One Of A Kind Bags

Are you looking for a totally unique handbag, made to your specific requirements? Do you like one of our bags, but want to change the colour scheme or handles or lining? Do you need extra pockets, a shorter/longer strap or a different closure?

Then you are in the right place, Nelson Were has the solution for you!

These images are of a bespoke commission we are rather proud of. This bag was made for a client who requested Nelson to create a bag inspired by the Margate harbour arm, light tower and shell lady to also include the spectacular Margate sunsets made famous by the artist J.M.W Turner. She also chose the lining to be made of  red suede and specified the  pockets/compartments to suit her requirements.

Nelson created an intricate pattern (that looked like a jigsaw to the untrained eye!)  and used traditional tailoring skills to  assemble and stitch each precise piece.  The finished result was truly stunning and the owner was beyond thrilled when she saw her vision and idea of a Margate inspired bag made into a reality.

Our Bespoke Design Service

If you require a ‘tweak’ to an existing design, a different style, or something completely new, we offer a bespoke bag design service. With our expert guidance, you can choose the colour, design and style of bag. For inspiration you can browse our archive of existing styles. Alternatively you can send us images and ideas of your own, however please understand that we do not make copies of other designers work.

Where possible we will give you updates and endeavour to send you a picture of your unique bag being made in our studio.

We charge a minimum design fee of £50 to adjust existing patterns. This is added to regular non-sale prices advertised on our website. This fee is to cover the additional care and time involved in making a bespoke commission. Please note that bespoke commissions are non refundable, although our normal product guarantee against any manufacturing defect applies.

For completely new designs other costs will be incurred, all of which will be outlined in your personal quotation. Design fees vary between £50- £500 according to the amount of designing or re-designing we have to do to meet your requirements. We will email you a quotation and timescale before work on your special bag begins.
