At CODE REPUBLIC we convey a subtle rebellious ideology. The Republic in our sense, is reached by women in business who are bold and progressive, evolving into new more modern, socially inclusive club where #Smart-is-the-new-sexy. We are stylish, sophisticated, and feminine, but not dainty or weak. We Inspire elegance but also come with a “don’t mess with me” air.

Our designer laptop handbags are strong, bold, and logical therefore assertive, focused and to the point. An extension the modern woman in the boardroom that matches her confidence.

The premise of a republic is equality, truth-seeking and belonging to the people. We are not elitist, we are astute without pretensions; confident without being loud. Exuding aspiration, confidence, insider ship, compassion, and a sense of duty


Hi, My name is Anthea Rowan and I am the Designer, Founder & CEO of CODE REPUBLIC.
 I spent my entire junior years immersed in design. Studying the likes of fashion design, art, photography and ceramics. Usually finishing top of my class. Art, where my artworks were exhibited in art galleries and sold for thousands at the age of 17. But I really excelled in fashion & Industrial design. There was just something I really loved about the ability to be free and creative yet applying an analytical and functional approach to my designs. 
After a long process of applications, interviews and exams I was accepted as 1 of 100 students out of the thousands of applicants at an award winning leading design school. 
Finishing my design studies, I then found myself working in the corporate world. Starting in business management with a leading premium retailer where I managed a team of over 150 people and then into consumer technology in Cyber Security, PCs & Tech Accessories where I received strong experience with product development and bringing brands to market. I could see fast growth trending in the premium PC segment (Microsoft Surface & Mac) yet there were no tech accessories of equal design & quality for customers to purchase with their device. I was loving what I was doing but I always had a feeling of regret that I had given up on my passion of designing and creating. 
  After working in the consumer tech industry for almost a decade, spending my days rushing from casual office to formal client meetings to cocktails with friends—always with my laptop (among other things) in tow. For years, I had been on a quest to find a handbag that would allow me to go seamlessly from one event to another, but so far, the perfect bag had completely eluded me. 
Disappointed by the lack of versatility in the handbag & laptop bag market, I wondered if I was alone. I spoke to friends and colleagues about the bags they were using for work. The majority, like myself were carrying multiple bags to the office, creating a hodgepodge system to carry their tech devices and belongings. Many had simply abandoned any effort to look elegant on their commute.
With my background in fashion design, business and retail management, product development, consumer tech and my most recent entrepreneurship studies through Harvard University this was the perfect opportunity to combine all the things I loved and was good at. I decided to leave my corporate tech day job working for a major PC brand and set out to create the perfect work-life bags as a part of a collection of premium tech accessories designed specifically for the modern Business Woman. Code Republic was born!
Code Republic Laptop Handbags are both beautiful and functional.
Driven by innovation and meticulous design, I am passionate about pushing fashion boundaries with our hybrid Premium Womens Laptop Bag line. Designed specifically to address the needs of today’s modern woman, who needs to transition from work to play in effortless style, the collection integrates daily practicalities with a directional sense of style, presenting a varied edit of vibrant hues, luxe finishes and classic pieces across our Womens Designer Laptop Handbag & Accessories collection.
