CARV is an East London based brand producing handmade leather bags and accessories using only the finest sustainable vegetable tanned leather. Our ethos is to re-imagine tradition by combining contemporary minimalist design with heritage materials and artisan hand production.
Every CARV bag is handmade in the East London studio by Becky using traditional leatherworking techniques. This means no machines; just a simple palette of hand tools. Each and every piece is lovingly made, special, long-lasting and sustainable. Find out more about the making process here.
