Beautiful bags individually designed and made just for you

Having a bag made especially for you is great fun. You can sort through lovely fabrics, leathers and trims. You select the handles or straps which suit you best, you get the right number of pockets in exactly the right sizes and positions and you choose precisely how your bag will fasten.  And don’t forget the lining, which is a whole voyage of discovery in itself.

Let us help you to design your new bag.

A workshop phone snap.  A vintage Japanese silk kimono was reworked to create a large tote bag with bamboo handles and wooden ball feet.

It could simply be an improved version of a bag you already own, perhaps with more pockets or a longer strap. It could be an idea based upon a bag spotted in the street or seen in a magazine. Or you could start from scratch with an entirely new design.

Wherever the idea originates, the process of creation always begins with a sketch.

Then things to think about are:

What will the bag be used for?  So we consider size, firmness, handles / straps and fasteners, as well as details like pockets inside and out and - of course - whether you wish your bag to be made from fabric or leather or both?

All of this takes time but it’s worth it.  Clients often say they had little idea just how much thought and care goes into making a bag.

 

They also say it’s exciting.  And so it is, so enjoy it.
