MEANT TO B was launched in 2011 in London by Bernice Angelique, designer and CEO. Bernice pursued her passion and studied handbag manufacture and design at the London College of Fashion in 2007. Originally from South Africa, Bernice wanted to create a luxury product from the local exotic ostrich hides. After many years developing her talents, MEANT TO B was born.
