Anekke’s history started in 2015 in Petrer, Alicante. It was created in response to the need to develop collections of products for women with a special taste, focusing on the detail, but with stories behind each of them. With a heart.
For that reason, 3 brothers with extensive experience in fine leather goods gave me a voice. They made my heart flutter while I traveled to Japan, India, Egypt, and Paris. They reminded me of the lives of hundreds of women who changed history. Women like Coco Chanel, Amelia Earhart, Jane Goodall, and Jane Austen.
And this is my story, of how, in pursuit of the objective to create practical and functional bags and accessories, 100% intended to meet the needs of women and their lifestyle, Anekke took shape through the design, telling stories about trips, about women, through my eyes and my voice.
For many women around the world, the Anekke bags have become much more than just an accessory. They also tell a story, with a unique design, and a travel companion that makes you part of a community of dreamy women, with a special taste.
Indeed it is inevitable: when you walk down the road and you go past someone else with an Anekke bag over their shoulders, you smile, because you know that something unites you both. And that is part of the magic!
Many people have asked me what Anekke, my name, means. And, do you know what? I like to think that Anekke means adventure. It means bravery, optimism, happiness and generosity. It also stands for sensitivity, love for nature and animals, books and music.
Because Anekke isn’t only my name or the name of the brand of bags and accessories that hundreds of people around the whole world have fallen in love with. It is also a metaphor for all the female values of the brand, such as bravery, female empowerment and freedom.
And you're a little Anekke too!
