Bag brand to know: Truss NYC

Truss NYC is a New York accessories brand – launched in 2013 by duo Elise Durbecq and Gillian Tozer – that balances an ethical approach, functional design and style credentials.

Known for its woven bags, graphic patterns and punchy use of colour, the label is stocked by the likes of Net-a-Porter, Harvey Nichols, Selfridges and The Conran Shop in the UK.

Each season, the brand works with small businesses and artisans from the Oaxaca region of Mexico to recreate the area’s classic handwoven woven bags. To support local workers, a percentage of all profits is donated to Oaxacan communities.

For spring 17, the brand is introducing three new styles: a new oversized update to its standard tote bag, a cross-body bucket bag with drawstring top and a large carryall. Other updates include a new functional leather pocket within most styles.

This season, it has also collaborated with Mexican artisans who specialise in beadwork to add extra decoration to its designs.

Wholesale prices range from £25 for a foldover clutch to £200 for a large carryall.
