Trend Alert: Copperpeace Handbags + Accessories

There is a super chic bag line out there called COPPERPEACE.   The collection is a new line of leather bags inspired by the concertgoer’s love of music.  All of their bags are handmade in downtown Los Angeles, CA.

My favorite is the original bag, “The Concert Clutch”.  It features a unique design with hinges rather than a zipper .   It also features a removable chain strap that can be added to the clutch and then mixed and matched with other bags in the line to create a signature look of your own. Each purse also comes with a ‘pick pocket,’ stemming from the first COPPERPEACE line of guitar straps, which have been rocked by Katy Perry, Weezer, Alanis Morissette, Gwyneth Paltrow, Band of Horses, The Hives, Dave Navarro, Michelle Branch and The Avett Brothers. I love the chic patent leather colors it comes in, including silver a hot pink and sleek black.

Other designs include the “Wristlet Clutch”, “The Portfolio Bag” and the “Lanny Pack” as well as the “LB Pick Wallet”, created completely out of leftover leather; the sale of which benefits the Guitar Straps for Students and the John Lennon Educational Tour Bus.

Copperpeace was founded in 2008 by designer and musician, Johnna Lynn, out of necessity after her new banjo was in need of support. She made her first banjo strap by hand cutting and braiding leather. It wasn’t long before these handmade guitar straps caught the eye of many local musicians and Copperpeace began reeling in custom orders. As the orders grew so did Johnna’s designs, becoming more elaborate with use of different types of leathers and exotic skins.

All Copperpeace designs can be easily recognized by the signature Copperpeace ‘Pick Pocket’ and medallion.  The purses are individually handmade by Johnna and her skilled team of artisans at the Copperpeace workshop in downtown Los Angeles.  For more information please visit
