- Our Snappy Story
Our Snappy Story
With a background in architecture, a love for children, a hefty collection of handbags and youthful minds dedicated to innovation, quality and usability, Flying Buttress was born.
We have designed a handbag line that we would buy for our own children, nieces and nephews. We focused on an approach that encourages imagination, sustainability and individual expression.
Our patent-pending concept is a system of five bags with 40 panel styles that snap on to each of the bags. This allows you to switch out the look of the bag easily and with little cost. Each panel fits on all styles of the Flying Buttress handbag line - so as your panel collection grows, you can easily dress up a new bag.
Why did we name our company Flying Buttress? A flying buttress is an exterior arch whose structure allowed for the great soaring, light-filled Gothic cathedrals of medieval Europe. Not only did these arches provide the structural support need, they provided a unique beautiful feature. Just like these arches, the Flying Buttress panels snap on to provide support and decoration to the Flying Buttress handbags, totes, tech cases and lunch bags.
