Balincourt was created with the love and passion of Australian fashion stylist Cass Anderson.
After studying and working in Sydney and London for over 12 years in fashion styling, buying, public relations and business roles, nine of those with Cue Clothing Company as Head of Online Styling and Accessory Developer, Cassie felt the call to relocate to Byron Bay.
Inspired by the local fashion community, which is overwhelmingly committed to creating beautiful fashion in line with responsible and sustainable business practices, Cassie drew on her knowledge of the fashion trade to develop an elegant handbag label that will stand the test of time – without costing the planet. Alongside managing the Balincourt brand, Cassie also works as a freelance stylist for brands, influencers and celebrities.
A BETTER PRACTICE
Quality, sustainability and positive change are at the core of the Balincourt brand. Balincourt handbags are all limited edition, produced by skilled artisans with the highest quality materials.
By offering vegetable tanned leather bags, the use of harmful chemicals in the leather tanning process is removed. Chrome free means a better practice for the environment and for you, the wearer. It creates a piece that will develop with age, forming character and a natural patina. All fabric lining is made with a biodegradable linen and cotton blend and all packaging is recycled or recyclable.
Cass believes in creating limited edition, slow fashion – not mass produced. She encourages taking the time to ensure quality production and materials, giving ultimate value, meaning and respect to her pieces.
She also understands that a bag means more than an accessory - it's an important investment and a personal style statement. It needs to work seamlessly and with ease, in your dynamic, modern life.
