Karan Rai creates luxury bags for women with style

December 12, 2017

When it comes to the big bag vs small bag debate you’ll sit in one camp or the other. Why do we have to choose though? In my search to find the perfect one-of-a-kind handbag that was functional and fashionable, I found it didn’t exist. So, I set about creating my own handbag two years ago.

As a Fashion Stylist with ten years of experience in the magazine world, I know a good quality bag when I see one. A good quality bag often compromised on style. A good quality stylish bag often compromised on functionality. There was only one thing to do, design my own handbag.

I went door-to-door to find a leather factory based in London that sold luxury skins from Italy. Only the finest leathers would do. Next step was to find my linings supplier, which was established in 1982 and are famous for their silk linings. Which led me to a fittings producer in the heart of Soho with a world-renowned reputation. Finally, I met my manufacturers who had over 30 years of experience producing handbags for international designers such as Anya Hindmarch and Lulu Guinness. So, the A-team was in place, the next step was to get designing.

Each handbag has been designed with women in mind. They are a celebration of women with an eye for luxury.


Each handbag is handmade with rigorous quality checks in place to ensure the bag you receive is worthy of being a 100% ‘Made in England’ handbag.

The best part of making a handbag which works and looks beautiful is that it attracts likeminded women to ask where they can buy it. We’re a small family of fans and we’d love you to check out our bags at Be part of a handbag revolution!
