Claire repaired a bespoke bag she made for me a few years ago. She added a new zip and the bag is good as new! I am so happy as I love my work bag made by Claire. She was very prompt to reply to my messages and did exactly what I wanted very promptly. Highly recommend her services.

Handmade Rainbow Oilcloth and Yellow Scandi Bird Oilcoth Zip Purses

Natasha, 16.08.23

Claire has made me two lovely zip pouches, with the second being a custom request using the fabric I asked for. They were both made very carefully and you can tell that Claire has put a lot of attention to detail. She also went above and beyond when my second order was lost in transit, and remade the item. Would definitely recommend this small business without hesitation.

Handmade Oilcloth Backpack in Butterflies Oilcloth

Jeanette, 23.10.23

My bag is amazing, Claire is too! She gave me lots of options for fabric, so I could choose my own colour scheme. I also asked Claire to customise the inside of the bag to incorporate a key strap, so I didn’t lose my keys at the bottom. The finished product is practical and beautiful. Thank you.

Sarah, 16.07.22

Really cute little bag. Just enough room for a lippy, tiny mirror etc and some cash. Very well made and fits nicely in a cross body bag. Thank you


Anita, 01.07.22

Really loving the bespoke handbag, the navy leather and the dolphin material are fabulous. The process was very easy to do and Claire kept me updated at every stage. We started with deciding on the style of bag, the colour/design of the bag and the design for the material. When this was all decided and sourced it was just the fine detail of the metal trim & fixings. From the start of the order to delivery it has taken 2 weeks. Excellent customer service and will return in the future when I want a new bag/colour. Would love to wish Claire Grimshaw continued success with her small business.

I love the bag that Claire made for me to such a high standard and to my exact size/specification! I was also really impressed her turnaround time and the way that she was able to listen and bring my idea to life as well as provide some much needed input on my colour and fabric choices!
