The Ultimate Wish – A Bespoke Bag
When you deal direct with artisanal manufacturers, you not only benefit from personal service straight from the source of luxury, but you also raise the possibility of obtaining something totally unique to you, something bespoke. Custom-made alterations to luxury products are often considered to be the preserve of the rich and famous but really it is just a matter of knowing where to go – and you have already found your way to TUSTING where a bespoke bag is just a conversation away.
Each request is considered individually with our customer service team, who will consult fully with you and help you choose what is available in the way of customisation for the bag you would like. Customisation is available for any bag style on our website (though not all the small accessory items) and includes colour changes from the range of colours and leathers already seen on items on our website. We can also add monogramming and we have a selection of colours available for alternative linings. So, your choices include:
- leather colour
- leather type
- monogramming (embossed initials)
- lining fabric colour
- colour of the fittings (metal parts)
Please note, as each bespoke bag is made to order from the beginning, delivery should be in four to five weeks from placement of your order.
Our standard bespoke service does not include alterations to the size or shape of the bag or its compartments although we can usually change strap and handle lengths to suit you. All requests are individually quoted for, although we find that most wishes can be granted at our basic rate of a 30% uplift on the price of the standard version of the bag chosen.
Some further customisations are of course possible – tell us what you’re thinking about and we’ll do our best to help. For example, in the image gallery below, there is a Grafton Briefcase with a red calf leather lining; a Clipper bag in special tweed and a small Messenger with a bespoke tartan lining. These are examples of our “Ultra-Bespoke” customisation service with alterations using materials from outside our standard range and therefore attract a higher bespoke charge – but we love doing them!
