State of Folly.

At the risk of sounding like a complete brat, I’m going to tell you something anyway. My husband has spoilt me with many designer bags over the years and I have bags for all occasions. Recently I found a fabulous new bag that ticks all the boxes in one. Perfect for travelling, shopping and dinner dates, and much more affordable than most of the bags in my wardrobe!


sof-girlsState of Folly is a small, independent brand of quality handbags, designed in Melbourne. It is owned and operated by two friends, Margie Azzopardi & Kat Lebon. The two busy Mums took their combined twenty-five years of travel and packing experience as air hostesses to create a super stylish, yet highly functional range of bags.

They both share a love of travel, fashion and design, but more importantly they also share a clear vision for their business – To make beautiful accessories that are long lasting and are of excellent quality. They say, “Our aim is to find a balance between functionality and design without compromising on materials used. Every detail is sourced thoroughly from the leather to the hardware, ensuring beauty and longevity with unparalleled satisfaction for our product”.

They say they are inspired by art, interiors and classic shapes, but their main focus is functionality, and it shows through in their beautiful, yet practical range.

The ‘2 way clutch’ is available in 4 gorgeous colours, shown above and below. It’s 19cm in diameter, big enough for all your essentials. It can be worn across the body or as a clutch.The girls say “The circle bag with single strap sold out last season, and it looks like it will sell out again. It’s definitely a piece that customers have loved”.

The ‘3 way clutch’ can be worn across the body, as a clutch or as a backpack, yes a backpack! And at 28cm in diameter it’s roomy enough to fit everything you need. Hello, perfect travel bag!

All State of Folly handbags are crafted from high quality calf leather. Leather bags wear beautifully over time as the natural oils of the leather release. I think this bag will be a staple in your wardrobe for many years to come.

State of Folly have some big plans for the future with an exciting collaboration to be announced at the end of March and another later on in the year.

      Hi Debbie,
      I can’t find them either, their social media accounts seem to be closed down too.
      What are you looking for? I may be able to suggest a similar brand. Hx
