Nautica: A Design from the Archives

I love it when I spot one of my older designs from around 2003, still out and about and being loved. Here is a friend who is still using bags she had from me years ago. This is the ‘Nautica’ small handheld. I was inspired at the time by the zig zag stitching and big…

It’s rare that I get to hand deliver a new design to a client but that’s just what happened recently when I met Belinda Grashion for the first time and hand delivered her new handbag. She’d only seen it online, so the anticipation here shows! I’m thinking, gosh – I hope she likes it! I think…

What’s your Ideal Purse?

Everyone’s ideal purse is different – some like a simple coin holder and use a seperate wallet for cards, others want to be able to fit the kitchen sink in theirs 🙂 I know I can’t please everyone but I try! I’ve recently designed 2 new purses, so here’s a little about them. Bertie The…

Mango Ellie: designed with dots

Introducing the Ellie medium tote bag in our fabulous mango leather. I really love the blue and white dotty lining inside this one and it’s got our usual zip pocket, phone and purse pockets and key clip. It’s almost better on the inside than on the outside! The Ellie bag also comes in black and…
