What our customers are saying

Gwen’s eye for perfection is evident in the products which are so beautiful and functional all at the same time. I love my bag – it really is not just about carrying beauty but also change! Thanks Gwen for sharing your passion with the world. Naomi Lippett

Mindfulness Coach

The experience of making a custom bag was amazing. Gwen made the process so easy by mailing out fabric swatches and leather so you know exactly what you are getting.  The quality of the leather and fabric is wonderful. I love my purses and they have worn beautifully. The best part is they are exactly what I wanted and no one else has it – I love that it is unique!!! Cathy Gibson

Food Studies Teacher

Beautifully stitched, amazing detail, gorgeous colour and I love that it’s reclaimed/recycled leather. All that and helping the environment! Thanks Gwen Kerry Macdonald
