Our Story - State of Escape

STATE OF ESCAPE was founded by Desley Maidment and Brigitte MacGowan in 2013 with the vision to create a truly unique, edgy and beautifully designed range of carryalls. The concept came about with the discovery of the gorgeous neoprene fabrication and the desire to showcase its inherent qualities - it's strong, lightweight and soft to touch.

With this in mind we determined that the perfect framework for the bag was through the use of equally beautiful and complimentary sailing rope. With months of sampling, sourcing, researching and design refinement undertaken our signature piece – the perforated neoprene Escape Bag was born. It's simplistic and timeless with attitude and edge - totally unique and handcrafted. The original.

The Escape Bag does more than celebrate beauty in utility – it embodies the term. Attention to detail during the design process and commitment to quality workmanship create a carryall bag that is incredibly durable yet maintains a distinct style.

The State of Escape brand is driven by an appreciation for sophisticated simplicity which will continue to be the focus as we expand our product range.

All bags are DESIGNED AND MADE IN AUSTRALIA. State of Escape Accessories Pty Ltd is a privately held company registered in Australia.
