Classic Leather Handbag Take a look at the Harper in Ostrich
The Harper is a classic leather handbag. This beautiful purse is something you imagine Jackie O had in her closet in the 1960s.
Another timeless design by Christine VonBun, the Harper is square and handcrafted in exotic ostrich leather. This double-sided purse looks identical on both the front and back.
Available in two colour options truex blue (pictured) or black. The Harper handbag has two (2) magnet closures and an adjustable shoulder strap. Between the flaps is an open exterior pocket. The Harper’s lining is light blue suede, and there is one open interior pocket. This handbag is as practical as it is beautiful.
All Christine VonBun handbags come with a black dust-bag for secure storage.
Shipping Details: All handbags are made to order, please allow 2-3 weeks for shipping.

- founder and designer, Christine Vonbun
Christine is originally from Vienna, Austria, where she earned a degree in Fashion Design and a Certification as a Master-Craftsman in Handbag Design. Her education instilled in her a deep respect for the tradition and craft of handbag design, which is why Christine VonBun bags are produced only on a small scale, with the sort of attention to detail that is otherwise lost in a sea of mass-manufacturing.
After beginning her career in Austria, at De La Rue, Christine moved to Cape Town, South Africa to work for Cape Cobra. While there, she was struck by the exotic beauty of local leathers - ostrich, crocodile and lizard. The influence of her time in Africa can clearly be seen in her new line of exotic skin bags, which introduce a variety of new materials to the North American handbag market.
Christine first showed her own collection of high end leather handbags at the Toronto “One of a Kind” Christmas show in 2005 - under her first label “Morris B”. She continued showing at the OOAK spring show until 2010. After that she went back to the corporate world until a recent launch of her new collection under her own name brand Christine VonBun.
Christine’s vision has not changed - making bags that are aesthetically beautiful and functional, perfect in every detail and of course all handmade by herself in her Toronto studio!
Designed with passion - handmade to perfection - timelessly elegant
