CARV leather bags and accessories are handmade in East London - by Becky, a solo female atelier - using only the finest sustainable vegetable tanned leather. The CARV 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 the CARV founder, Becky Cocker, using traditional hand leatherworking techniques. This means no machines; just a simple palette of hand tools and fingers. Each and every piece is lovingly made, special, long-lasting and sustainable. Find out more about the making process here.
