Founded in 2012, Blackbird and the Owl is the brainchild of Peggy Wolf, an illustrator in the design and fashion world. Her minimal, elegant patterns offset the buttery soft leather she uses in every piece with bold, repeating design elements that make her bags both functional and whimsical. There is a playfulness to the patterns and color pallets, and a beautiful simplicity and functionality of form that allows every piece to translate well between outfits. I’m a little smitten. I want that last one in my hands immediately. I can imagine how buttery soft the leather is. Mmmmm. Be sure to stop by and check out her Etsy shop.
