Some of the feedback from my customers...


I am so thrilled with it

My tropical bag arrived today, just as the sun came out .

I am so thrilled with it. It is beautifully made and I can see me using it when I go out sketching to hold my art kit. 

I look forward to seeing you at future craft fayres.

I couldn't have been more delighted

I would love to say thank you for my bag which I have got for Mother’s Day. I had been looking on your website and found a lovely shoulder bag in lovely heather colours. I thought that would be nice for my daughter later this year. I opened my presents last Sunday and she had bought the very one from you and sent it to me I couldn’t have been more delighted . Keep up your great work x

Excellent quality.

Excellent quality and variation of bags, small and large.

Sandra - Feb 2024


My bag is exquisite.

My bag is exquisite - I asked Rachel to make a slightly smaller bag than the one on her website and my order was made and arrived within a few days of my original request. I am so pleased with it - the workmanship is superb and is just what I wanted.

A very efficient business making excellent products.

Ilene - Jan 2024


Such a prompt service.

Very happy with my bags which arrived safe and sound. Lovely touch of the lavender bag it took me back to my grandma and grandads garden when we used to collect the flowers and make into lavender bags. Thank you for so prompt a service x

My lovely bag.

l treated myself to one of your lovely bags and took it on holiday to Wales with me, everywhere we went people (some we bumped in to and some were just passers by) all commented on my lovely bag.  So thank you for making it.

Beautiful pieces!

Beautiful pieces! My sister-in-law loved her handbag, and my friend loved her new purse. My nephew was very happy to have a credit card wallet, made in cork. He likes "green" things and it was easy to send through the post. Then, at last, I bought a lovely bag for myself!

It was lovely that the bag for my sister-in-law had a lavender bag inside. Thank you Rachel

Beautifully made

What a beautiful bag - beautifully made.

Hella - August 2023


Such a lovely bag

Thank you so much for such a lovely bag. I certainly didn't expect to have it so quickly. I'd been looking for a large but light bag, this tapestry is one of my favourites and to have cork leather on the base is practical - easily wiped clean.  I shall now look forward to browsing for further presents or even to treat myself.


Ruth - August 2023 


Unusual design

Gorgeous tote bag. Beautifully made. Unusual design. Definitely recommend.

Alison - Aug 2023

Your bags are stunning

All your bags are stunning. I bought one today at the Butchers Hall in Tavistock. I have my eye on another one, I shall return.

Marion - July 2023



Was lovely seeing all your products at Royal William Yard yesterday and love my new backpack. Wish I’d seen the smaller ones first but no problem, that’s the first thing on my Christmas list, although I may be adding a few more bags too. Gorgeous.

Linda - July 2023


I absolutely love my new bag.

I just wanted to let you know that I absolutely love my new bag, I am so happy with it.

Thank you so much for making it for me, it is better than I was hoping for.


I definitely have a few people in mind to give some as presents so will be keeping an eye on your website.

Beautiful products.

Met you both at the Tredinnick steam fair. l found you both very welcoming, friendly and not at all pushy. l have been telling my friends all about you and secretly showing people l intend to buy gifts for. Beautiful products, look forward to catching up again.

Sue - June 2023


Will buy again!

I gave a Saffron Grove dog walking bag to a friend a few years ago and she just LOVED it. So as her birthday approached this year and I saw that her much loved bag was in need of replacement I went straight back to Saffron Grove!  The out of stock back was quickly made for me and the gift made it to my friend’s doorstep (in USA) a few days early!!Thanks for the quick reply and ease of purchasing! Will buy again! Highly recommend!

Catherine - June 2023


I love my bag

June - May 2023


Arrived beautifully wrapped.

I will certainly look at the website more frequently in future.

Anne - May 2023


Highly individual.

Beautifully light and supple cork bag and highly individual. Looking forward to my next purchase!

Yoga heaven!

Everyone in my yoga class has raved about my new yoga mat bag. “So stylish!” “Really roomy for everything!” “I want one!”

Thank you very much. I’m sure my poses are improving as a direct result!

Liz - April 2023


I was delighted with the results.

I’ve got quite a collection of bags from Saffron Grove now. I’ve absolutely loved them all. Some I’ve even managed to give away for gifts, but always get tempted to keep them all. Fabulous choice of materials too. I even requested 2 caddy bags in the colours to match my daughters tastes. Rachel is very friendly & amicable & I was delighted with the results.

Nicola - April 2023


I love my bag

I loved my bag I ordered and have gotten many compliments on it.  It came much quicker than expected

 I plan on purchasing one for my daughter's birthday.

Carolyn - Feb 2023


Ideal bag if you have a disability

 Ideal bag if you, like myself, have a disability. No weight to them at all. Loved my Olivia bag so much that I asked Rachel to make me a slightly longer one so that the contents I carry are catered for. As always she came up with a beautiful bag. Well done, clever lady!

Ruth - January 2023


Beautiful bespoke beach bag

Thank you to Rachel from Saffron Grove for my beautiful bespoke beach bag I love it, its big enough for all our bits and pieces, can't thank you enough.

Melanie - Dec 2022


Seller was really helpful.

My new bag is great.

I love the tapestry design. It is big enough to hold my kindle or mini iPad, along with all the other bits one finds in a handbag!

Thank you.

Chris - Oct 2022


Great customer service.

Great bag, great gift, great customer service!

Thank you!

Sarah - Sept 2022


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.

Viv - Aug 2022


5 stars and more!

A wonderful bag from a wonderfully friendly lady.


Will enjoy with the pleasure of knowing that it came from such a welcoming Cornish company. 5 stars and more.

Aug 2022


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.

Lian - Aug 2022


It's beautiful!

It's arrived, thank you so much it's beautiful!

Jenny - Aug 2022


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


Very pleased.

My bag arrived safely and I'm very pleased with it.

Jackie - July 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!

Jan - June 2022

Slim line zip up

As usual an excellent bag from Rachel. All her bags are lovely, I have a few now.

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.”
