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.
The mass market world does nothing for me. In fact, I find it terrifying. I hate not knowing the story behind high street fashion – the who, where, how, and the price paid for someone’s time. I design and make every bag by hand, with love, using vintage and recycled fabrics. Many of my bags are one offs or limited edition, making them pretty special.
I’ve always been a subtly different – listening to heavy metal but not wearing black t-shirts, being a bit naughty…
