Beautifully delicate work, love it. Thanks!!
Welcome to Fennel and Wrens shop
The 'FENNEL & WREN' collection offers a little take on the past to carry into the future... inspired by vintage treasures, the classic stories of childhood and those timeless moments when now and then are one and the same.
Working in the heart of Devon, I like to create quality leathergoods made to last. These rather exclusive bags are designed and made by me in my pretty little studio.
My goodness, it seems like such a long time ago that I made the first Clemmie bag. She was made in a green grained nubuck, unlined and, being a work in progress, not terribly brilliant.
But, she was the prototype and the first one which showed me the way. I still use her everyday. She is covered in salt stains from an unfortunate episode at the seaside, grease spots from a leaking picnic parcel and numerous other wounds, but I love her still. I haven't the heart to replace her just yet and despite her rather crumpled appearance other Women still stare covetously at her.
Over the years I have perfected my technique in making her, and all her varied company. I think it's about time she had her own dedicated shop.
Why Fennel & Wren?
Fennel grows everywhere in my garden, I have a huge clump outside my bedroom windows. In the mornings as I sit in bed drinking the first cup of tea of the day, I watch my little wren among the fennel looking for breakfast.

Refunds and Exchanges
I make all of the products to a high standard BUT if some reason you are unhappy with your order (perish the thought...) it can be returned for a refund (excluding the initial and return postage costs). Do make sure you insure your parcel as we cannot be held responsible for parcels which go missing in the post. Please contact us to log your return before posting.
Customers returning items from overseas may be liable for custom charges which will be deducted from your final refund amount. Clearly mark your parcel as 'returned goods' to try to avoid this.
Additional policies and FAQs
I use quality leathers for all of the products, stitched with strong rot proof nylon threads, and quality fittings.
The bags are all designed and made by me, Ren, in my productive little studio, surrounded by leather, trees and cups of tea...
