Some of the feedback from my customers...


Specially commissioned.

I saw the beautiful bags on consecutive days but couldn’t decide which one I liked best for myself although I found one perfect for my daughter. After a quick chat with Rachel she discovered our mutual love of the colour orange and said she had the perfect material to make one for me in various shades. As one of my friends said, I now feel like the queen with a specially commissioned bag which is now waiting for it’s first outing. A big thank you for such excellent customer service.

The quality is fantastic.

I’ve just bought a brightly patterned and quirky looking rucksack! I ordered on-line and it arrived quickly and well packaged. Loved the lavender bag inside! The bag is a really good size with very useful pockets inside and out. The quality of the bag is fantastic and I would recommend them to anyone thinking of buying! A great bag which will stand out from the crowd and last for years.

Nothing beats an
individual gift.

Bought a stunning lunch bag today. Perfect size. Came with its own ice block. No excuse now to not take a packed lunch to work because this gorgeous bag makes it so much easier. All of the items on display today were amazing.

Very friendly and helpful service. So much talent to make these stunning items. I love the dog walking bag. An ingenious idea. Some definite thoughts to Christmas and birthday presents. Nothing beats an individual gift.

Charlotte - July 2022


I love it!

Thank you Rachel, my bag arrived safely.

I love it!

Ellen - July 2022


Delighted with the service.

The bag is beautifully made and so practical. I ordered one of the larger ones so that I can get a small bottle of water in it (for my dog, not for me!) Everything is so carefully thought out, from the wrapping in super-cute tissue paper to the little lavender sachet. Very prompt delivery too.

Delighted with the service.

Eileen - June 2022

Cork leather zip up

Thrilled with my new bag!

Really prompt delivery and safely packed. Thrilled with my new bag! A really long adjustable strap makes it so easy to use as a crossbody bag. I love the shape of the bag and even with all my stuff in it just fits to my body really nice. A few times I even had to check it was still there as it’s so lightweight. Living in Wales it’s a bonus that’s it’s waterproof!

"I have bought four of Rachel’s bags over the last year.Three were for presents and the last one for myself. They are beautifully made with great attention to detail. It’s obvious that Rachel takes great care to produce work of a very high standard. I will be continuing to be a customer of hers."

Exceeded all my


“I purchased an Eloise backpack which Rachel customised to my required fabric and added additions. Rachel was so helpful with my additions/adjustments. The backpack was made extremely quickly and it exceeded all my expectations. I LOVE IT! I can’t wait to show it off. (I have already got my eye on a few more items). I highly recommend Saffron Grove. Rachel’s work is amazing. Also do sign up to her newsletter, it is very interesting with a twist of good humour which I think right now we all need. Thank you Rachel.”
