Our mission is to design gorgeous yet wearable bags and accessories whilst supporting small family owned businesses in their growth. Each and every piece is crafted with love paying strict attention to detail to ensure the highest quality.
At the core of the brand sits impeccable design; the Amal Fashanu handbags are all hand made in Spain using only the softest of nappa leathers. Our timeless shapes are made for women, who appreciate quality and originality; who love beauty in its purest and most refined form.
Black Heart Label was established in 2011 by designer Amal Fashanu in tribute to her late uncle Justin Fashanu, Britain’s first openly gay footballer.
‘Wear Your Heart on Your Sleeve’ is the Black Heart Label motto. Conveying the message that everyone deserves the right to be themselves no matter their sexuality, creed or colour. It’s this fight against discrimination which drives Amal as a campaigner for equality.
The label’s logo, a black heart featuring two crosses as a symbol of oppression is prominent on each piece, and has become a synonymous symbol of equality among sports and fashion followers alike.
