style and something extra special.
Luxury has never been so versatile
It’s not often that an exclusive designer handbag can be called versatile. Luxury bags are designed specifically to be shown off, with more thought given to the way the piece looks rather than how it performs during the whirl of everyday life.
The Alice keeps your contents secure with a large zipped pocket, an open pocket, a key clip on a leather thong and a magnetic tab across the top. It is a joy to use with everything being so accessible.
“We set out to create excellence. We want to make products of beauty that endure. It's that simple and we won't compromise.”

The gorgeous details you’ve been searching for...
Alice is a bag for everyday. From first glance, its quality is apparent. It is a joy to own and to carry, bringing effortless style and polish to whatever you choose to wear.
The leather we chose is from Vicenza near Venice in Italy. We selected it because: it has the right body but remains soft; the pleasing regular medium-size pebble grain; and its protective coating. It is also tanned in a GOLD standard tannery that meets environmental standards with the Leather Working Group. This is important to us.
Luxury, design, quality and practicality.
