About Mill & Bird
Krissy Anderson started hand stitching leather bags for a creative outlet as a stay-at-home mom with three kids. Her love of fashion and design, combined with the quest for the perfect leather bag led her to create Mill & Bird. Her goal: make bags with timeless designs and a modern edge.
Mill & Bird bags are designed and made for everyday use. She uses minimal hardware and avoid trends in an effort to showcase the beauty of the leather and make bags that can be worn for years and will improve with age. The bags have raw, unfinished edges and leather that scuffs with wear and develops a beautiful patina over time.
She uses traditional leather working tools to punch holes and stitch the bags with waxed linen thread. Stitching by hand offers a strength and durability not found in machine stitching. Hand stitching affects her approach to the design and results in a unique bag each and every time.
We’re so excited to have her collection in our shop we hope you will come by and check out her excellent bags and wonderful craftsmanship!
