The Custom Service

CARV bags can be tailored to suit your personal style and practical needs.  You can either customise an existing style, for example adjusting the size, shape, colour, strap length, closure, pockets, or adding personalised initials, or design a completely new piece. Please note that the custom service is available for private clients only - we do not currently offer wholesale or produce samples or products for other brands.


The steps in the custom service process are set out below:

  1. Get in touch with your design requirements or book in for a design consultation session. Click here for more information.

  2. Becky will work up a proposal, including a sketch (if it's a new design), cost quote and indication of the production time. You review this and request any adjustments to make sure you're 100% happy before the commission starts.  

  3. Once you're happy with the design, Becky will create a custom listing for the order to be placed online. 

  4. As soon as the order is placed production will begin and Becky will provide an estimated production timeframe.

  5. You will receive regular progress updates as the bag is made.

  6. Your order will be shipped as soon as possible and you'll receive notification and a tracking reference once it is dispatched.


The custom service is not significantly more than the standard range, although researching and creating new designs does take time and therefore will have incur additional costs.  For a rough cost guide refer to the prices for our main range with the following additional charges for customisation:

  • Add embossed initials £10

  • Additional zip closure or pocket £30

  • Source new leather £40-100 (depending on actual cost)

  • New bag design/pattern £50 (for new designs only)

All CARV bags are 100% refundable and this includes custom orders. The only exception to this is where initials have been added as these cannot be re-sold. Refer to our refund terms and conditions here for more information.
