more from Rachel Orme

I have seen a lot of handbags in my time; I can conclude that not all handbags are created equal, some are more beautiful than others.  Rachel Orme's handbags (last blogged about here and here) are particularly special - Rachel specialises in the use of textured leathers and lines her bags, purses and portfolios with Liberty fabrics that are chose to compliment the colour of the leather. They are practical and pretty.

You can contact her directly via her website, or see her online shop on Not On The High Street if you want to buy any of her wares.

Purse made with delicate glove leather from Somerset - I love the detail of the pattern, and the shape of the purse which fits so well in my hand (I'm using my purse to store my camera at the moment).
Look see, lovely Liberty print lining, and useful patch pocket on the inside - which can be used for cards if you are using it as a purse.
Leather portfolio - which is large enough for A4 sheets and slim files (yesterday I had my tax return papers in it, which somehow made the whole dreaded process of submitting a tax return a bit more bearable) notebooks and pens.
Liberty lawn lining in pale sorbet colours which contrast well with the dark leather.
I have just spotted on Rachel's Not On The High Street shop this lovely Rathbone satchel
which has an adjustable strap so that it can be cross body or over the shoulder, and a nice neat stud fastening at the front - it is also available in the embossed leather (see portfolio above).
