About Willow & Zac


Since launching into the Australian boutique handbag market late in 2011, Willow & Zac has become known for leather handbags of exceptional quality, relaxed uncomplicated design and affordable prices. Willow & Zac offers a full range of leather handbags, clutches, wallets, and crossbody styles.

Each bag features design elements such as customised champagne coloured lining, bespoke hardware and a WOW factor which makes each Willow & Zac bag special.

The Bags

Handcrafted from high grade leathers and unique printed suedes, Willow & Zac bags are made with exceptional workmanship at our boutique factory in Guangdong Province, China. We demand quality, because we know you do.

Clean, contemporary shapes, hand selected leathers, and practical design elements combine to achieve the ultimate balance of fashion and function. During our design process, we pay particular attention to all the details that we know are important to busy Australian women – pockets, zippers, strap lengths, and different wear choices.

Each Willow & Zac style has a girl's name. Some of the names have stories – named after people we know, family, friends or girls I have coached at netball. The bags are our “girls”, so much thought and time goes into each design. I hope you enjoy getting to know them also.

Founded to answer a need for gorgeous leather handbags that retail for under $300AUD, Willow & Zac is still ticking that box some 12 years later.

You can buy Willow & Zac handbags from selected independent retailers, or from our online store.  

 The Iconic 5 Pocket Clutch

People started to sit up and take notice when we introduced with our 5 pocket utility clutch/wallet back in late 2012. She was made from pebbled leather, and featured our traditional large logo. Her name was Sophia.

There are now many versions of the 5 pocket clutch - including different sizes, different shapes, and leather or suede variations. Some have wrist straps, short straps and/or a long strap that can be worn crossbody. We also offer a different badging - with a smaller more discreet logo as well as our popular traditional large logo hardware. Our followers love the practicality of the iconic 5 pocket bags, with many of our customers telling us they own several.

Behind the Brand

Hi, I am Sharyn, co-founder and owner of Willow & Zac. Back in 2011, I took a trip with some friends from the committee of the local netball club. We returned with a plan to go into business together, and Willow & Zac was born.

Willow & Zac was founded in response to a gap in the market for luxurious leather handbags retailing under $300AUD. Fast forward 12 years, a combination of determination, hard work, good luck, teamwork, learning and problem solving - our wholesale leather handbag business grew. The Ecommerce side of the business has developed over the past five years, and the Willow & Zac brand has matured into what you see today. 

Just like many of you, I love spending time with family and friends, enjoying beautiful meals and a wine or two. My other favourite things are coaching netball, living in Newcastle NSW and the South Sydney Rabbitohs.

I consider myself to be a practical person, and I hope that is apparent in W&Z designs. My background in NSW Court Administration has enhanced the brand’s customer service and process improvement, and my ability to adapt to the ever changing landscape of fashion and ecommerce.

Reach out and say "Hi" when you are on the W&Z socials. I love hearing from you. 


Discover Willow & Zac for yourself! The style you long for, the quality you deserve, the practicality you demand, and at a price you can afford. It is where fashion meets function, and luxury is within your reach.
