Anya Susannah Hindmarch MBE (born 1968) is an English fashion accessories designer who founded Anya Hindmarch Handbags.

In 2001 Hindmarch launched her “Be A Bag” line, a service by which a bag is personalised with a customer’s photograph, intitially to support a breast cancer awareness group, but subsequently to benefit other charitable causes.

In 2006 the company took on outside investors, and was valued at $38 million.

In 2007 Hindmarch launched a limited-edition tote bag with the words, I’m Not A Plastic Bag, using her influence to make it fashionable not to use plastic bags. The canvas totes sold for £5, launching in four limited edition colours around the world, and were selected by Vanity Fair to be included in their “Oscars” goodie bags.

In 2008, Hindmarch launched a limited edition handbag for US retailer Target. In the same year, Hindmarch collaborated with Selfridges to design a collection of Christmas hampers.

In 2009, her company opened a bespoke workshop at its Pont Street store in London. By that time, the company was headquartered in Battersea, in the converted stable block of a former brewery. By 2009, she had 51 stores worldwide with an estimated sales of £20 million.

In 2013, Anya Hindmarch opened its New York flagship store on Madison Avenue that sold both manufactured and bespoke bags.
