Status Anxiety

“Buy quality & less of it.” A somewhat short introduction to the model of Status Anxiety. Reigning from Sydney, Australia, Will Sked started a small run of wallets, roaming on foot chatting to local business & quickly rose Status Anxiety to a global brand.

Status Anxiety continues to strive towards making the best leather goods available, constantly improving their materials, production methods & adhering to minimalist designs to avoid all the bullshit that comes with material goods. Born of the idea of self-perception, doubt of your own abilities: Status Anxiety. “We’re for a life lived simply, with a greater appreciation for things that last rather than the latest fashion fad.” Says Will.

An important aspect of producing leather goods is the ethics behind the sourcing & manufacturing of raw goods. Status Anxiety creates their accessories from by-products of the food industry, using only premium Cowhides ensuring no endangered species are hurt throughout the process. These Leathers are sourced from Brazil & Italy allowing the goods to be of a higher quality & crafted into many different types including, Bubble, Waxed, Printed & Natural.

Catering for both Men & Women, Status Anxiety produces luxury leather wallets, backpacks, bags, phone & laptop cases, handbags, suitcases & a range of other leather goods catering for all needs.
