Thoughtfully designed luxury handbags, handmade
in Britain from the finest leathers in the World.

Sarah Haran was formerly a high-flying COO of a listed cloud computing company, constantly jet-setting around the globe. Despite owning several designer handbags, from Mulberry to Prada, Sarah struggled to find a stylish, high quality and functional handbag that would take her from day to evening, but would still qualify for the airlines' 'one handbag' carry-on policy.

Unable to find her dream bag, Sarah undertook training in handbag design and leatherwork, culminating in a mini-apprenticeship with a former Creative Director of Mulberry and created what would become the Dahlia.

Today, Sarah's handbags are carried by some of the World’s leading women, from FTSE CEOs to Fashion Editors, and have been featured in The Guardian, The Scotsman and Marie Claire.

Quality without concessions

We searched the World to find the most skilled leather artisans to handcraft our collection and found somewhere close to home.

Our family owned production house in Manchester have been making handmade luxury leather goods for over 100 years, using traditional time honoured techniques.

Taking up to 7 hours to make by hand, our master craftsman use the finest quality Italian leathers from our eco-conscious tannery near Venice. Buttery soft and supple, yet incredibly durable, our bags are built to last a lifetime.

 

Exceptional Value

Our mission is to make the best handbags possible, so no concessions are made on the high quality of craftsmanship and materials that go into every handbag.

By selling to customers directly and cutting out the traditional 300% retail mark-up, we’re able to deliver exceptional products at a great price, so our customers get twice the quality at half the price.

Design

Sarah's attention to detail is paramount. From her initial design, each prototype handbag will be personally road tested for at least 6 months, often being refined four or five times before the perfected version of the design is finally produced.

Every design embraces Sarah's philosophy of functionality that doesn't compromise style. Thoughtfully designed, versatile interiors meet the needs of modern women, featuring perfectly placed pockets and compartments for all your essentials and clever customisable elements to allow for personalisation.

Ethical

Women shouldn't have to compromise on ethics when it comes to their style, so we’ve focused on ensuring our bags are as environmentally conscious as possible.

We source all our materials from ethical suppliers, using leather produced as a by-product of the food industry from one of the World's most socially and environmentally responsible tanneries in Italy.
