Welcome to my new Etsy shop.

I design and make a variety of bags, including: handbags/totes, clutch purses, wristlets, knitting/crochet project bags (with matching needle holders), pouches, makeup bags, yoga mat bags, peg bags and shoe bags.

I mostly use vintage fabrics, sourced from old dresses, curtains, off-cuts and whatever else I can get my hands on. I like to complement these finds with a variety of modern fabrics. I also use fine soft leather and suede sourced from one of the top London leather suppliers (which was established in 1938 and stocks every colour imaginable)! My bags (other than yoga mat, shoe and peg bags) are fully lined with either satin or pretty printed cottons.

All fabrics are washed prior to construction, which takes place in a smoke and pet free environment. The items are machine sewn and hand finished, with top quality metal fastenings. I add final touches such as ornate trimmings, ribbon, silk flowers, antique brooches and pendants.

Each bag is crafted with care and attention from my own design. Why not treat yourself or buy someone else a gift? You can be sure that you won’t find the same item elsewhere...

Accepted payment methods

Returns and exchanges
Although I seek to produce work of the highest quality, as with any handmade item (especially those made from vintage materials), there is a chance of small imperfections. In order to avoid potential disappointment, I use clear and accurate photographs and specify when vintage materials have been used. I state accurate dimensions in my product descriptions so please review these carefully prior to purchase. Please also note that different computer monitors may vary in colour presentation.

If you are unhappy with your purchase, please convo me to discuss (preferably supplying a good quality photograph of the alleged fault) and we can resolve the matter amicably; I am always keen to give and receive good feedback. Please note, it will often not be possible to replace like with like, but I will always do whatever possible to ensure satisfaction.

Please do not return any items prior to contacting me and receiving my response. In appropriate cases, I will refund payments minus any postage costs, as soon as I receive the item.
I accept payment by Paypal.

If payment is not received within 3 working days, the transaction will be deemed void and the item re-listed. If you are experiencing difficulties with Paypay, just convo me within 3 days of purchase and I will reserve your item for longer if necessary.
I will endeavour to ship orders within 3 working days of payment.

I ship all goods via Royal Mail. The estimated delivery time in the UK is 3-5 working days and internationally, 5-15 working days. I am told that this can sometimes take longer, so please be patient.

My default postage methods are First Class Mail for UK customers and Air Mail Small Packet Service for international customers (neither of which is guaranteed or tracked). ‘International Signed For’ or ‘Airsure’ shipping methods are strongly recommended for international customers, providing security at a little extra cost. Similarly, ‘Special’ and ‘Recorded Delivery’ are available to UK customers. I will obtain a certificate of posting for all items shipped.

If your order includes multiple items, I will refund any excess postal costs.

I pack items carefully and will not be liable for damage or loss during transit. I will not provide refunds for items not received due to the supply of an incorrect postal address. I will also not be liable for any customs charges, postal service handling fees or duty taxes incurred on items once they have entered your country.

I will convo you as soon as an item has been sent.

Care of Bags/Washing Instructions

Although not advised, fabric bags can be hand washed in cool water and ironed back into shape once dry. Do not wet leather, suede, wooden handles, metal or silk trimmings. The linings of leather or oilcloth pouches, can be gently pulled out from the bag (whilst still attached to the zipper) and washed by hand.

Oilcloth is a vinyl-type fabric which is waterproof, stain-proof and hardwearing. It can be wiped clean but should not be immersed in water or ironed. Slight imperfections and colour and/or pattern variations, are inherent in oilcloth.

All fabrics may fade if left in the sun for prolonged periods of time.

Please note that I attach a discrete fabric label to each item, which reads “Luli”.

I enclose a handwritten note addressed to the buyer with each bag, thanking them for their purchase. If you have purchased the item as a gift and would prefer it to be sent directly to the recipient (with a more appropriate personalised note), I am happy to accept special requests.
