About

I’m a handbag designer living in east London, often referred to as bag lady, town planner handbag maker, cat woman, or sometimes just Becky. Carried Away London is my handbag label and this is its showcase site. All my bags are made by hand, by me, in London. Often only one or a couple are made of each style, making them unique and highly limited. Bag one while you can.

I’ve always been a subtly different – listening to heavy metal but not wearing black t-shirts, being a bit naughty but studying really hard, living it up in London but feeling at home in remote places and with nature… It’s this edge that gives me inspiration, creating alternative bags for people who love being individual.

My mission is to get people excited about affordable handmade fashion. Assisted by my big grey cat Eddie, I’m giving it a good go. Crafty doesn’t need to mean frumpy anymore, so don’t get left behind.
