So, it’s no secret that I really love leather bags!
But I’ve never had a bag made for me before. So when Christian Cathor got in touch recently to tell me about their UK handmade leather bags, I was intrigued. The lovely people offered me a discount, which was appreciated, and I chose a style from their online collection.
The Oliver Twist Messenger bag is a simple design, which suits me, natural leather, lined with suede and with a single front pocket. It’s big enough for all the stuff I seem to end up carrying around, including my MacBook Air and numerous notebooks.
The bag arrived in a huge black box with a tulle ribbon, it made me think of a hatbox. Inside was my gorgeous bag, with a complimentary dust cover, and Lindsey who’d managed my order and kept me informed throughout the process, had kindly arranged to have it personalised for me.
Embossed on the reverse side, in gold, underneath the Christian Cathor branding is my name and ‘CFB’ for Cardiff Fashion Blogger! I’m delighted with it! Personalisation can cost a bit more but the thought of having a bag made just for me, and personalised like leather travel bags used to be, made it really special, I’d recommend it. There is no other bag like mine, anywhere in the world!
