All CARV handmade leather bags, backpacks, goods and accessories can be tailored to suit your personal style and practical needs.  You can either customise an existing style - for example by adjusting the size, shape, colour, strap length, closure, pockets, or adding personalised embossed initials to the leather - or design a completely new piece. For more details see the CARV custom leather bag service page here and explore some of Becky’s previous commissions below for inspiration.

Leslie wanted a large leather tote bag similar to the shape and dimensions of a bag she previously owned but in classy black Italian leather with a hint of contrasting colour from British tan leather.

Franky Graddon from the Pool commissioned a custom Pioneer Shoulder Bag (crossbody leather bag) with a cherry red lining, matching black side panels and her initials embossed on the front corner.

Laura wanted a second CARV custom leather bag for work, but a leather backpack this time. She adored the Maxi Pioneer Backpack but wanted to have it made in striking cherry red colour.

Karen (n4mummy blogger) commissioned a custom Pioneer Shoulder Bag in cherry red with matching side panels and lining with embossed leather initials on the back.

Daisy wanted a smart large leather shoulder bag to fit all her bits for work, but wanted something more exciting than the high street norm. She opted for a tropical bird triangle cut out and contrasting turquoise leather lining.

Frederica needed to commission an old-school style large leather satchel as a prop for an educational film. The satchel needed to have two sections and be big enough to fit specific sized specimen boxes.

I absolutely love the bag and cannot wait to start using it! Thank you so much for using the green I asked for - it looks beautiful! And your craftsmanship is flawless!

Doctor Annie wanted a posh leather crossbody bag to carry around her medical tools so she could stop using a plastic bag.

I am in love with my bag, it’s so lovely I almost don’t want to use it! And all the other consultants are now after one.
— Annie

Thank you so much again, I’m so in love I’m literally treating it like my child!
— Lou

Miranda fell in love with the Big Dreamer Bucket Backpack after seeing it many times at the market but wanted a smaller version.
