About byalicewood

Sales 391
On Etsy since 2012

Two working mothers with complementary skills working together to create and promote beautiful handmade leather goods.

Alice studied 3D design at Loughborough University... since then she has had 3 children and spent many years working for a handmade shoe company.
The business was started by Alice in 2012 after years of working with leather, developing and honing both making and designing skills she decided to go it alone and started ByAliceWood

Whilst working for the handmade shoe company Alice met me, Anna! We became friends and stayed in touch despite my move to Scotland. Upon returning to Devon at the beginning of 2016, pregnant, I began helping Alice with the marketing and sales side of things, having worked in luxury fashion retail for the previous 10 years.

At the beginning of 2017 we officially became business partners, working together to forward a business to support both of our families. We have complimentary skills, Alice being the designer and maker and my skills more on the promotion side of things, we work very well as a team!

Our workshop is in Totnes (The Scope Complex, Wills Road, Totnes) where the bags are designed and made by Alice and we have a small office area under construction. We welcome visitors on any weekday but please send a message first to check at least one of us is in!

Additional policies and FAQs
Your purchase should, with care and ordinary use, last you for many years to come. If there should be any issue with your purchase within the first year, that has arisen through ordinary use please email me with pictures of the entire product and a detailed shot of the area needing repair to hello [!at]

If upon inspection of the images (and if needs be the item itself) it does not appear the item has had extreme use then a repair will be done free of charge.
After one year repairs are still possible, again, please email images to above email address and I will assess the repair needed, cost of repair will depend on level of work needed and the age of the item. It may not be possible to colour match exactly if replacement leather is needed, as my leathers are very limited in supply which is what makes the items so individual, but I will do my best to colour match as well as possible.

The length of time for a repair to be carried out will depend on workload, so please bear with us, we will endeavor to complete it as soon as possible.
