Handbags

This work is the result of a collaboration with Leather Craftsman Justin Capp.

During lockdown, we created a range of luxury handbags made with locally grown organic willows and handcrafted leather. Inspiration comes from the beautiful colours and rich textures of our local Northamptonshire countryside and rural lifestyle, the forager and plum evoke long summer evenings walking in fields, harvesting and gathering fruits. The work reflects heritage craft, traditional techniques and historic practices. . We are still developing ideas and plan to add Harris Tweed liners to add an inner warmth to the bag.
