With a long held love of handbags, Convict was created from the desire to develop a unique handbag brand with Australia at its heart. A brand that was not only beautifully designed and made but also told a story to engage with our customers on an emotional level.
Convict director, Karen, was influenced by a strong connection to the poem My Country, by Dorothea Mackellar, which reflects her own love of the raw and wild landscapes of Australia. These loves influence the design aesthetic and, with this in mind, our handbags had to be handmade in Australia. It was a natural progression to secure rights to reproduce the My Country poem in their products.
The Convict story wouldn’t be complete without researching the amazing convict records online and through descendants. We found moving accounts of individuals and families – stories of resilience, of hardship, of bushrangers, of pirates and daring escapees. We chose a few to continue their journey with us.
