Save 15% on Be.Loved handbags this Christmas. All bags and satchels are made by hand in North Wales.
Confirmed handbag and shoe’aholic, Saffy Allen, had become disillusioned with having to resign handbags from her favourite brands to their dust bags after a few months of use for fear of spoiling them.
‘I’m a busy person and lead a hectic lifestyle; I was finding all the bags I had couldn’t keep up with me and either broke or became very tired looking very quickly!’
‘A chance meeting with some local craftsmen resulted in a light bulb moment, if I couldn’t find a bag that could act as a bit of an everyday work horse but still look great, then I’d design some myself’.
Saffy quickly found that this was easier said than done and under took a six month design process which involved learning the ropes on how to manufacture a leather bag using traditional hand crafting techniques so that she could ensure her bags would meet her aim of being super durable.
The end result is Be.Loved’s first range of real leather handbags and satchels which all come with a two year craftsmanship guarantee.
‘I’m really proud of my range. I’ve been ‘beating up’ my first prototype satchel now for two years and it still looks fabulous, people are amazed when I show them at events how well the leather wears’.
Saffy operates a policy of supporting local businesses with all her suppliers being within 1 hour’s drive of her Handbag HQ in North Wales. ‘Britain has such a wealth of traditional skills; it would be a crime to lose them so I am keen to ensure I do my bit by supporting local craftsmen and businesses’.
