It feels like I have been waiting SO LONG, but it looks like I will be getting my first handbag sample made in APRIL – this year.  As in next month! Phew.

I feel like I’ve been saying ‘soon’ for so long, but I refuse to be frustrated. I’m learning as I go and this is such a big thing for me.  It’s my dream.  I want to get it as right as I can without the perfectionism turning into procrastination (that’s a whole other problem for another post.) I have had to accept that things take time and there are a lot of things to get into place.  Some physical, some psychological.

I have made some changes to the launch collection.  My first plan was to create three handbag styles, however, I since decided to launch with one style in four different colourways.  This means I can get things moving more quickly.  The design is similar to what you may have seen from my sketches, and will be a medium sized, east/west, zip top tote.

All four colourways in the launch collection will be gorgeous fine leather.  Since so many of you have asked about it, I am in talks at the moment with a rather luxurious vegan leather supplier and am expecting to add vegan alternatives by the next collection later in the year.  This is when I will introduce more designs too.  The bags will be made in the UK and feature custom ‘Jennifer Hamley’ lining, with ALL the pockets you may need for your busy work/life balance.

Until then, it’s just a (short!) waiting game to see this first ever ‘Jennifer Hamley’ handbag.  Thank you for all your support.  The journey is getting exciting now, I can’t wait to share more!

Stay wonderful

Jen xx
