Cuskina is a luxury design brand of handbags manufactured using the finest quality, ethically sourced, environmentally sustainable materials.
Company founder, Amanda Cuskin aims to show that sustainable fashion can still be luxurious and without compromise to design, fashion and craftsmanship.
Now based in the City of Durham, Amanda trained in bespoke handbag design, pattern cutting and construction, through a series of courses in North London with International design consultant and leather expert Anthony Vrahimis, who, has a notable range of clients from Mulberry to Tom Ford.
From there Amanda successfully designed and produced a small collection of handbags exhibited at Pret a Porter in Paris and London Fashion Week in 2009 for award winning ethical fashion company Izzy Lane. She then went on to develop her skills in machine knitting, exploring ideas to combine the interesting textures of wool and leather to create a distinctive look. The first selection of bags for the winter collection have recently been released and are available online at http://www.cuskina.co.uk/
