Retro-inspired leather bag designs from London-based designer

Natthakur is an emerging fine leather designer based in London. Using the highest quality leathers, Nat designs and currently handcrafts an array of gifts and accessories, from purses and wallets through to bags. Natthakur, offering unique leather gifts and accessories with an eclectic take on leather design, has previous experience working on bespoke furnishings and accessories for companies such as Ghost and Mulberry, began designing her own line of leather gifts under in 2005. Her take on retro objects such as old British coins and traditional sweet shop bags results in functional, durable gifts such as the Half Crown coin purse. In addition, with an ethical policy to only use leather that is a bi-product of meat, Nat’s eco-awareness has also been reflected in the ‘Reusable Range’ in which her take on throw away ‘paper’ and ‘grocery’ bags highlights the disparity between disposability and longevity by recreating these designs in leather. Prices start from £15.00 and all products are available online at www.natthakur.co.uk
