Akris is a Swiss brand that was founded in 1922 by Alice Kriemler-Schoc. It has come a long way from the simple range of polka-dot aprons that were the brand's signature (and only) pieces when it first began. Now, the brand range covers numerous different lines, including women's tote bags that come in a variety of different sizes and styles. Ostrich leather, canvas and pebble leather are a few of the options available and the color palette is an elegant range of shades, from ivy green to hot pink. The styles include satchels, messenger bags, day bags and cross-body bags.
