"The desire to design something truly original, never seen before."
In 2012 two curious souls from Sydney Australia, Brigitte MacGowan and Desley Maidment came across a supremely soft and attractive yet durable fabric and couldn’t pass it by. They knew this neoprene fabric was unique and destined for something great… they just weren’t sure what that form was.
They put their creative heads together, sketching and designing intriguing formats, before finally the beginnings of their signature Escape neoprene tote bag revealed itself. After searching far North Queensland for the best sailing rope maker in Australia and adding this to their structure, the sophisticated, clean lines of State Of Escape were born. The girls were in love, they knew they had designed a bag they would love by their side, on faraway adventures and daily explorations.
"The perfect travel companion as you explore near & far."
Timeless, durable, functional and beautiful.
The State of Escape brand is driven by an appreciation for sophisticated simplicity which has continued to be their focus as they’ve expanded the product range.
Hand-crafted in Sydney, Australia.
