This is a great purse! Soft and very well made. The straps are stiff and need to be broken in but, to me, it's just another sign of good quality. I feel like the bag is very sturdy and will last and look beautiful for years to come. Worth every penny. Fast shipping. Great artisan and seller.

Grufflebags - Go a Touch Further

Grufflebags by Angela Coryn
Balvenie Masters of Craft Finalist - 2012

In early 2012 Angela was invited to enter the prestigious Balvenie Masters of Crafts Awards. The organisers had seen her range of handcrafted goatskin bags and recognised their unique quality. To her surprise and delight in early June she was notified that from a total of over 300 entrants Angela was one of 3 finalists in the Leather category.

The Master of Craft Awards champion British craftsmanship and the people that care about it. It aims to recognise and applaud the dedication and commitment craftspeople give to making high quality and beautiful products.
Angela takes a humble piece of goatskin and turns it into a beautifully crafted handbag. It sounds simple but the Awards highlights the years of practice that have gone into honing her skills.

The judges include Grand Designs Kevin McCloud; Robin Wood, chairman of the Heritage Crafts Association; Stephen Dixon, trustee of Crafts Council and David Stewart, the Balvenie malt master. The criteria applied to the incredibly difficult task of judging included the ethos of craftsmanship, the sourcing and sustainability of the materials, the tradition or age of the craft and its relevance to today’s market.

Grufflebags is new to the fashion accessory market and Angela’s success at the Masters of Craft awards is an affirmation of her skill and the quality of her products.

    I have been involved in fashion and design through out my career. Design and the creative use of uncommon materials have always been at the heart of my work. I discovered goatskins, a much under-used but beautiful and inspiring material.

Grufflebags are handmade in Wales from goatskin and leather.

Every skin used for a Grufflebag is personally selected for quality, texture and colour. The nature of this natural material means that every bag is unique. Even two bags from the same skin will still have differences. Every Grufflebag is hand made and hand finished with leather cross-lacing, horn toggle fasteners and leather gussets.

We believe that respect for the animal demands that every part be used. Grufflebags use skins from goats produced for their food value that might otherwise be wasted.
