Designed in Canada by Molly Spittal, a former Calgarian, The Stowe handbags are prototyped in Montreal and handmade in Spain. Spittal says she draws inspiration from the everyday needs of women. “My concept is so simple and always just to make handbags that women really want to wear. I’ve never designed an object that I wouldn’t wear everyday myself,” she says. Leo Boutique, which showcases a number of Canadian brands, carries a selection of bags from The Stowe’s collection.
