Mywalit was founded by Chris Howell in the Tuscan town of Lucca, Italy in 2005. He designed wallets and unique colourways and began production of leather goods with his friend and business partner Achava in Thailand. The elephant, one of the national symbols of Thailand, was incorporated into the Mywalit logo to pay tribute to this country and its craftsmen. Later a gorgeous handbag collection was developed too. The attention to detail in manufacturing, together with the use of the finest soft nappa leathers has quickly built a reputation for quality and individual design. “The best way to do business is to work at the thing you’re passionate about with people you count as friends and family”.
