Status Anxiety was born in Sydney, Australia (2004). The brand was created with a deep consideration of the social condition that is caused by comparing ourselves to those around us, known as 'Status Anxiety'. A brand encouraging individuals not to make fashion decisions that compromise what we truly value in order to fit in or appear 'successful'. The aim of Status Anxiety is to "create high quality, minimalist leather goods that complement their brand ethos of simplicity and true values in all areas of our lives including what we buy" - Status Anxiety. All of Status Anxiety's products are still designed in Sydney, Australia, and handcrafted from ethically sourced leather, primarily Italian and Brazilian.
