Press Sample (Unaffiliated Links)

I recently discovered an incredible brand, FABA, that features stunning wearable art made by Ane Howard. She is a multimedia artist, from Southern California, whose artistic practice informs her distinctive wearable art. As both a fashion designer and artist, her artistic visions come to life in all of the beautiful things she creates.

About Ane Howard and FABA (Fine Art by Ane),

The FABA boutique is based in Southern California. Founded in 2022 by fine artist Ane Howard out of a desire for eco-friendly art to wear, she creates exclusive, quality garments meant to bring beauty to your life and limit your carbon footprint. Shop Less. Buy Quality.

Self-taught artist and ecofashion designer Ane Howard describes her works as 'the expression of ideas and emotions sourced directly from my life and the culture I live in and a reflection of my personal growth.' Ane uses different mediums to express what she sees and feels, be it art on canvas or art as fashion, art to wear. 

Merging her love of abstract and figurative expressionism with the artist's decades of artistic exploration in different forms such as dance, theater, film, and writing, the works presented in Summer 2021 at the International Art Museum of America are Howard's major independent work of the past two years.

Fashion Art by Ane is art-to-wear luxury boutique launched by California-based fine artist Ane Howard.

Fine Art by Ane art gallery is dedicated to bringing art to all in its many forms, may it be a painting to home decor and exclusive fashion. Launched in 2021 in Southern California, it is receiving national and international recognition as a destination website for exclusive gifts and art collectors.

Ane offers her original artwork, fine art prints, furniture, home decor items, and eco-friendly clothing all designed and created by the artist.

According to FABA,

Made with exquisite craftsmanship, this luxurious ZipTop Handbag from Ane Howard's flagship collection is expertly crafted with Italian leather in a classic periwinkle hue. The perfect accessory for a refined and stylish look.


  • Secure zip fastening
  • Three internal pockets
  • 18.5" x 12.2" x 5.7"
  • Long leather handles
  • Handmade to order in London
  • Flagship Signature Collection

Care Instructions: Surface wipe only. Clean gently by hand with mild soapy damp cloth.

FABA Ziptop Handcrafted Handbag in Periwinkle is a gorgeous bag made from supple upcycled leather from Italy, and it is handmade in London. The logo, which was hand-drawn by Ane, is on just one side of the bag. The bag is a generous size, 18.5" x 12.2" x 5.7", and therefore it accommodates a tremendous amount of clothing, books, or whatever you need to carry (in the picture above, I have crammed it full of clothing for a weekend trip). Its durability, excellent construction and the materials used means that it can carry a lot of weight without compromising the integrity of this handbag. The top of the bag is secured by a zipper, and the long leather handles allow the bag to fit nicely under the arm. It features a zipper compartment inside, but also 3 open pockets, and therefore things do not tend to get lost (as they often do in large cavernous bags).

The bottom is thoughtfully designed with 5 metal feet that protect the leather bottom of the bag.
The interior is spacious, and since the zipper opens completely, one is able to utilize all of the interior space, and it is easy to access larger items.
Every single detail is thoughtfully conceived, including the charming metal heart pull from the interior zipper compartment.

As an independent fine artist, Ane Howard launched a Patreon account, and if you are interested in learning more about this, click here. This offers you exclusive access to: FABA wearable art before anyone else, behind-the-scenes content that shares Ane’s creative process, and extra special savings that won’t be given to the general public.

Overall Assessment: This is such a gorgeous handmade handbag, and I can use it for overnight trips, daily use and whenever I have a lot to carry! The quality is exquisite, the craftsmanship is superb and it is stunning in every way. Additionally, it is a sustainable product made from upcycled Italian leather, and this type of eco-consciousness is something we need a lot more of in this era! A+
