How do I make my custom bag?

It usually helps to have a budget in mind. Not so we spend it for you, but so we can make sensible suggestions based on your budget. It will allow us to give you advice on the fabric weight to suit your budget and other elements that personalise your bag. We will ask you several questions which will allow us to get an idea of what your custom bag is for and how it will be used. We can then go away with that information to formalise a quote. We might come back to you with more questions once we’ve made the bag up in paper. We do this to get an accurate measure of fabric, stitching requirements etc for your bespoke bag.

To quote your customised bag, we need a clear specification from you so we know what to quote.
