Custom ordering couldn't be easier

Simply pick the Bywa design you love and make it your own...



Let's get started.

12 + 11 =

Our studio is dripping with recycled and pre-loved leather in all shades and textures – we even have suede! From vintage coats to 70s disco pants, we’ve got it all. Pick from one of our swatches or supply your very own pre-loved leather, and we’ll get to crafting your beautiful Bywa.

From cartoon printed cottons to soft, luxurious silks, we’ve got shelves full of fabulous fabrics for you to choose from. Let us know what you’re looking for and our team will pick out swatches to suit your needs. Alternatively, why not bring in your old bridesmaid dress and let us turn it into a unique lining for your bag? (Because, let’s be honest, you’re never going to wear it again, are you?)

When it comes to precious metals, everyone has their preferred finish. Choose from antique brass, nickel, or black hardware and match your Bywa to your jewellery box.

Need more pockets? Fancy a contrasting thread? Want to customize the length of your strap?

Breathe some soul into your Bywa with your very own finishing touches. Just let Gwen know what you’re envisioning and she’ll help make sure your bag is what you want it to be.

A note from Gwen:

One of my favourite things to do is create something special from your personal treasured stories. This quote is from one of my favourite keepsake creating moments and the reason why the Perry bag is called Perry.

I’d love to hear your story and see if there is a way of creating a special keepsake for you to cherish for years to come.

Some personal work I have been doing has involved remembering my Dad, and reconciling his departure from this world when I was 5 years old. This work has taken other forms, and I thought it was done. But my wife saw the potential for a new form. I was lucky enough to meet an artist whose caring and skill gave my father’s leather bomber jacket a third life. Now I carry his memory with me.
