She was very accommodating to a slight design modification and postage was quick.’ - Lauren (Drifter Midi Coin Purse)

‘I love my custom pioneer backpack and have received multiple compliments. The quality of the bag is excellent and Becky’s attention to detail impeccable. Becky was also amazing to work with.

The final product is a beautiful , functional , extremely well made, understated yet stand out , piece of wearable art, that I get show off everyday!’ - Arianna (Custom Pioneer Backpack)
