I recently resolved to ditch black and embrace a bit of colour into my life and if you know me you will know that when I decide to do something, I do it wholeheartedly.
I have brightened my hair colour, bought a LOT of new clothes and when I saw a collection of brightly coloured leather goods by Village Leathers on Instagram, i couldn’t hit the like button fast enough.
Imagine how excited I was when I got a DM the next day offering me the chance to choose a piece from the collection. I immediately found their website and I spent a very happy hour swooning over the luxury leather products.
Village Leathers make pieces for men and women offering both bespoke items and a large variety of ready made pieces from belts to braces, from bags to purses and all sorts of other leather goods large and small. They are an independent family business, started in 1974 with a store in Covent Garden and a thriving business online. The company are proud of the fact that their pieces are handmade in London by craftsmen and women using leather of the highest quality. What really makes them stand out though is that they offer luxury leather for budget prices.
There were so many lovely pieces that it wasn’t easy to make a choice but I eventually decided to go for this little coin purse in tangerine.
And isn’t she a beauty?
I was so impressed when it arrived. The packaging was beautiful, this would be a fabulous present – anyone would be delighted to receive any of the products as.a gift. The quality was outstanding, very reminiscent of another luxury leather goods brand which also prides itself on being quintestentially British but charges ten times more for their products. And the design was fantastic, it’s called a coin purse but it has been the only purse I have been using since I got it. I put my cards in the back section and any cash I am carrying at the front and that has been working perfectly for me. I have had it for about 6 weeks now and I love it.
I really could not recommend Village Leathers more highly and this will certainly not be the last order I make. I have my eyes on one of their beautiful clutch bags next which are priced at just £25! For a top quality leather bag with style that is an incredible price.
Check them out for yourself and let me know what you think.
