After my stroke in March, I am feeling a lot better now, so going to practice getting back to work slowly, still only capable of part -time, but getting better every day now!
Karina's Bags is a husband and wife team working from our home in Newcastle. Karina sources the materials and hides, designs the collection and sews the bags together, her husband Paul hand renders the artwork for all the bags cuts the leathers and attaches all the hardware and deals with logistics.
Karina has 44 years experience in the leather trade and launched Karina's bags in September 2007, it has now reached a worldwide audience with orders from afar afield as Australia, Hong Kong, Taiwan and the US as well as a loyal following in Europe and the UK.
We design and make new work almost daily, and try never to repeat ourselves! To keep prices down we use recycled packaging and all billing is paperless, unless otherwise requested.
