VVA Handbags design premium leather handbags and accessories. We are proud to be British and a member of the Made in Britain campaign.
When I started designing our hand crafted handbags I decided right at the start that there would be no off shoring of our production in some far away land. Whilst its tempting to be lured by the promise of cheap prices, my business experience told me that you get what you pay for. I simply did not want VVA to be a faceless brand and I did not want to make handbags somewhere other than on our own fair shores.
I always hoped that VVA would grow and get to a size whereby it would not be possible for me to make every hand crafted handbag that we produce. Of course I still wanted the same quality and skills to be applied to our hand crafted handbags, just as if I had personally made them and that remains a key ethos for VVA.
My decision to hand craft my handbags in Britain has been one of the best decisions I have made to ensure VVA's position as a premium British brand. I get to work with a brilliant production team based here in Britain (in deepest darkest Lancashire) and I am able to oversee the creation of my beautiful hand crafted handbags from start to finish and our production team all work hard to give VVA's customers the best possible product available. Yes it's more expensive, yes it's hard to find skilled crafts people, but if we do not try, how can we ever succeed in continuing to grow a community of proud British manufacturers?
We still have to produce our nickel silver components overseas as there simply is no one in the UK making and producing them but I am committed to one day bringing this production home as well.
Every customer of VVA can be sure of the premium quality of our product, always Made in Britain by our highly skilled crafts people. By enjoying our handbags you are supporting the Made in Britain campaign - thank you.
