A HANDBAG FOR A NEW CHANCE IN LIFE
The story behind our design
The Rio Shoulder Bag was named after the lively Husky puppy called Rio, who had been up to a rough start into the world. She was born into a breeding station, where animals are kept under dreadful conditions, with no loving care. The weak and injured Rio was rescued and brought to an animal shelter.
WEAT founder Nina Sieber, who has been actively involved in animal welfare for years, adopted Rio. The puppy has been granted a second chance in life. Countless numbers of dogs share a less fortunate fate waiting to find a new home.
Inspired by her strength and courage, Rio has lent her name to the latest design in our collection.
Forever in love: A true companion
Fusing timeless elegance and fashionable details, the Rio Shoulder Bag is made to accompany you day in, day out. With a structured look and feel, the bag features our iconic metal triangle, a detachable shoulder strap, and a fashionable chunky chain. As an optional add-on, trendy resin chains are available to offer additonal styling possibilities.

The impact of our donation
We lost our heart to these 7 puppies! With immediate attention required, the donation helped to support the labor, delivery and nursing of these four-legged newborns.
We are beyond excited and grateful to help provide a future to these 7 lively souls with the money being used for vaccination, food, and a successful mediation.
