Radley Stories

Craft & Design at Radley London

The Final Stitch

01 December 2022

Three months before a collection launches


Now that our artisans have been briefed and the pieces have been put together, the final step in creating our handbags is those finishing touches. Some you notice instantly, some are subtle additions that will ensure your bag only gets better with age. Designed to be part of every day and to stand the test of time.


Lucy, our Designer Manager, explains how Radley London bags are designed for life. 

“We want all of our bags to last for a lifetime and there’s certain techniques we use to give them the best chance. Such as...
  • adding feet at the bottom to protect the leather

  • adding reinforcements to the corners

  • or choosing handles that we know will be stronger

We don’t just want our bags to look good. We want them to be a part of your life for many years to come. It’s good for your look, and good for the planet.”


Our London Design Studio love to showcase the skills of our artisans. Dreaming up bags that can only come to life thanks to their expertise. Some of the final bags to be finished will be styles like Sunny Rise Stud. When you look at the stud detail you can see why.

Even the smallest details on our bag are made to stand out - for all the right reasons. From the smooth glide of a zip to the best hardware for that look-at-me shine. 

From first sketch to final stitch, a Radley London bag is made to be treasured.
