'A customer visited our shop in rural South Devon with a purse he bought 20 years ago in France. It looked well loved, fitting neatly in his hand but in need of replacing. The customer thought they were no longer made and would we consider making one similar. I was intrigued by the design. I don’t like to copy but taking inspiration is fine so I set out to find a way of improving the original. It was complicated and took some time with many cast off prototypes but worth it in the end.'

Our leather is ethically and sustainably processed. The tannery uses a mixture of tree barks to transform the animal hides to leather.
