Bideford leather Torridge


CARV leather bags, backpacks and accessories are skilfully handcrafted by Becky Cocker, a female British leather artisan, in a small studio on the North Devon/Cornwall border. Every CARV piece is individually custom made using mindful, slow and sustainable centuries-old hand leatherworking techniques - this means no machines at all, just a simple palette of carefully selected (and lovingly sharpened) hand tools.

By entirely handcrafting in small batches, and to order, Becky’s approach is low energy, without the wastage of seasonal fast fashion. Using only the finest vegetable tanned leather Becky creates accessories that are beautiful to touch and smell, chemical-free, long lasting and durable.

The CARV style is minimalist, with an eye-catching yet subtle modern approach that re-imagines and breathes new life into British leatherworking heritage. The fuss of tradition is stripped away, revealing the quality and natural beauty of vegetable tanned leather through fine detailing, simplicity, and clean, structured shapes.
