With a background in architecture, a love for children, a hefty collection of handbags and youthful minds dedicated to innovation, quality and usability, Flying Buttress Bags was born. They designed a handbag line that they would buy for our their own children, nieces and nephews. They focused on an approach that encourages imagination, sustainability and individual expression. Wondering why they named our company Flying Buttress? A flying buttress is an exterior arch whose structure allowed for the great soaring, light-filled Gothic cathedrals of medieval Europe. Not only did these arches provide the structural support neeed, they provided a unique beautiful feature. Just like these arches, the Flying Buttress panels snap on to provide support and decoration to the Flying Buttress handbags, totes, tech cases and lunch bags.
