sazbags' Shop Announcement

High quality range of unique, stylish, handmade handbags, messenger bags, hobo & sling bags carefully hand crafted in France using up to 100% upcycled material

Hi, I'm Sarah (my friends call me Saz) and I'd like to thank you for visiting my shop today.

I am passionate about bags and no girl can have too many great looking bags right? What can be better than a stylish, handmade bag that's like no other?

You'll find no mass produced, factory runs here, each one of my carefully made bags has it's own unique character.

+About me and SazBags

I moved to the beautiful Limousin region of France from my home town on the east coast of the UK in 2005 with my husband, Steve. Since then, and renovation of our 300 year old house aside, I have worked hard to create my own bags covering a wide range of styles. What began as a hobby and a source of bags for myself or gifts for friends and family quickly spread to me receiving requests from friends of friends to make them a bag. Feedback was very positive and then a friend told me about this place so, one thing led to another and here is my brand new, sparkly Etsy Shop.

I hope you enjoy your visit :)

+ What do I make?

An almost constantly growing range of handmade messenger bags, hobo bags, purses, tote bags, pleated bags, shopping bags and other shoulder and hand bag styles.

All of my bags are handmade by myself in France and each is subtly unique. The bags are all in stock, ready to send to you and the photographs in each listing are absolutely the actual item you will receive. Please note, some colours may appear slightly different to the real item depending on your monitor screen.

+ A little bit about the materials I use.

I can't claim to use 100% upcycled materials as things like threads, padding, zippers, clasps and buckles etc are usually new in order to ensure better quality and lifespan.

However, I go out of my way to use between 50% and 100% upcycled fabrics in all of my bags. A bag with an upcycled exterior may have a non recycled interior lining but quite often the exteriors and interiors are made from upcycled material.

+ My promise to you...

I pride myself on care and attention to detail and always strive to ensure you of the highest standard of quality in all of my bags.

My bags are my own designs unless stated differently in the listing and each one is subtly unique of others of the same style.

I have not only invested my time into SazBags but also high quality, modern equipment and a dedicated sewing room in our house in rural France.
