Wally the WombatSold Out
Oh you sweet buttery croissants, we are BEYOND EXCITED to share our final design for 2021: WALLY THE WOMBAT AND HIS BUTTHOLE OF SECRETS!
Wally the Wombat wicker handbag is - as his name suggests! - a wicker wombat bag, but better. From the front: sweet wombat. From the back: ALL BUSINESS BABY.
Wally the Wombat is here to make a statement, and that statement is I AM HILARIOUS AND I GIVE NO SH*TS. Coz this turd shaped coin purse is MINE. But you can look at it.
Perfect for EVERYTHING. Take him EVERYWHERE. Australian? Wear your pride in this glorious example of our fauna. Not Australian? Wear him in preparation of the day you're able to visit our glorious, hilarious, bizarre and often terrifying shores.
Wally is our latest bespoke design, designed by Jasmine in Melbourne, and handmade using traditional weaving techniques by our artisans in the Philippines - Wally's primary materials are sustainably farmed and harvested rattan, leather, and a delightful polka-dotted cotton for the lining.

UPDATES ON PRODUCTION TURNAROUND AND ARRIVAL SCHEDULE
- Wally is 38 nose to backside, 17cm tip to base, and has a circumference of 52cm.
- Wally has brown leather handles long enough to drape from the elbow, attached by gold hardware/d-rings. He also comes with a detachable crossbody/shoulder strap (adjustable length - up to 132cm long) which can be clipped to any of the four d-rings.
- Wally has a polka dotted cotton lining and is large enough to fit your wallet, a clutch of keys, a very large phone, those three red lipsticks you've always got in your handbag, and that random packet of doodads you know will come in handy one day!
- Wally has a subversive square pocket in his rear that closes via drawstring. This pocket is designed to fit a leather cube coin purse (did you know wombat turds are cube shaped? Now you do!), however the coin purse can be clipped to Wally's handles and you could fit your keys or other small items in this pocket!
- All pre-ordered handbags will arrive with a hand signed collector card, a bespoke dust bag for storage, and a small gift courtesy of another Australian small business/designer.
Our handbags are designed in Australia and lovingly crafted by hand by our weavers in the Philippines. As such, each and every bag will have minor differences, whether it's in the wicker, leather work, or placement of other finishings. These are not faults, but rather a signature of hand craftsmanship from natural materials, and we consider these minor differences to be what makes every bag a unique piece of art. Our professional photographers aim to capture the true colour of our bags, however monitor/screens may display colours differently from the actual product. We aim to share informal photos across our social media which will display how the bags appear in different lighting circumstances.
Due to our bags being made-to-order, upon occasion our ateliers may need to substitute materials used in the sample designs with different materials due to supply shortages. Where this occurs, the ateliers will do their best to find the closest possible substitute, and ensure the overall design remains consistent with the sample.
